INSPIRATIONAL WRITING QUOTE – WRITING QUENCHES THE SOUL THAT NOTHING ELSE CAN REACH!!


SOUL QUENCHING WRITING QUOTE

Writing literally does quench my soul that nothing else can reach. I love it so much. To be a full-time writer is my dream. I have started my next Kindle Quirky Book that should be coming out in print format too, but this one is different again, on subject matter, to the ones that are already out.

Lady Gaga recently came out as having Fibromyalgia, see her post here on Yahoo News https://uk.style.yahoo.com/lady-gaga-revealed-suffering-fibromyalgia-115833694.html

Something I don’t talk about often, especially on this blog, is the fact I also have this. In a nutshell, it is a chronic pain condition that affects the nerves and muscles of the body. You feel super sensitive to pain and constantly have pain in your body. I don’t like to dwell on it as what we focus on expands, but I have had it since 2012. I manage it well, and use the power of my mind to block out a lot of the pain. It makes my current job search a little more difficult (I am being made redundant for a 3rd time). That is why it is even more important I fulfil my writing dreams.

To cut a long story short, I have felt for some time that I need to write a book about how I unconventionally manage this condition, in the hope to help someone. The only problem is, it causes me more conscious pain to write the book, however, it is something I must do in order to help others. So about 6 or 8 weeks ago, I started to write my book in draft form, and left it for a bit. Then BOOM! On 13th of September, I saw that Lady Gaga article and thought NOW, I must type it up and get that book out, so that is what I started to do on Saturday 16th of September. I am super charging my typing speed. Watch this space – you know it is not going to be a normal, boring book, but a far out, Quirky Book that will pack a quirky punch!! I am really excited about this one!!

Do you know anyone else with this condition? How do they manage it???

Stay quirky and write soon –

P.S. If you are also facing redundancy, you will love my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy Book – I am using my own book and getting 100% response to my job applications, so it is definitely worth a read.

How to Unleash the Kid in You! And Be More Powerful Beyond belief!


What if I were to tell you, that unleashing your inner kid is one of the best tools you can use in your life or business? That it can set you free from the things that are holding you back and that unleashing it could give you that new lease of life and freedom that you so richly deserve?

You are likely to have been conditioned from a young age to believe you need to be an ‘adult’, and you should always inspire to be an adult – but why? Some would argue because you become more responsible and make better decisions, but do you?

What I have discovered is that without unleashing your inner kid, you become less flexible; more stuck in ideas; more rigid, and more fearful of trying new things, or of criticism. This can cause mental torment and be extremely unhealthy in not allowing you to live your life – as your true, authentic self, and achieve your full potential so you can be very happy.

Kids try new things out; they explore; they ask lots of questions; they are curious about the world around them and not afraid to speak their mind. Think about how useful these skills are to your life and business? They will stop you stagnating. They will allow you the freedom to try a variety of things, including jobs, and maybe start your own business. They allow you to think for yourself, so you can stimulate your mind and come up with your own solutions to problems, so you can make more decisions, and learn from the challenges of those decisions – kids don’t worry about making mistakes, they just get on and do stuff!

These are the strategies I want you to take on-board, I want you to be that kid that never says never, that always believes in fairy tales and magic – that the impossible can become possible. But where you will benefit the most, is the action taking, the further knowledge, resources and experiences, that are available to you as an adult – combined with the relentless, no fear attitude, and an abundance of energy from the Kid within you, that always wants to inspire and try new things and is not worried about making mistakes but who wants to explore life and make their own mark in the world!

Are you up for the challenge? How do you embrace your inner kid?

Write soon and stay quirky.

Hello From Disneyland Paris! For My 21st Mindset Birthday Celebration!

Something Quirky Is Going On In Exeter!


Paignton Zoo Rhino Statue

Something quirky is going on in Exeter! Around Exeter are different statues of rhinos advertising Paignton Zoo. A much more modern and novel way of marketing a business. It could also prove useful for writing inspiration. 

Being a quirkily vibrant girl, I particularly love the vibrant colours of this one!

