Judith Morgan: The Business Blogger

Today I was featured in an article about blogging (one of my all-time fave things to do, blog, not necessarily be featured although that’s always nice too!). It was published by Dr Lisa Orban of Golden Notebook and here’s my bit. You can read the article in full HERE. I am The Business Blogger but the article includes contributions from bloggers who are experts in lifestyle, travel and parenting too. The Business Blogger Judith Morgan of Judith Morgan: The Small Business Oracle is a business coach who has been blogging for over 12 years – even before WordPress started! She is the […]

How to Do Something Really Cool on Your Kindle

This is a photo of Jo reading my book on her Kindle. She shared the photo when she was on her travels to Australia in December. Jo bought my book at Selz where you can download it in three formats, one of which is Mobi and that’s the one you need to choose if you want to read any ebook on your Kindle device or app, not just mine! Most people who bought my book at Selz found that it magically opened on their gadget of choice “at the touch of a button” or they knew how to do what […]

52 Books in 2018

I am intent on reading 52 books in 2018 and ever since I hatched this plan pre-Xmas I have been collecting recommendations onto my special wish list at Amazon which I perused last weekend thinking it must be some time for a decent novel, after January spent with three “work” books and then a bumper crime novel. There were plenty of good choices there but none took my fancy. One of them had been recommended to me AGES ago by Sally K when we had been in a virtual book club together and I’d always had it in the back of […]

Becoming an Impossibilist

Wednesday was Day 31 of 2018 and Day 31 of the project I am doing following Michael Neill’s book called Creating the Impossible, which is intended to take 90 days. Here’s my first significant update although I did write a bit about this on my blog earlier in January when I first got going. I decided I would make the broad context of my 90 days, my impossible project, about becoming A Proper Writer. This arose because at the beginning of January I was still rather high about the recent publication of what I regard as my first Proper Book: Your […]

Writing Down My Soul

Between Christmas and New Year I was idly (as opposed to purposefully) casting about for resources to help me shape my 2018. My brief included these words: I am looking for something spooky, the more woo-woo the better. Something new. Something we’ve not done before and something where I feel I have no idea what’s going on, but I trust it to do its magic; I will write some things down and let them underpin my 2018 and be amazed and delighted when they manifest, that sort of vibe!  Gillian was inspired when she suggested a book by Janet Conner which, in turn, […]

Me and Writing and Pain

What is it about me and writing and pain? My body gives me messages when I write and, so far, they have all been painful ones. I have no idea yet how to interpret these messages. I shall let you know when I do. Last summer when I was writing my first proper book, Your Biz Your Way, I found myself in terrible sciatica pain which delayed the book by about a month. I have no idea why this happened. It became excruciatingly painful to sit in the writer’s chair. All I could do was lie down flat as a way […]

Book Report

It’s a month since I published my first “proper” book, called Your Biz Your Way. Here’s my first book report… er, my first report about the book I mean! Words, eh? I monitor CreateSpace (where you publish print versions on Amazon) pretty often because what you measure increases and sales there in month one total 36. Similarly, I monitor (and regularly ask for) reviews on both Amazon UK (13) and US (2), total 15. Digital versions sold via my own online shop at Selz total 29. So grand total book sales in Month 1 = 29+36 in month one, and […]

My First Proper Book

Three weeks ago I had a mini epiphany when I was out driving the car, as often happens. Driving in a trance has become my new shower equivalent when it comes to creative ideas generation and excavating solutions to problems, mine or yours. I’ve been thinking for what feels like ages about writing, writing more and becoming a writer first and foremost in the sense that I would put Writer in my passport instead of Coach. And yet I am SO not ready to give up coaching and mentoring, in fact I am enjoying that work more than ever right […]

Doin’ Me

Yo! Sorry. Going to go a bit street on you today, because this post has been inspired by a rapper. Yes, I know! And me (technically) a pensioner. I am a sucker for an empowerment song. I know this about myself. And one whiff of this song during a TV ad break and I was hooked. Doin’ Me by Mikey Mike. I shared it on Facebook. Clearly I am alone in this as it drew precisely zero interaction. No, I lie. One Like – ha! Presumably everyone else was ff-ing through the ads? OK, some of the lyrics and ideas […]
