Cesky Krumlov: My new writing location

Writing in Cesky Krumlov as the perfect location

My new writers retreat location: Cesky Krumlov, Czech Republic! I begin the second draft tomorrow and I’m very excited about it. I chose this location for several reasons: It’s beautiful, cheap, walkable, cool climate, has fast internet, and it’s full of tourists who I can communicate with as they pass through the hostel I’m living in. Every day I see a thousand amazing writing locations in this neat little town…it’s just perfect!

Follow Your Dreams Today

Why wait any longer? Follow your Dreams Now!

Why not follow your dreams? For the past five years I’ve doubted myself. I told myself I can’t write, I can’t read, and I had no idea how I would ever start or finish this book. The book began taking over my life. I chose to listen to those who doubted me rather than those who supported me. I battled hard to finish my first draft through waves of depression, anxiety, and a complete lack of self confidence. I wanted to give up over and over again but ploughed on through the tough times.
Now that I’ve finished my first draft – I can now sit back and see the book with clarity. I’m 30% happy with what I’ve written, but more importantly I’m proud of myself for charging through, not giving up, and ticking off the first box. I’m feeling optimistic about the final product and I got so many ideas for the next draft. I can see where I need to improve and what I need to do and I’m feeling much more confident and excited about the rest of the book.
I’m about to begin the second draft in the next week and let me tell you it’s going to be an enjoyable read! It’s funny, it’s scary, it’s exciting, it’s sad, it’s enthralling, it’s very very cheeky – and you’re going to love it! I’m going to take it slow and enjoy the process whilst weaving my humor and creative talents amongst the words. Sometimes in life there is no point running away from your fears – you have to tackle them head on. If someone tells you you can’t do something, then BELIEVE IN YOURSELF and use that energy to spur you on. If you have a dream – then go for it! Don’t dwell on it…and never give up. There is no such thing as failure if you give it a go!

Struggling With Writers Block

Writers block sucks!

Some-days . . . OK every day – I really struggle with the fact I’m writing a book and writers block is killing me. I’m no writer, I’ve just got good stories. I doubt myself, I feel alone, I hate reading, I can’t focus, I got no idea what I’m doing, I fear failure, I put too much stress and expectation on myself, I procrastinate at Guinness record rates, I run away from my problems, I drive myself crazy and I compare myself to everyone else around me.
Each day I want to throw it in and quit: I feel like there is no light at the end of the tunnel, it’s hard to see an end to it and this writers block is driving me crazy – but I’m one stubborn, stubborn bastard, and I will continue with the bloody book until it kills me! If I fail, I fail; If I succeed, I succeed…today I feel like being honest and venting my thoughts.
Life is not always peachy trying to write on a tropical island where everyone else is having a blast around me…it’s a daily struggle, and I’m struggling! Feeling down in the dumps with a low battery…

Screw you writers block.

I’m doing a writers retreat

Writers Retreat on a tropical island coming up!

I’m excited to announce that in February 2014 I’m moving to the Philippines and India for 12 months for a writers retreat. I plan to live on two tropical islands called Siargao and Boracay in the Philippines for 6 months then live on the beach in Goa, India for 6 months to hopefully compete the first few drafts of the book. I’d recently lost inspiration to work on the book due to work and life demands. I gathered a writers retreat on a tropical island will be the best way to focus on the mega task ahead without interruptions…I’m feeling very excited about it now.

Sometimes life is too short and you have to turn your dreams into a reality and enjoy each day along the way. Paradise Island writers retreat here I come.
