Your Greatest asset in life is you ...
Trouble with life is that we all think it’s free. Life is balance between the energy of giving and receiving Writing is an art that requires and life time of commitment to your readers. When I write fiction I get to explore the world from another point of view. Yoga doesn’t offer a quick fix - it’s fosters a change in lifestyle. Yoga gets us on our feet and establish a good foundation in oneself.
Year 2020 started with optimism in the air. Yet, no one could have predicted the course for the rest of the year when COVID-19 struck. The pandemic force changes no powerful leader ever have invoked on any nation. Life without socialising.
The year started full of hope and optimism. I enjoyed a day out at the natural history museum with my son and daughter.
This was a month of storms. This was my last flight to the UK and I was greeted with the COVID notice on my return.
Spring just around the corner. Swallows had arrived. My 30 stories in 30 days short story book challenge.
My 30 short stories in 30 days challenge completed. An amazing journey. The perfect tonic for the pandemic.
Fresh home grown strawberries and rhubarb. Young swallows growing by the minute in the barn. Cacti outside.
Young swallow spilling out of their nest. My 25-day press up challenge (Thanks to my son). Staycation in the garden.
Escapation: From the deserted breakfast bar on the ferry to the magic of the pyrénées. Climbing the Cagire Life wearing facing mask. Nature creating a smiley.
1st tour de France. Enjoying freedom in the mountains and enjoying local brews. Yoga with a difference.
A selection of cakes for my 59th birthday was indeed a treat in this COVID dominated year. Late cacti bloom and natures autumn displays.
The varying colours of November. The countdown to the #365in2021 challenge is well under way. Lessons learned presentation.
Back in April 2020, I embarked on a wiritng challenge. The challenge was to write 30 short stories in 30 days. Each story was based on a single randomly chosen word selected by people from the social media channels. The book will be available as a FREE PDF document. The paid paperback version of the book will be available on Amazon or you can pe-order a personalised copy direct from me. Pre-Order your copy today
The chaos of the pandemic caused much pain and misery around the world. In April 2020, I wrote 30 short stories in 30 days. No mean feat for any accomplished author! In 2021 I intend to write 365 short stories in a year. That is, one story for every day of the year. I have opened a reading room on FB to share a selection of the stories (as I go) from the challenge.

The writing part of this challenge is a huge undertalking in itself. The cost of publication will be a quite different challenge. So, I set up a "Buy me a Coffee" campaign to help raise funds to help with the publication of the planned 12 books. #buymeacoffee #365in2021
Writing is great therapy. Fiction frees our cluttered minds to see what is possible. Writing short stories is a great way to relax and unwind, escape the rigours or master the art of writing. Writer's Labs is ideal for anyone who would like to learn some interesting techniques for writing short stories. #Writerslabs #projectlemonzest
My challenge is to write 365 short stories in 2021. To add some spice to my challenge I would like to write each story to be based around a single randomly chosen word. Each word provided by people across all the social media channels. Insane? Maybe. Do you have an interesting word for me to write a story about?
