This week has been so busy that blogging has had to take a back seat. I’m trying to FINISH things. Ever had that problem of being a great starter but a slack finisher. I realise I have really fallen into that danger and it’s time to climb out of it!
I did a creative audit and found that I have about four projects that need only a few final touches, or a send off to publishers, or a final edit or review. There are another five that are well progressed but needing the final lap. I can’t believe how much writing and photographing has built up in the last four years. It seems the country has been a muse.
I plucked up the courage to format something properly and send it to a Literary Agent. Now I have to keep up the momentum and send the other manuscripts off, before I am too deeply into writing the next one. I may have to look to send stuff to a few agents, or publishers. I’ll content myself with researching it for a while.
I worked on putting together a community photo book to sell through Blurb, which has had all the material sitting there for months whilst I am busy with other things.
I am very excited to about to begin Story Cartel! I have been thinking of doing this for a while, and got myself organised and booked in. I love that I can do it from home.
The other thing this week was that it finished with a beautiful clear sunset. I have to be on the look out for them now as we have some clear evenings and are surrounded by some amazing spots to photograph.
It’s always good to be out in life, finding things to be inspired by. Sometimes my heart is a little too busy taking care of my family and my health. I have an ongoing skin condition psoarsis which likes to flare up every now and then.
It’s always a reminder to me to slow down, and go and drink in those sunsets and show extra love to my beloved ones.

Good luck with all your projects June. I will be fascinated to hear how you get on with the literary agent.
Yes, good luck, it is good to be out there and busy. The images are superb – what a beautiful place.
My eldest daughter has psoriasis too, so I know what the flare ups are like.
Thanks Gail and Suzanne.
I got past the query stage with the agent now sending sample 20 pages… and then let’s see what happens next…
It sounds like Life is wanting to balance through you and you are listening to where your energies need to go next. There is so much we want to create and share and so many ways to do this. One of the most important is with our families.
Yes, working on balance for sure. Thanks as always for your encouragment.
