This online world is often our highlight reel, rather than our behind the scene reality.
How are you going with comparison and competition? #theboardroomretreat

People follow people. That's what I discovered (well, remembered) at the Perth Writer's Week when I found myself going to all the talks by humorous Aussie writer Graeme Simsion (best known for his hit novel 'The Rosie Project'). .
Sometimes aspiring authors ask me: "What book will sell?", hoping there is a magic formula for picking a topic to guarantee their success. .
The answer is: any book topic can sell if it's written with style and passion (and marketed properly). .
The most important thing for an author to focus on is developing their writing voice...because that's what causes people to follow you. .
For me, Graeme Simsion has a really fun and compelling writing voice, and because of that I'd probably buy any book he writes, regardless of the topic. I follow him rather than the content of his books. .
This is why your best investment toward writing a book that sells well is to spend time writing to develop your voice...even if you don't have a book idea yet!
P.S. I'm enjoying the festival talks from a beanbag...comfort and creativity can go together!

Whilst on air on radio yesterday this little book landed on my desk. There was something about its title that filled me with courage.
The writers life sounds so fancy. But my friends it ain’t fancy in anyway. It’s showing up to a blank page and fighting a battle of clarity.
It’s a dance with focus and making friends with our surprising and fleeting surety.
It’s believing in yourself one day and being thrown by a story the next.
It’s a marathon internally before even one word is typed on a page. Then suddenly a flood of inspiration pours through light soaked curtains and you need to run!

@kazziej7 It’s been a big week and you made me smile so deep by lending me this.

Listening to the news yesterday I heard the latest statistics from the recent naplan results in Australia.
Overall our writing and comprehension skills of primary aged children are drastically waning.
Whether you think naplan is helpful or not, culturally we do know that screens, keyboards and stylists are replacing pens and paper.
I love watching my children discover new things with technology, but not at the demise of the beauty of ink.
I personally have had to take myself back to paper and to begin to write physically again.
Each time we write with a pen and paper, the connection between our heart and clarity grows.
When was the last time you sought perspective for your current situation by journalling?
When was the last time you had a personal retreat where you explored your current circumstances through writing?
I believe that writing connects your heart with clarity.
I think that space creates perspective for new opportunities to surface in our everyday.
I know that every time I surrender to the pain of silence and reflection I am always so grateful on the other side.

When do you write?

I’m off to the city this morning to do two back to back workshops for the city of Belmont and the Small Businesses Association in social media.
But I’m still thinking about Sunday morning and the amazing women’s eyes that I could see in the crowd and their stories that were so palpable.
What do you see?
What are you holding?
And what do you need to release?
