HOW I USED HOBBIES TO INCREASE MY JOB SATISFACTION

When I started The Boring Job Project, I made a list of all the hobbies I wanted to try. Then, I went a step further and searched the internet for lists of hobbies and added some more that I might be interested in. I ended up with quite a long list, but I was luckyContinue reading “HOW I USED HOBBIES TO INCREASE MY JOB SATISFACTION”

Truth Time: Does Your Job Bore You?

I want to see a show of hands: who finds their job boring? I wouldn’t be surprised if no one raised their hand. Not in real life, anyway.

Why I’m participating in NaNoWriMo

We haven’t finished NaNoWriMo yet, and I don’t want to be cocky, but I’m planning to hit the 50,000 word count. Of course I am; everyone who signs up to write a novel in November is planning to finish, aren’t they? But we’re halfway through the month and I am struggling – big time! CommittingContinue reading “Why I’m participating in NaNoWriMo”

How I’m Prepping For NaNoWriMo

I’m a NaNo virgin and to say that I’m a bit nervous about the whole thing is a complete understatement. For years, I’ve watched October and November come and go, telling myself that I should totally partake in NaNoWriMo (or National Novel Writing Month) and then watching the start of November pass me by, resigningContinue reading “How I’m Prepping For NaNoWriMo”

Sneak Peek!

That seems impossible, but trust me, the sleepless nights that have nothing to do with my baby (nearly toddler!) are proof that it can happen. The reason for this emulsion of feelings is that I’ll be self-publishing my bookContinue reading “Sneak Peek!”
