A woman wearing black-rimmed glasses and an orange scarf sits at a table behind an open laptop computer. There is a digital camera on the table and a sign with social media icons and the text 'follow us'. The woman is looking out and smiling.

A writer. Not an author

Two things happened today which crystallized something for me. They may seem unrelated, but they mark a moment of deep satisfaction in my writing journey and inspired me to own my truth.

I could have just described the view. But surely what we see is shaped by perspective? I added some context to give the imagery more meaning.

A better bio

An article appeared recently addressing the question ‘What should I include in my personal bio?’. I struggled for days with the ‘About’ page on my website and once took more time to write a 50-word bio than the 1200-word story attached to it.

Convicted of spreading false news and aiding the banned Muslim Brotherhood, Greste was holed-up in a room 4m by 5m with two colleagues waiting to appeal his seven-year sentence. Back in Australia, this mother-of three on the creaky side…

I want a job not a hobby

I enjoyed a three-course meal and some stellar plonk recently with a bunch of professionals from life’s comfortable class; people who’ve all tasted the business lounge and five stars and platinum reserve seating. This was our third shindig together in as many years and because we only meet annually the event feels like a punctuation…
