How to Protect and Develop Your Children at the Same Time

The Absolute Fear of Being a Good Parent I was told many things to except when I became a parent. No one mentions the absolute terror that comes with the job. Driving down the main road today after a day out with the little one. Walking up the middle of the road is a 3-year-old Nepalese girl. Yes, you read that right. Now, this road isn’t the main road, but it is a busy B road. We stopped the car, got out and retrieved the child, bringing her to the pavement. The first thing that interested me was the number of people who drove around her and didn’t stop. Not to mention the six people on the pavement stood there watching her wander up the road. What this says about society is a post for another time.

Why You Should Write.

Why have you chosen to write? What led you down the path to being a blogger and writer? Last week, I began pondering why I had chosen to write as my second career. My first career choice is as a Deputy Head Teacher for young people, excluded from school.  The first thing that strikes me is that writing is the extreme opposite of what I do every day.  Writing is a very solitary process.  In contrast, working in a school means I am surrounded by people and voices. Makes for some great material to use in my writing though. I can’t remember when exactly I got the idea I wanted to write a book. It seems to have been an ambition of mine for as long as I can remember. From early teens I wrote a journal, a practice I have continued throughout my life.  I have decided finally to take my writing seriously. Here are the reasons, you should start taking your writing seriously. 

An Abandoned Beauty – Short Story

Rose threw her legs out of the bed for the fifth time in one night. The baby wouldn’t sleep for more than 45 minutes. As soon as Rose drifted off she was woken again by the screams. Rose had never felt tiredness like it. There were times during the last couple of weeks where she has started hallucinating. It was only a bum change this time. Rose remembered how her mother had mocked her when she said she was using traditional nappies. She had risen her eyebrows and chuckled.

A Beginners Guide to Medium & Writing

I appreciate I talk in my writing a lot about Medium.  What is Medium and how can you use it in your writing. Medium is a platform where you can feature your writing for others to read.  It is also a social platform where you can meet like-minded people and genuinely support each other.  I started writing on Medium in March 2018 and since then my writing career has taken off. The thing that really annoys me is I can't remember how I found about Medium.  I started as a reader devouring all the content I could.  I then became brave and started publishing on there. So Here Is A Basic Guide To Medium For All Aspiring Writers.
