Festive video reading of my first chapter

Today I am sharing a very special festive reading of the first chapter of my novel for children, The Mystery of Insch Brae House, which I was honoured to record in support of the very first Twelve Days of Christmas reading initiative run by The Station Master’s House in Birkdale, England.

The hub’s objective is to encourage easy access to reading materials for all ages. Reach out if you would like to hear more.

My short mindfulness ritual for creatives

I don’t know about you, but time is just disappearing as we hurtle towards Christmas. For someone who likes to retain a degree of control over my days, this feels horrible!

If you are a creative who is also having to turn your hand to marketing – my sympathies, I find it super tough to take my artistic head off and put the business head on!

If you are a creative who is also having to turn your hand to marketing – my sympathies, I find it super tough to take my artistic head off and put the business head on!

To help you, I have put together a video of my own short daily mindful practice and shared it below. You need not be a creative to join in, and neither do you need any prior meditation or mindfulness experience.

All you need is ten minutes and a chair. I have found that regular practice of this ritual has helped me to ground myself and support my focus in writing and also when I need to put my business head on.

I hope that it leaves you feeling energised and grounded whatever your to-do list is today.
