My writing grows a new freelance branch

Writing – Write!  Write!  Write!

This writing advice given to me in the autumn by a super lady, Catrin George who I met in Portugal.  Catrin is a tour guide and author.

For a while now I’ve been thinking about taking a sabbatical from my web content writing and taking a different turn.

Well, how do I move forward with this?  What do I want to write about?  How do I start?   Do I write poems?  Or short stories?  And who am I writing for?  I’m used to clients telling me the topics to write about, and who the audience they want me to write for.  This ‘writing for myself’ thing is challenging.


Similar advice – to write! write! write!

Similar advice was given to me by author Jeff Brown.  I recently embarked on one of his online courses.   For anyone starting out on writing for themselves, he suggests to write for a minimum of 30 minutes a day.  And if you can’t think what to write, then write anything, any words that tumble out, and then take a step back, come back to the words and see if you can put something together with them.

My freelance tree grows a new branch

So, my web content journey and my freelance tree grow a new branch.  Colleague, Christina Egan at Brittle Star SEO will be taking on  web content writing projects for me.  To all new clients who land on this page, please do contact Christina and she will do her best to help.

Big changes start with little steps

Finally, I’ve reminded myself that big changes start with little steps.  This is my first little step, to tell the world about my plan.  Maybe in my next post I’ll be able to tell you more about what I’ll be writing about.  But then again, maybe not.  That’s the beauty of an adventure, we never know where it will go, where it will take us, how we will get there, and what we will experience along the way.

So there we go. I’ve sown the seed and I’ve taken the first small steps towards finding my very own authentic writing voice.

And to end with a very BIG thank you to Catrin for her super super advice!

I feel quite strongly that there must come a point when a close advisory referendum 3 years ago based on undeliverable lies, illegality+ electoral malpractice, can no longer justify the economic political+ social mayhem being caused. Why is no one saying this? #StopBrexit

The UK has eradicated many orchards in recent decades, and now imports 70% of its apples. Planting more apple trees would cut food miles, soak up CO2, help wildlife, cheer up our landscapes, and allow us to enjoy and save traditional or rare apple varieties. Let's get planting 🍎

The backstop is an insurance to avoid a hard border on the island of Ireland unless and until an alternative is found. Those against the backstop and not proposing realistic alternatives in fact support reestablishing a border. Even if they do not admit it.
