Being Creative in Survival Mode

I know that I am in an incredibly fortunate position whilst in lockdown. My stress levels are relatively low, and for the most part I am able to enjoy being stuck at home, and have the privilege of having the mental and emotional energy to be creative and productive during this time. This time last... Continue Reading →

Productivity vs Creativity

Reflecting on the pressure I have been placing on myself got me thinking about something I've been observing on social media lately. I've observed a lot of people hitting back at 'Lockdown Motivators' and the notion that if you are not using this downtime to be productive you are somehow wasting it. Reminding us all...

Releasing the Pressure.

Last night I came down with a cervicogenic headache. The result of way too much time spent sitting at the computer over the past few weeks, putting unnecessary stress on myself to be productive with all this extra free time. I recently finished typing the revised edition of my book Paid To Dance: Asha’s Story... Continue Reading →

I had originally planned to hit the New Year running with a rewrite of my book Paid To Dance: Asha's Story Part Two. Then... Continue Reading →

Holiday Writing- The Struggle Is Real

A prequel to my suburban noir short story The New Neighbors. As any introvert could agree, Christmas is a draining time,... Continue Reading →

The Ending…Far Off In The Distance

I'm working on a prequel to my short story 'Grave Bargains' at the moment. Its a novella called 'Bedouin Boy'. I started this project out of irritability and boredom. It was early December. I'd just finished NaNoWriMo, and I needed something to tide me over until the New Year when I would resume normal programming... Continue Reading →
