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.
The hack Instagram doesn’t tell you about. I am constantly looking at ways of increasing my reads, from external sources. This has become even more essential in the last month. I have written many posts on social media marketing, I will link these below. Instagram, for many writers, remains the platform writers do the least marketing on. When it should be in your top three. However, it is not always easy to embed links on Instagram.
Writing about sex is not a sin. As a writer, it is important to diversify your writing to grow and reach more readers. I have tried many different genres. Last year I wrote a history piece about the Titanic. It was curated in History and has received a regular flow of readers. With this in mind, last month I decided to diversify my writing again, into erotic fiction. I have written fiction, but have never written erotic fiction.
How you save all your best ideas to produce content for months. With an increase in publishing this month my first concern was would I run out of ideas. I knew I had to get better at capturing idea’s as they come into my head. Throughout the day you can create many opportunities for post ideas. Although, there are advantages to letting this happen organically. Whether it’s whilst you are watching TV or washing up you need to have a way to capture the ideas before they leave your head. This is never more important than when you settle down for bed. I have lost count of how many excellent ideas I had when I was drifting off to sleep, to forget them the next day.
For me, home is a person, not a place. My circuits have blown I know it’s self-imposed And all I have shared, and all I have loved Is all I’ll ever own But something has changed I feel so alive My life just blew up, I’d give it all up I’ll depressurize Oh, oh, oh, ten … Continue reading Home Is Where The Heart Is
Do you have enough drama in your life to write? Now before I start this post a disclaimer I love personal interest stories. I devour them with enthusiasm on Medium. So this post is not meant as a dig to them in any form. However, as I read these I wonder if I have enough drama in my life to write them. I came from a normal background. My parents treated me with respect and gave me a wonderful childhood. I have lived a drama-free life. Why write personal aspects in your writing?
