If you’re like me, you ask yourself this on a daily basis:

how can I continue living the creative life I need to live …….while still working in my full-time job?

That’s the clincher isn’t it?

Creativity changes the world. Every amazing, beautiful, useful thing on this planet was once a creative spark in someone’s head.

Which is great.
But wait, how do you sustain a creative practice when you have a job, kids, a house, pets, maybe a side hustle and who knows what else to juggle?

That’s why I made this blog in the first place. It focuses on 4 things:

  • Creativity: how do you get your creative fire going? And how do you keep it lit?
  • Productivity: how do you achieve more – and still have juice left over to keep being creative?
  • Writers & writing: how do you flourish as a writer when you work a fulltime job?
  • Your day job: how do you navigate today’s workplace and thrive in your niche?
