This page shows the 10 most recent posts in the creativity section of my blog. Originally, this was all about writing, because that’s what I do, but I’ve come to recognise that we are far more than any ‘title’ or ‘skill’ or activity we label ourselves as, we are all, always creative beings. Therefore, when I changed what wanted to talk about on this site, it made sense to make this area about that creative ‘other’ we are that is expressed in so many different ways.
I have been writing since I was a child, mostly about women’s health and business, with the odd, not particularly successful foray into fiction. I also know how hard it can be to get your work in front an interested audience, which is why I created the Thursday Throng author interviews, to put other indie authors in front of a brand new set of people. I stopped doing written interviews at during the lockdown of 2020 and instead shifted to doing face to face interviews on line, mostly because I’m nosey and like to get to know people personally. These too have morphed from being interviews with writers to interviews about ‘the art of being..’, feel free to add your own word at the end there!
Finally, the Hysteria writing competition began life in 2012 to raise funds for The Hysterectomy Association. After 22 years, the association website closed and I moved all the content to this site so it wasn’t lost forever. Initially, I planned to close Hysteria as well but realised that I had to give it at least a chance of new life, so brought it over too and will see how it goes in its new home in 2020.
