Hello, my name is Peggy. I am a writer.

The other morning I woke up one hour earlier than I needed to. For those that know me, this is a startling revelation. I am a true bedhead, I don’t ever wake up before I need to. Well at least I didn't before I found something to jump out of bed early for. 

After I woke up I grabbed my laptop, plonked myself on the lounge and just started typing. An hour passed and I realised I had written some 1500 words. It was the perfect start to my day. It is moments like this I realise writing is my true passion. It is the one art form that puts a real spring in my step. I smile to myself when I think of things to write and when I finish writing I am full of excitement. Ideas are abundant and my mind has been opened up to inspiration in other forms as a result of the kick-start to my artistic side.

As some of you may be aware I am currently drafting my very first book. An eBook. I have always dreamt of writing a book and now that I am full of ideas and the desire to write I am going for it. An eBook seems like the perfect place to start. It won't cost much, I will have freedom to be creative, and hopefully someone, just someone, might even want to read it. I also have an idea for a paperback based on another passion of mine, to be commenced further down the track. Strangely enough, although this thought feels somewhat scary, it feels amazing and exciting and, amazingly exciting!

I have always been a dreamer. I have always believed in having dreams. I wondered in my earliest blogging days if I was possibly dreaming about this whole writing thing. I wanted to call myself a writer, but I was wondering if since I am not a published writer can I in fact still call myself a writer. Recently while reading about authentic self I realised that your true self defines who you really are.

I am a writer. 

What inspires you? What really gets your heart racing and makes your insides burst with excitement? What is your one true passion? Do you dare to dream?

  1. That's fantastic, Peggy.
    I'm still awaiting definition - parenting, teaching, running, decorating - they all put that fire in my belly.

  2. I call myself a writer as well as I just love to write. Looking forward to your ebook. I just finished my first one and am a little excited about sharing it and a little scared as well! N x

  3. That's brilliant Shar, it's so nice to feel true passion for something. Parenting is definitely my passion too. I was born to be my child's parent (of course), it is the one thing I love to do and my life before him paled in comparison in terms of love and a sense of being. :)

  4. Naomi you write so beautifully. I look forward to reading your eBook. I am flying blindly at the moment in terms of format and length etc but the writing part comes easily. I hope I don't bore my readers! That is probably what scares me the most. Exciting times though!

    Enjoy, be sure to let us know when your eBook is published. :) xo

  5. Yes you are Peggy! A writer indeed... and I bet it feels as wonderful as you describe it to be :o) xo

  6. It does feel wonderful Julie. I am sure you can relate. I get a similar buzz when I take photos, as I am sure you do too. :) xo

  7. Yay you hun - I am very proud of you. I love home decorating - that gets my belly going ;) Oh and does shopping count? :) xx

  8. Thank you lovely. Home decorating definitely gets the artistic side moving. And shopping, need you ask!? (I have recently realised a love for online shopping, YIKES!) xo


I would REALLY love to hear your pretty thoughts. Since you're already here, why not leave me a comment?

Thank you for reading.
