Today folks, I am immensely proud of myself. Not only have I made it to yet another birthday, but I have also managed to get my sorry ass to college after celebrating a friend's 40th last night - oh, and treating myself to a Jack Daniels at midnight.
And I am so glad I made the effort. Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce you to picmonkey, the online photo editing programme which is quick and easy to use - and completely FREE!
Let me illustrate. To the left you will see a lovely photo I took on Bonfire night (yep, still a big kid at heart) and below, my picmonkeyed version, which I created in about 2 minutes. HOW COOL IS THAT???!!!
So, what with firework displays, birthday parties and lots of other extra curricular activities, it's been a busy week. It started off with the Red magazine networking event Meet the Editors on Monday evening. Whilst it was interesting to hear how they all got to the top of their game, I have to admit I found the whole thing a little disappointing. At the end of the day, I know the theory - but when it comes to actually getting a break in the world of writing (and arting and crafting for that matter) it ain't that easy. But I also think it is time for me to stop faffing and start doing - and start doing in a more focused manner.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm off to get my life in order. Oh, and to treat myself to a big fat slice of birthday cake...
Here you will find my latest news, including what I have been up to and what I have been writing (and making). Hopefully you'll like what I have to say - and perhaps I will motivate you to get creative too...
