Keeping up the Postings on Multiple Blogs

I used to post daily on this blog until my writing challenge ended on 30 April this year.  I then promised to post regularly but have only managed four posts since then, with the last one being almost two months ago (and have only managed a couple of posts on some of my other blogs).  I could list a dozen … Continue reading

Note 366 – Happy 1st Blogiversary…Writing challenge complete!

I’ve made it to 366 days!  Today is the final day of my Writing challenge and thanks to the leap year, I have an extra day to fill!  I’ve been planning my final few posts for a week or so now and whilst preparing Note 357 – The approach to taking time off from your daily blog, … Continue reading

Note 365 – Thanking blog readers and supporters (1 day to go…)

Writing was something that I used to keep to myself in the form of journals and I have many going back as far as age four.  It’s only in the last three years that I have started sharing what I write with others, and how wonderful it is to receive comments on topics that I thought wouldn’t have been of … Continue reading

Note 361 – Writing challenge horizon in sight (5 days to go…)

I would be lying if I said that this writing challenge has been easy; in fact it’s been harder these last few weeks than it has been all year. With 5 days to go, I feel like I’ve been on a very long flight and now I’m starting my descent into a new and exciting … Continue reading

Note 356 – Have I met my writing challenge? 10 days to go…

The 10 day countdown will begin at midnight tonight (UK time). Today felt like a good day to look back at the very first post on 30 April 2011 (the day before the challenge began) and record my thoughts against what I set out to achieve. I’ve taken a few quotes from the original post: … Continue reading

Note 347 – A writer’s decision to change direction

The point that I bounced around yesterday was that when you are reviewing the writing challenges you have set yourself (or any type of challenge for that matter) you should feel confident about changing your direction.  It feels good to commit yourself to something you love doing and then pour all your time and effort into it, but not so good when … Continue reading

Note 346 – Reviewing writing challenges and goals

Imagine this – you are in the middle of a challenge that you set yourself and you can’t break free for fear of failing, or letting others down. Failing what? Letting who down? If you set the goal, you can change the following things about it: Where the new goal post is e.g. change it … Continue reading

Note 336 – The 7 advantages and 7 disadvantages of daily blogging

11 months down, 1 to go! With just 30 days to go on my 366 day Writing Challenge, I am pleased to say that it’s been an enjoyable experience, but also very time-consuming. Blogging every day (in addition to a day job) without a break can be exhausting some days and it’s not something I’m … Continue reading

Note 317 – I AM a writer, so let’s move on a step…

I just made myself smile when I read the following post from five months ago: Note 169 – When are you qualified to say ‘I am a writer’? as I feel so different now.  It was difficult back then to say ‘I am a project manager, and also a writer‘ whenever anyone asked what I do.  I used … Continue reading

Note 316 – Fifty days to go…what’s kept me going

It only seemed like the other day when I mentioned that I had 100 days to go until my writing challenge ends. Now I’m starting the 50 day countdown; after today there will be 50 more posts and then who knows! eBooks, more posts, new challenge – the world is my oyster (wonder where that … Continue reading
