A little dose of inspiration

Sometimes articles like this can provide a little boost when confidence is flagging:

I haven’t read any of Tim Ellis’s book but I do find his story inspiring.  I’ve saved it to my bookmarks for quick reference whenever I need a little dose of inspiration.  It’s a story that proves that anything is possible if you put your mind to it.

Just checkin’ in!

Wow, I can’t believe a whole month has gone by since I last updated this blog.  I must make an effort not to be lax with my blogging but not to worry, I haven’t been lazy in my hiatus.  On the contrary – I have been busy.  I am writing every day and if I’m not writing, I’m editing.  I’m hoping I will have a short story compilation available for download by the end of June.  I can’t promise it will be perfect but I’m enjoying being productive right now and to me, the journey is just as exciting as the destination.  That’s not to say that I won’t be celebrating when I reach it!
