When I don’t feel like a writer. A guest post for The Story Unfolding.

IMG_0142I feel like I need to start this post with the biggest apology. I feel like I’ve been neglecting this space for quite a while and I have no excuse really.

I have been busy. But you’re never too busy for the the thing you love are you? Let me assure you that while I’ve been away I’ve been plotting about what’s to come in this space and it’s good stuff. Honestly.

I’ll link you up to this guest post today and then in a couple of weeks I’ll dive in with the stuff I’ve been planning. I hope you won’t be disappointed.

You can only do you best. A guest post for Abby Norman.

Thank you so much for reading it really does mean the world to me. I tweet and I’m pretty entertaining.
