How To Overcome Writers Block.



 I decided sitting here on this very grey Tuesday afternoon that  I could  have sworn that I just heard thunder, but it could be a helicopter passing over I'm not to sure.  Yes I have my dear readers a little bit of writers block, this is the fist time since I started this blog this has happened to me, I have lots of idea's in my head, but getting them down  into a post is another story  I carry around with me a little book and pen and when any idea's come into my head as fast as I can I write them down, and refer back in the future  I have written this blog title three times and deleted it and started again with a different subject, has this ever happened to you my dear one's, when you just can't settle on the one idea, because you have to many little one's in your head, how did you over come it? I find when I start writing it just flows and I don't get stuck, when I start I start and I seem to get to the end.
     I really enjoy writing I always have done since I was little, I always had my head in a book or a pen in my hand, my Mother had to prize me away to come and set the dinner table it used to drive her mad. I have  in the past written a screen play in my early twenty's it was a pilot episode of a comedy that I had submitted to TV  production company who wanted to meet me, but that was years ago and another story. I also wrote song lyrics for a few amateur band's, and edited a fanzine for a very well known band who are no longer together.  I always worry about what people think of my blog and if I am writing about subjects people want to hear  about I have had some great feed back but still those insecurities  pop my head up from time to time.  I do write a little about my personal life now and again, I just hope it doesn't bore people. So I decided to write my five tips on how I  combat writers block when you have it.

1  I  power walk most days and I do it in the fresh air that's when I find my blog post Idea's come into my head as soon as I get home out comes my little book and orange pen and I write them down.

2   Just sit there I find I open my lap top and put my hands on the keys I start to write, thing's usually start flowing and then I can't stop.

3 Try to find a quite space with no one else talking. Sometimes I do put music on in the background. But other's talking is terrible for me, my head gets jumbled

4 Try not to write if you are tired you might come out with something you never meant to write in the first  place. And you may rush your post and it will read like it's rushed.

5 Always and I mean always re read what you have written I do it out loud it sounds so much clearer if you do that.

International Women's Day. Who Is Your Inspirational Women.

This is Anna, my Grandmother, and I have chosen her as my Inspirational women for International Women's day 2019.    Anna, my Grandmother was born in April 1907 on the East Coast of Italy, in another time, and another place, long before I was even thought of.  I have chosen my Grandmother today  because she was a strong confident women who had a hard life with no money no decent home and sometimes no shoes on her feet as she used to tell me.  My Grandmother got married at 18 in Pink and had four daughter's the youngest of whom was my own Mother.  My Grandfather was a farmer/soldier and when the second world war broke out my Grandfather was in the war, my Nan as I always called her, was on her own in war torn Italy with four daughter ages ranging from 13 downwards to 6 years old,  if we think of poverty in our towns and cities today according to my Nan's  standards they where horrendously poor only eating what they could grow and what they could kill.  During the war for…

Youtube's Lucy Wyndham-Read, My New Online Personal Trainer.

I have started a new fitness routine, I have always loved keeping fit since my late twenty's till today, it's funny that when I was at school I hated sports or games as we call it here in the UK, I was always the last or second to last in a race and was never picked for any team I did however excel at Volley Ball (no idea why) and I was good at dance, but of course my school abandoned the volley ball team. at age thirteen, but I did do dance lessons from the age of seven till sixteen, I had  dreams of being a dancer on Top of the Pops, (yeah right).
 From about the age of 27 I started to workout to keep fit DVD's and they worked they really did, and I actually enjoyed it, I became pretty fit and had a nice little figure too,  but alas time has gone on and the years have gone by and by the time I was 35 I started to realize I couldn't do the DVD's that I was doing a few years back and was struggling to do any more that 20 mins each time, and eventually  I started …

Why I Hate Love Island.

I know this will not be  popular  with a lot of the  British public, but I hate ITV1's  Love Island, there I have said it. Am I the only one?  I feel on a daily basis the only one.   Last Summer this show, about lovely young men and women on an holiday island  was on and all my  female friends and some of my  family were watching it, they were fascinated, next to the photocopier they were fascinated, going out for drinks with my girlfriends all I could hear was he fancies her she snogged him, so I felt like an absolute freak when I suddenly shouted to out "I have never seen it", all heads turned and looked at me in amazement, eyes wide and mouths open, one or two heads shaking in amazement, "what" one particular friend   cried out "never?".  They were horrified I felt like I wanted the ground to swallow me up whole.
   So I must confess that night I went home put on Youtube typed in Love Island and there were lots of lots of older clips I saw one tha…