Off To The Vets Again! 


My furry kids Snow and Chestnut
Snow (White) and Chestnut.

I love my Snow, she literally means the world to me and tomorrow she goes under anesthetic again. And she seems to be handling this news a lot better than me!

This morning I bathed her and Chestnut before work and you could see all the more, how much weight she has lost. Although her eyes and still bright and she is still strong inside and feisty – pushing past Chestnut at times and trying to climb out of the sink I bathed her in this morning. This is a recent picture of her before the most dramatic weight loss over this week. 

On Friday she was dropping some piggie mix from her mouth and coupled with the weight loss, I felt it was best to get her to see a vet that day. Chestnut always goes with her – good job, as Snow was diagnosed with mites aside from possibly her teeth being overgrown again and confirmed weight loss. She was 1kg on 31st May, now 8.08. But both have to have mite treatment and Chestnut has to be weighed for this too.

The vet could not see Snow’s teeth for the tongue being attached to her cheeks so tomorrow the head vet will anesthetise her to take a closer look at what is going on! I pray it is nothing worse and that Snow will be okay.

I am feeling sad now so going to say write soon and always follow your heart!

Love and hugs

When technology fails!


Exeter Cathedral!

Sometimes life doesn’t go according to plan because technology fails. I recorded a YouTube Video about a week ago and haven’t been able to upload it. My IPad had a software update and it no longer recognised when it was plugged into the Mac. The store I bought it from – where I work in my day job, reset my IPad, and all was good – or so I thought, but now I am having problems importing the video to my Mac, and when I tried to share my new 10 sec channel trailer from IMovie – it didn’t arrive in my YouTube Video Manager so I will have to keep on trying.

I  am currently working on two books, the Asexual Perspectives book and a brand new one that I haven’t revealed to anyone yet! – Suspense is good, right? Let’s just say it’s an autobiographical How-to, from one specific area of my life! That gives plenty of scope for books in other aras at a later date. My mission is to write a ton of non-fiction books to help others, predominantly using my own experiences, skills,  and knowledge, but sometimes, like in my Asexual Perspectives book, I will be interviewing people for it. I have interviewed over 40 asexuals from around the globe for this particular book and it will be told in their own words.

I also created a brand new channel ‘Inspiration Inspired’ it is called, and I have yet to upload the trailer for it, that took me 6 hours to create! I plan to create a motivational/inspirational video for it once a month, so please subscribe in advance to it and show your support, it would mean such a lot! I also plan on creating personal development courses in the future! Link

Until next time, stay quirky and write soon.

What Would It Be Like To Have A Carrot Cottage ?

Snow knows!

Welcome to the new look guinea pig cage and new Carrot Cottage for Snow and Chestnut.

If any of you have been keeping up with my posts, you will know that Snow had to have emergency surgery on her teeth about 3 weeks ago. She had stopped drinking and barely eating.

The vet found the one off condition – her tongue is attached to her cheeks!! And from now on she needs an operation on her teeth, 3 times a year, forever, because her teeth overgrow as a consequence of not being able to chew normally. Plus check-ups every two months to make sure she does not end up in a critical way again. I am going to be doing overtime at my day job to help pay for this, starting tomorrow – today now!! During promotional periods. The insurance company may pay up to a maximum of half this year and could exclude it next year, and it costs a lot. If you have read my reply to Ralph in the last post, you will know how much!

I changed her cage around and bought her and Chestnut this cottage made out of carrot and other lovely stuff, so it’s edible too – if she wants to try to grind her teeth down more, she can. She was just munching away on Apple.

Until next time, embrace your quirky and each others.

P.S. I have an awesome video coming up for you, it has taken me a while to get this one uploaded and I am still working on the thumbnail!!!

Love you

This is the life! Because I am worth it! Note my leather chair, table for my popcorn and drink!

I saw Goosebumps and Deadpool. The first was hilarious, and a dream or nightmare come true for writers. The second, I didn’t like. Because I don’t like nudity and the violence was too graphic for me. I still loved my International Celebrate Being Single Day Celebration. It was amazing.
