My brain is way ahead of the rest of me

I’m a big fan of my brain. Honestly, there’s very little I’d be able to do without it. I’d be struggling to get up in the morning. I’d have great difficulty tying my shoelaces. I suspect many more significant tasks, such as eating and breathing, would be much more challenging without the contribution of my brain.

Working long and hard to be an overnight success

I’ve always been envious of people who are overnight successes.

You know the ones. One day, no one knows who they are. They’re a nothing, a nobody. They could walk through the streets and never get recognised. Their lives are as plain and dull as the rest of us.

Start from a theme – who knows where you’ll end up

In my general perusal of the online writing world, I’ve seen a few posts and articles relating to the issue of how to get started as a writer.

It’s a perennial question. One of the biggies when it comes to writing. Just how do you get started? What is the key to commencing a major piece of writing? How do you go from a blank page to something that may eventually turn into a novel?

If we all have a story inside us, why do I have so many?

You’ve heard the old cliche before – we all have a story within us.

I suppose it’s more of a metaphor than anything else. The idea that everybody’s life journey is like a story. And like any story, it’s definitely worth telling.

I try to travel light

I suppose we’re all travellers in some way. We’re all on a journey through life. The starting point was the moment of our birth and the end point is – well I’m not sure I want to talk about that now.

As we continue on that journey, we all have the baggage we carry along with us. We pick it up as we go – the various negative events and influences that mould and shape us, affecting and inhibiting our attitudes and approaches to life. At the start, there isn’t too much – after all, how much weight is a baby supposed to carry. But as we get moving, we all start to accumulate.
