Diary of an Author

An update on where the book is up to and an overview of what I am doing if I am not writing/working! 

The story I tell myself

Sometimes I feel quite angry and other days I feel exposed because I chose to be vulnerable and own my feelings, but it perhaps didn’t land very well. While I can high five myself with ‘wow that was fucking courageous’, I also feel like I am naked, I feel so insecure and invalidated.

Connecting the unexpected

How long can you wait for the one you deserve? Dermot Kennedy, Outnumbered Who doesn’t love a good song lyric? I bloody love music. I think I have spoken about my love for music before, so I won’t bore you with my repetitive nature. However, I love those moments in...

Monogamy and Marriage: Is there only one way?

If monogamy was an academic subject I would get an A+ based upon my previous long term relationship. If scholarships were available for someone practicing romanticism and the idea of soulmates, I would win the highest level of financial support. Essentially I have...
