So, You Want To Be A Writer: Tips, Tricks & Ideas Vol #10

My dad always said humans did our best thinking on the toilet because we aren't thinking. I don't know if that's entirely true, but I know for a fact I'm not the only one who has, in fact, been taking a shit and then they've suddenly had the best idea of their lives, even if … Continue reading So, You Want To Be A Writer: Tips, Tricks & Ideas Vol #10

Cause Here We Are Again: Your Mindful Journey Vol #2

If you completed last week's exercise, and organised your stressors, I hope that worked for you.

Cause Here We Are Again: Your Mindful Journey, Vol #1

We've done me. We'll still do me, I guess, but time's are a-changing, and you've seen my mindful journey. You've seen me list that I knew something was wrong, and didn't do anything.

— Trigger Warning — Last year, I read an article by Jane Gilmore, discussing that there was no national outrage or outcry, and little had been said in the media, about the fact that just the other week in Australia, six women were murdered in five days. Yes. Six women were murdered in five days. As nothing has changed, … Continue reading #StopBlamingWomenMakeMenTheIssue: Preethi Reddy

Broken Shards of a Shattered Dream: And Soon Enough You’re Best Friends Vol #10

I’m an incredibly sensitive person – something that is frequently highlighted by my PTSD and anxiety disorder – but I’ve always been like that. I’d be lying if I masqueraded around pretending like I never used to over-analyse, dissect, and pour over everything I’ve ever said or done, or everything that’s ever been said or … Continue reading Broken Shards of a Shattered Dream: And Soon Enough You’re Best Friends Vol #10
