When did you realise you were a writer? This is a question many of us will ponder. What makes a writer? Am I a writer? The answer is simple, if you write then you are a writer. This can be writing in a journal, for your positive wellbeing or publishing twenty novels. If you sit down and write consistently, you are a writer. Consistently being the important word. You can’t sit down once and write a letter and consider yourself a writer. You need to write regularly. Whether this is once a week or even daily. To be a writer you need to practice your craft.
Step by step how to increase your productivity and increase your income. Ask any of the successful writers on Medium how to gain decent income, they all same the same, publish more. Over the last couple of months, I have been publishing twice a day and my income has increased. However, to reach the level of income where you can support yourself, you need to look at publishing 3–4 times a day. Not easy when you work full-time and have a family. So how do you reach this publishing rate and still have time to sleep? Since studying the big publishers I have come across a foolproof plan, which I will share with you.

For many weeks I have been struggling with a poem, about my gran. The most amazing woman I know. Unfortunately, she is now a shell of the woman she was. Dementia has eaten everything that was her, away. Not that I want this to be a sad account, of one of the most amazing women I know. During writing the poem, I realised how amazing she was, I have so many stories to tell. Then Publishous posted this amazing prompt and it was written in the stars. Now was the time to tell the story of Stella Round a pioneer of her time.
Sometimes one tiny little comment can be the last straw for someone and we don’t think about this enough. Do you ever stop and think about what your reactions are doing to other people? We have all seen comments on Facebook or Medium and wanted to fire off an angry response. Do you ever consider if … Continue reading Life is Tough — Kindness Costs Nothing
Being sexy is about attitude, not body type — Amisha Patel My best friend is beautiful. Not this new modern plaster the makeup on beautiful, classic 1950’s beautiful. She looks good with or without makeup. When we go out together, people stop and look. She sees none of this. Brought up in a world obsessed with size 0 and airbrushed photos. She fights a battle between herself and the mirror every day. In a survey of men, her figure was described as ideal. Yet she believes she is overweight. I have heard her on more than one occasion describe herself as disgusting. As women, we are the most critical of other women. This constant criticism leads to anxiety. Anyone who looks attractive is often criticised. Why other women do not support each other more, is beyond my comprehension.
Facebook admins have a responsibility to monitor groups not just post threads. Today I received such a horrendous comment on one of my Facebook Groups, it stuck with me for the day. I reported it to the group admin and as I write this they have done nothing about it. As an admin of several groups myself, I hold a higher responsibility than posting threads and letting them run. As an admin for groups which have 800+ people. I need to support and value every one of them.
