I Love My Writing Because


I love my writing because it doesn’t lie to me, it doesn’t cheat on me. 

I love my writing because it gives as much as it takes.

I love my writing because it makes me feel happy, fulfilled, and like I’ve achieved something good, even great, in my life!

I love my writing because it makes fantasy a reality!

I love my writing because it brings me closer to myself.

I love my writing because it brings me joy, peace and happiness.

I love my writing because it brings out the best in me.

I love my writing because it makes fairytales a reality.

I would love to be married to my writing because I 100% love it; I know it is fullly committed to me, it brings out the best in me and insists I pay it lots of attention, more so than the housework I hate. It doesn’t moan or complain if the washing up is not done and doesn’t expect me to do it as it would rather spend quality time with me.

Me and my writing are 100% wrapped up in each other, 100% into each other and 100% love each other. One cannot exist and thrive without the other. We are wrapped up in an eternal bliss together, forever and always.

I love my writing because it’s a reflection of me and it’s a part of my soul forever.

I love my writing because it’s always been there for me and never lets me down. Through sad times, happy times, good times and bad times, it’s always been true to me.

I love my writing because it enables me to change lives and fulfil my dreams.

I love my writing because it loves me!
Always stay true to your quirky self and your writing, because it’s worth it and it values your worth in return!

Celebrating Amazon UK Promoting My Book For Me


This is a Writer’s/Author’s Dream come true. Today I am celebrating the fact that Amazon UK is promoting my book for me, not only in its third email to me, but also in the subject line and it’s top of its list. Thank you Amazon UK. http://amzn.to/1U4yP0q

I have learnt a lot about Kindle publishing since publishing my Break through The Barriers Of Redundancy book and had a strategy for what I was doing this time and it is really paying off. I write not just for sales, but because I love writing. I have kept this book low price because I want as many people as possible to benefit from it and get my name out into the world more as a Writer. I couldn’t be more happy. Sure, I barely get anything from this book after Amazon take about 65-70% of it, but this book is not about that for me. This book is the path to my future and proof that you can earn money from Kindle books and doing what you love – it’s now my job to get better and better at it! And you know I will, because it is my destiny to help others through the written and spoken word. Whenever you have a down moment, remember a big up will come along soon. Keep going and keep doing what you love, always.

When I write – I feel my whole soul is melted into me!


Hi everyone

Writer and Author Sandra Bellamy

When I write, I feel my whole soul is melted into me. I feel I am a personification of the word writer; and I am at absolute peace within myself. It’s like someone flicks a switch inside of me and I know this is how my life is always meant to be, for eternity.

I have been in my cave writing, editing, amending and adding to my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book for almost two weeks. I took 12 days off from my day job to get my book finished and uploaded to Amazon as an e-Book. I am pleased to say that I finished the book on Tuesday; except for the re-formatting for Kindle, which I am now in the process of doing in the evenings after my day job. My two days off from my day job next week, I am working in my teaching job for over half day on Monday and I have a new client for my self-employed Quirky Training business, teaching Facebook for business on Wednesday for part of the day. So more often than not, I work 7 days a week nowadays. That’s why I currently have less time to blog and to visit blogs, so apologies for that.

I love you all dearly. Never forget that. I appreciate your commments and likes, and I appreciate you.

My book has been at least two and a half years in the making and so I am going to be extastic once it’s published, and it should help a ton of people in the process.

My Quirky Training business can be found at Quirky Training. It’s part of my education hub Quirky Academy offering. You can view it here: Quirky Academy. I teach blogging, Facebook and Twitter for business or pleasure. My number is 07932 768970 if you know anyone who may benefit from my training now, or in the future.

My main focus for these next couple of evenings, is trying to finish the re-formatting of my book to upload to Amazon. However long it takes, I won’t stop until I am a published by author.

Stay quirky and write soon
