🌊What the ocean gave me.🌊
"The only thing you can control in life is your attitude toward life and how you handle the challenges you face. " - me
My New year goal is all #powerofthemindset
Thinking back to my first surf in dec 2017 and this I must live by each day , and I quote
"Today taught me to take every opportunity that comes my way, to cast my fear aside and let the ocean (literally ) knock me around, wave after wave, taking each head dunk and tumble as a blessing in learning how to fall, not fear the fall , and enjoy relinquishing our perception of control... 💜My faith in life restored💜 ♡ ☆ day one surfing lesson with my hubby was a wild blast
This season for me is all about giving, nothing makes me happier than giving to people and watching them smile :)
This festive season I am giving away a paperback copy of my multi-award nominated dystopian romance novel Dead of night!!
Thank you for all the support this year!! #madlove

If you are a writer in any form, you will know that it isn’t always as easy as sitting down and writing something amazing. Often, the process is far more difficult and usually made worse by deadlines. However, to be successful, you need to develop ways to keep writing even while you are feeling stressed. Here are a few tips that you can use to help keep the creative juices flowing.
You often hear writers saying how they will have a set way of creating their pieces. Some will be methodical and have the same routine every day, while others will wait for inspiration to strike. The important thing for you is that you create your own routine, trying to adopt someone else’s approach might not work for you which will leave you stressed. Try tinkering with your writing routine until you find a way that gives you the best feeling and encourages your creative thoughts. Don’t worry if it seems a little odd, whatever works for you is the best approach.
Minimize Outside Stresses
Although there are many writers that use their experiences in their writing, having too many outside stresses can sometimes cause a problem with your creativity. To try and combat this, you need to try and avoid as much stress as possible. For example, keep your work safe, so you aren’t worried about losing everything. Ensure it’s all backed up and have an alternative plan if something goes wrong such as using trusted companies like Secure Data Recovery to get your data back.
Create Your Ideal Environment
To get the best out of your ideas, you need to be in an environment that makes you relaxed and comfortable. You need to think about how you feel when you are writing and see what is good and bad. For example, if you do a lot of writing in bed, do you feel comfortable or is it a little difficult? Perhaps having a laptop tray will make it easier for you? The location of your writing is also important because it can affect your mood. If you write in a small office in your house with no windows, you might feel enclosed and cut off. Try going to your local coffee shop or sitting in the garden, the fresh air and interaction with others might be what you need.
Part of being a writer, especially a writer of novels, is learning to accept that not every idea will be a success. In the beginning, you will likely have many rejections, and this can make you feel down and lacking in confidence. However, it is important to know that many other writers go through the same things and eventually get their works published.
Writing like many other artistic crafts don’t always go smoothly. It is important that you believe in your own ability and that you learn to accept the praise and criticism of others in the same way.
