In which I publish a new ebook

I published a new ebook! It is (I think) the final in my small series of creative ramblings, published before I move onto some non-fiction projects. Called Creative Connections, it’s a bit of an eclectic mix, as it’s got a few left over pieces of prose, a load of poems, and a couple of styles…

Why don’t people comment on blogs? 

And in a break and slight tangent from recent blog posts, this one is about blogging, not babies…. I’ve been blogging for quite a few years now, and I find it interesting that people don’t comment on blog posts as much I’d like them to. I feel as if a blog post with no comments…

Why I love photography 

My last blog post was about why I love writing. Never one to be tied to just a single interest, I also love photography – this is why……. It helps me notice things. When I did my first photo challenge month back in 2013, I realised that taking one photo a day made me more…

Why I love writing

When I’m not on maternity leave, I work as a project director, managing communications projects and all the associated finances and resources. I like managing projects, but what I’m particularly drawn to is writing and photography. So it’s nice to indulge in both of those when I have time. Why do I love writing?  It…

My creative progress and current barriers

My plans were: Enter one photography competition – Maidenhead and Me (which is also an exhibition) – closing date September 2017 Write and publish an ebook about my creative projects – by May 2018 Continue to write down all my creative…

Blogging again?

It’s funny what drives me to write blog posts. Sometimes it’s inspiration, sometimes it’s annoyance about something, and sometimes it’s just having too much spare time on my hands. Today it’s the latter.  My first day of maternity leave, coming after a busy couple of weeks at work, finishing off reports and handing over projects…

An alphabet of photos

I started writing this post shortly after I finished my November photo challenge. And then things got busy and I didn’t have time to finish it. But finally I’ve had a bit of spare time to edit it and publish it…. So I did it, I completed my month of photos – at least according…

Penguin

Some of my favourite illustrators

I’m fortunate enough to have come into contact with a lot of amazing creative people through my participation in the 30 Day Challenge over the last few years. My creative outlet is photography, and my drawing skills are limited to sketching weird penguins, so I’m in awe of anyone who can actually draw! I thought…

Ravens at the Grand Canyon

What kind of photography inspires you?

There are two photography exhibitions that I like to visit every year to get inspired and learn more about photography. These are the National Wildlife Photographer of the Year and the Landscape Photographer of the Year. This year I also decided to visit a portrait photography exhibition as well, the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize…
