Our Wedding Anniversary

Wowzers, tomorrow night is mine and Mick's 9th wedding anniversary and 15 years together- that's half my life!

He still makes my heart flutter, still drives me mad- in every sense of the word and I love him more every day we grow together. Corny- yeah but it's true.

You gave me four gorgeous children and a life filled with love and happiness.I love you baby!

To another lifetime of years together!!!

Got My Groove Back

How freaking awesome, I've got my groove back!
Thank you to everyone who left encouraging words and tips, they worked.
I have written over 4000 words which may seem small to some but coming out of a funk, man do I appreciate it.

In fact, we should appreciate every damn word that comes from our imagination, i have felt the other side and i didn't not like it so maybe it was a blessing in disguise.
Off to write some more, I need this done for the conference on the Gold Coast to pitch. I figured book one and book two out of three in a series completed should be enough to know the third has a future.

So, again thanks to all and happy reading and writing.

Is this what they call writers block?

People ask me where I find the time to write and I usually reply with something like- 'If you want it bad enough, you find the time.'

It's been over a week now where I haven't written a thing and I can say with all honesty that it feel rotten, as though I'm lost.
Now I know that all I need to do is get typing but life keeps getting in the way, negative thoughts keep getting in the way- I keep getting in the way.
This is the best story I have ever written, the second book in the series of three and yet here I am blogging about not being able to write. Is this what they call writers block?

My friendly, fellow authors are pumping out the words due to the current challenge or just because they can which adds pressure to what I'm already applying to myself.
I know I am not the only author to experience this but when you're in that hole, you do feel like you are the only one. So I'm writing this blog to shout out to those who are and have been through this to tell you you're NOT alone.
Right after this blog my plan is to not check my emails, not facebook or twitter but to read my last page of my MS and let my fingers tap away and hope that letting go of the pressure and life's distractions I will be sucked back into the overwhelming desire to write.

I'm crossing my fingers, ah no I'm not, I need them to write. But I am hoping and you know what it would be really great to see some comments on whether you have or are experiencing this and what you did to overcome it. Or possibly any advice you have would be appreciated.

Thank you all and happy reading and writing.

Movember- diary of Michael Williams' MO for the MO ELITE, Port Macquarie Hastings Council

It's Movember time again and this year Port Macquarie Hastings Council members have come aboard to raise much need funds for an important cause- they even have a name the 'MO ELITE'

Over the next month my husband (one of the council lads) will be growing a mo, or should I say-Trying- to grow a mo.
I will be uploading photos of his progress so we can publicly have a good laugh and maybe some of you could find some spare cash to donate to
Michael Williams Mater is his profile. Click DONATE TO ME and you can use paypal or credit cards, it's easy as that!

All donations and comments of encouragement are much appreciated and at the end I will be giving away one of my books to a generous person who has left a comment.

Stay tuned for updates!

Second day of growth- what growth, lol
Third day... hmmm. There's something there.
