Please , PLEASE read and comment , I need your help !

Ok so no this is not a shameless self promotion exercise I promise ! I apologize to all my mates in the blogosphere for my absence over the summer months . I have slowly lost my mind and motivation in my last trimester of pregnancy which has coincided with the biggest build up the Top End has had in years. This is where I need your help. I am trying to write a book , based on my blog and my cross over from the plastic world of adult entertainment to my tranquil life in the bush. However my baby brain is stopping me from producing anything worth writing ( also the reason I have been a slack blogger ! ). So if all the people who have read / do read my blog could let me know in the comments section what they would want to read about or the posts I have written which they liked the best that would go a long way to getting me started with this project ! And I promise to send anyone who comments a copy when I’m done ( not sure if that’s an incentive or a deterrent …….Β  πŸ˜‰ ) Thank you in advance !!!! Xx Kel

  1. Hey Kel, it’s really hard. I think the biggest obsticle I have to writing is knowing I am going to have to stop at a certain time, I don’t like to have restrictions on it like that. Once you give your self some time and are not pre-empting some other task after it, then it will come . just sit down and start, it’ll take you xx Also just be yourself, you’re funny! x

    • Thanks Erin πŸ™‚
      I have so much time just no motivation .. or maybe Im just a bit brain dead because of the heat and the baby .. but your right , once I get started I will hopefully be fine , just need a bit of inspiration. I know this sounds horrible , but once I’m allowed a couple of cheeky vodkas I find writing to be no problem at all .. maybe that’s why I have been so absent while Ive been preggers ! ( Also explains why so many artists and writers are alcoholics … hmmmmmm ) Will call you soon , miss you ! Xxx

      • Hahaha I miss you too! and I love Vodka! I can’t write and drink though, well I can, but nothing worth reading haha xx

  2. Don’t overthink it too much. For those of us who have never visited but love the sound of the outback and bush, all your little anecdotes are fun and interesting. I think anything that is *your* firsthand experience and little things that you found strange would ring true and be better than news that happened to other people/animals!

    I’ve also started watching Outback Truckers, a great show, always thought it must be amazing to drive those road trains.

    • Thanks heaps for the advice , I am thinking to expand my posts that seem to be popular and go from there .. might not ‘flow’ but I’m not really telling a story , more a collection of them .. thanks again for the comment , appreciate your help πŸ™‚

  3. Oh, Kel, relax and take it easy, my friend. Just be who you are– in this moment, with baby so soon to come! I love your writing. I love your blog. But you are getting ready to birth something really big–big in your belly at the moment. Perhaps, your book will emerge with this birth. Perhaps, it’s about the marrying of who you are with who you’re becoming. It’s yet emerging. Peace and blessings to you, my friend. Sorry to have been so absent recently. We are getting ready to move to Ecuador, which has been taking up all of my time. But I’m so glad not to have missed this post. Hugs and love to you, my dear!

    • I’m glad you saw this Kathy πŸ™‚ As someone who is writing their own book I appreciate any advice re writing ! πŸ™‚ I think after the baby comes I will be a bit flat out but hoping to get into a routine where I force my self to write something , anything for an hr a day , even if I dont use it it cant hurt to ‘practice’ πŸ™‚ .. I saw you are moving again , hope its not too hectic for you ! I have been absent myself anyway – moving , divorce , childbirth and death are all a tad distracting I reckon πŸ˜‰
      Thank you for taking the time to help me , I shall hopefully ‘see’ more of you soon ! Love Kel Xx

  4. Have you ever read “don’t tell my mum I work on the rigs, she thinks I’m a piano player in a who’re house”?

    It’s about an oil trigger and the highlights in his career. Funny as fuck.

    f you haven’t yet, read it. It may inspire you to write about your career highlights.

    • Sorry it took me so long to reply ! all Darwin hospital’s fault , holding me for no reason ( Ill fill u in on the other blog πŸ˜‰ ) Great idea , I have seen you mention those books on your blog and have been meaning to grab the first one and have a read – I have also been reading Fiona O’Loughlin since she is a country gal she is a bit of inspiration … After the Gumnut arrives and I have a routine I might be more creative again so hopefully things just flow ! πŸ™‚ Thanks for the tip I appreciate all the help I can get ! x

    HI KEL As an author my self (pre- teen fiction) I know how hard it can be. My advice is not to push it. Talk over your ideas and when the time is right it will flow. If you need help with how to construct stories I would be happy to sit down with you an have a chat hope this helps, good luck

    • Hey John
