Parada Creations

We southern hemisphere folks are smack bang in the middle of winter. We don’t really see a lot of bad weather here in Perth. We have blue skies most of the time actually. It has been chilly lately but that’s nothing that a warm shower or a mug of milo won’t fix.

If you’re somewhere bleaker I think these prints from Parada Creations will help to brighten your day. And for those of you enjoying the warm summer sunshine, you can never have too much brightness, right?

I will finish writing my novel

So, I wrote a book. I actually sat down and churned out 70,000 words full of loveable characters that did stuff and experienced things. I was so pleased when I finished it because it was the one thing in my life that I knew I wanted to do.

A few people read the first five chapters and said how much they enjoyed them. And I was all “Hooray, I’m a real, proper writer!” Then I showed the next few chapters to someone who knows her stuff and she mentioned that there was a little too much drama and I needed to scale it back lest I give readers a heart attack. This criticism, while helpful (and not mean spirited in the slightest) caused me to seize up creatively.

I have been stuck for the better part of a year. And it’s been killing me.

I made the decision recently to finish the revised first draft of my book by my birthday (May 21) and to reach this goal I need to be surrounded by positivity. So today, dear readers, I present you with nothing but positive thoughts. Do that thing you’ve always wanted to do. Be the person you know you are. Let’s all be positive together.
