How writing a book will really help you

Shattered Dreams by Annika Spalding (no longer available) When I wrote my first book, I had no thoughts about how it might help me; I just wanted to write a book. I had no idea about what might or could happen I pressed publish, and I certainly didn't expect everything that came after. Connecting with people every day is easy because social media, and I love interacting with my online audience. More recently I've been speaking with aspiring or established business owners who are in the process of putting their words onto paper, and the conversations we have are…

The healing journey: what it means to heal

I feel like I've spent most of 2018 with fear in my mouth. Negativity invading my language, anxiety intruding on my thoughts, and fear interrupting my affirmations. I'm a writer, yes, published a few books, yes, studied a writing degree, yes, consulted with various creatives on content creation and personal branding, yes, good at this stuff, ABSOLUTELY, so why am I holding back? Creativity used to pour out of me. I used to feel so inspired, I'd stay up until dawn, writing books, stories and poetry. When I was in touch with myself and my creativity, my writing became my…
