Zero to Hero (Blogging 101) Day Nineteen: Try a New Posting Style
Today’s assignment: build your storyteller’s toolbox by publishing a post in another format or a style you’ve never used before.


If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day, so I never have to live without you. 

Winnie The Pooh, A.A. Milne

I don’t subscribe to the belief that the perfect fairytale relationship exists but beneath a façade of stone, I secretly want to feel this and say it one day.

Holding Hands with the Ring of Fire

Zero to Hero (Blogging 101) Day Sixteen: Make a Prompt Personal
Today’s assignment: publish a post based on your own, personalized take on today’s Daily Prompt – Ring of Fire.
Do you love hot and spicy foods or do you avoid them for fear of what tomorrow might bring?


I do like a good meal, even more so if the necessary accompaniment is hot sauce. Watch me wipe away the beads of sweat because I’ve doused my quesadilla in tabasco, mixed sliced fresh chilli with my Pho, dipped my tofu dumplings in Sriracha and asked for extra jalapeno’s on my cheeseburger. You can have your bland sandwich while I work my way up the Scoville scale. I want the burn, need it activating my insides and clearing my sinus.

Side note: For those living in the UK, check out Fistful of Spicehttp://www.fistfulofspice.co.uk/ I’m partial to the Chipotle but the Caribbean Hot Sauce has the added fabulousness of mango.

 

 

Fistful of Spice

Who, Why, Where.

It’s been over six months since the last blog post. The original reason I started blogging was to document my adventures in Europe, predominantly London, where I’d been living for the last 18 months. The need to write soon subsided given I knew my Visa was up in a few months so rather than write about my experiences I just lived them, then locked them away in my memory.

Now that I’m back in Australia, my homeland, it’s been a struggle trying to settle back in and so the time seems fitting for blogging again. I considered keeping a journal  but I feel like putting pen to paper is more difficult and there is no ‘Undo’ button to hit. So, I’m hoping sharing my thoughts through here serves as a form of therapy, a place to share thoughts, ideas and opinions,  and possibly gives me the confidence to start writing more often.

And connecting with like-minded people – well that’d be pretty amazing.
