Path of Love : Boot Camp for the Soul!

By | My Life on a Plate, Writing Stuff

In June this year, I was given the opportunity to attend the Path of Love retreat in Buckland Hall, Brecon.

Path of Love is a global seven-day intensive personal development retreat, and is famous worldwide for its therapeutic and transformational process.

I was nervous about going, but boy am I glad I did!

Here’s the link to my third HuffPost piece – Path of Love: Boot Camp for the Soul!

Hope you enjoy! 🙂

With love,

Typing Blanks

By | My Life on a Plate, Uncategorized, Writing Stuff

For a while now, I’ve had some trouble accessing my creative inspiration. I’ve managed to write a couple of articles, but when it comes to writing stories, I’ve been suffering from the dreaded disease that all writers are afraid of: Writer’s Block.

Yes, friends. I’m typing blanks.

The honest truth is that after suffering with some health problems, it’s not just my body that’s been affected. My mind has been affected, my heart has been affected, my mood has been affected, and my creativity has been affected, too. It’s been a real bitch of a few months, and I’m having treatment for both the physical and emotional effects of my health issues, so I’ll get there. In the meantime, though, I’ve decided to take a little break from writing because I don’t want to force the writing process. If I’m driven by pressure, instead of pleasure, then quite frankly, I’m screwed. I can’t write well, if my body and mind isn’t well. I can’t write well, if pressure is the reason I’m writing. I write because I love it. My love of writing has to be my primary driving force, otherwise what’s the point?

So, in the spirit of being kind to myself, I will be taking a little break from writing. Just for a few months. I’m going to snuggle up, rest, live gently and get well. Once I feel well enough to write again – however long that takes – then I will be back with a new HuffPost article and hopefully a new boost of energy!

Wish me luck!

With love,

Maria

Firefly YA Panel

By | My Life on a Plate, White Petals

I really enjoyed the Firefly Press Day at Waterstones Cardiff.
It was so nice to be on the YA panel with such great authors! The kids seemed to love the children’s authors, and the YA panel got a full house of readers in the audience.
Thanks to everyone for making it such a good day! 🙌😀💜
