Taking the bull by the horns

The last few days I had so many ideas about writing that have entered my head without invitation. There I am minding my own business when an idea just calls in! I am sure my brain must look like spaghetti junction at the moment, with stories and articles coming from every direction with no traffic control in place

Last week, I drove to work one morning with so many ideas that I wanted to explore. The minute I got in, I had to run to my desk like a mad woman and scribble it all down before I forgot it.

There was no way out. I would have to ask for a day off! At short notice! Which is not easy, but I got it! Today! And so today, I made use of very second I could.

* I emailed someone asking for an interview with view to a future article idea.
* I started the writing part of a non fiction book.
* I took the photographs for the non fiction book as mentioned above.
* I read a book for research for yet another book, despite my hens wanting to read it too! (see my other blog - inside the chicken coop for that one!)

I was so glad that I took the bull by the horns. Sometimes you just have to go with something if it feels right at the time and get it done. I only had one day and wanted to make the best of it. I hope some of the work I have put in will pay off but if not, I will do it all again!


  1. Good for you Di. Ideas are temperamental little beggars and hide away in a sulk if they're ignored. You did the right thing.
    Best of luck.

  2. Brilliant, so very pleased you are going from strength to strength. Carole xx
