In 2015, I set myself a challenge to write everyday. I did this for a number of personal reasons – none of them even remotely close to documenting our travels around the country in a caravan! Nope, that was not ever on the radar!
I set the challenge initially to shift a very stubborn habit of writing briefing notes and corporate documentation – a habit forged over decades and which had robbed me of my ability to be creative and make words of fiction flow onto a page. Harbouring a long-time desire to write a book, I had a million ideas jotted in notebooks and a dozen half-arsed manuscripts filed in obscure and random places. I needed to remember to write freely again.
But blog content, like most things in life, is a spectrum, with posts situated somewhere on the continuum of brilliant and rubbish. You will find posts you love and that resonate deeply and posts that won’t even warrant a second thought. I don’t claim to deliver a literary masterpiece everyday, but I’m confident that you’ll find a charming combination of both here in this space.
So rather than apologise for the less than perfect posts that appear from time to time, I have decided to make it easier for you to read some of my favourite posts and those ones that have resonated with others. I hope you enjoy.
