Walking the Path: The Next Natural Step

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

Just had my article/review published on HuffPost for Walking the Path – the follow-up course after Path of Love, both by Path Retreats.

It seems I am on a linking path with this community, and I welcome the journey, the work and the connection. These have been my favourite things to do this year, and by far the most beneficial personal development retreats/courses I have ever done!

Feel free to have a look at the article/review, and see what you think! 🙂

Much love 💜

Review of Walking the Path Retreat

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

Amazing Authors in August!

By | My Life on a Plate, White Petals, Writing Stuff

I was asked to do an interview with The Book Activist for Amazing Authors in August.

I have to say, I absolutely loved it! There’s no better interview than a juicy or/and fun interview! I really like it when interviewers do something a bit different and put their own twist on the interview and the kind of questions they ask . It makes the interview fun and interesting for me to participate in, and I’m sure it makes for better reading for the audience.

So, thank you to The Book Activist for inviting me to be one of their Amazing Authors in August, and here’s the interview link below:

My First Huffington Post Article!

By | My Life on a Plate, Writing Stuff

The time has come.
I have finally got myself a place in the Huffington Post family! I’m so pleased! Yaaay! 😀
I have to stop using so many exclamation marks, I know. I’m just so excited, though!
I won’t babble on about it for too long, but I will say that my articles will be written on a mix of different subjects – not just about writing. I’ll be writing about personal development, women’s issues, parenting, relationships, health – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual. I’ll be writing about lots of different things during my time with Huff Post, and I’m really looking forward to it all!

So, here’s my first official Huffington Post blog post. It’s titled, Working with your Editor. It’s about … erm … well, working with your editor. If you don’t know much about what an editor actually does during the writing and publishing process, then this article is a good place to start learning.

Enjoy! xx

Working with your Editor – Maria Grace – The Huffington Post.
