WHEN I first started this very blog back in 2012, I had no idea where it would take me. If indeed anywhere! I had no objectives or game plans, no goals to meet or things I ‘had to do’, just a real urge to write honestly about what it feels like – from my perspective- to be a woman in this world.
IT’S that time of the month again, when I try and share some wisdom! Yes folks, welcome to my agony aunt column, ‘problem’ number two. (If you missed it, here’s number one.)

It’s also how I make a living, so I like to think that when it comes to stringing a sentence or two together I know what I’m doing! ;-) Not everyone finds it easy though. It is, after all, a craft and to be honest, even the best writers are always looking at how they can improve and make their work
