NaJoWriMo 01/01/2016: What inspires me

It being the new and all, I decided to participate in NaJoWriMo for the second time (after last October) to start the year with regular writing. The theme this month is Journalling for Personal Growth and achieving Goals.

NaJoWriMo 31/10/2015: Dear Journal

Dear Journal, I just wanted to say YAY, WE MADE IT! A whole month of journalling, even if not always consistent, or not always on time, I think deserves a high five. So in this celebratory spirit, as NaJoWrimo October 2015 is now over, let’s review the month, shall we? The challenges Although I very… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 31/10/2015: Dear Journal

So far the entire month of October has seen me try to bring out my creative side, recognising inspirations and ingredients for creative self expression. I have considered creativity in the everydays and the mundane, and re-evaluated how being ‘creative’ at work helped me cope in highly emotive situations. Now, as the current NaJoWriMo is approaching its end,… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 29/10/2015: Fulfilling a Dream

NaJoWriMo 27/10/2015: Creative Job

Would it be a cliché to say that I always wanted to be a writer? I guess it would be, and it would also be a lie. I didn’t always, no. I thought about being a teacher, a professor, a business woman, an au pair, a housewife with a dozen kids. But somewhere, in the… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 27/10/2015: Creative Job

NaJoWriMo 25/10/2015: Acts of Ordinary Creativity

Drawing a picture on viber’s doodle screen to express how I feel. Writing a list of things I want to achieve, and another of what I need to get… Continue reading NaJoWriMo 25/10/2015: Acts of Ordinary Creativity
