Truly, madly, deeply

Jul 15, 2009 | The Art of...., Writing, Pen names | 0 comments

There’s something comforting about pidgeonholes.  For a start you know where you’re supposed to be.  And in a world that likes to spend it’s time categorising and deciding where we belong, knowing where you *are*, especially as a writer, is golden.

It means you can decide where to market yourself.  Know where to spend your time promoting.  So, alongside the discussion about how I set my carreer back up, and put MYSELF back in the driving seat, how I handle pen names ‘etc’, I’m also going to talk about the important things, like marketing, and promotions, and self editing, and idea gathering, and workload management.

In fact, WorkBacktoNow is going to be YOUR goto blog for information.    See ya soon!

P is for Psychosis #realmentalhealth #mondayblogs #nomorestigma

This is one of my harder blog posts to write, because though I talk – a lot – about the impact my mental health has on my day to day life, and has done for a while, I’m pretty sure that this is the bit no one really understands, causes the most…misunderstanding and I hope, because I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, they can’t relate to. If you didn’t know that psychosis was a feature of my mental health diagnosis, or didn’t understand if you’d heard it mentioned before now, please…don’t start changing your opinion of me. That’s the biggest reason those of us with serious mental health issues aren’t as open as society needs. Because we lose people.
