WordPress just sent me a screaming message, ‘You haven’t written anything yet!’ (Their exclamation mark btw.)
I’m going to ignore that and write anyway…
A quick blog post on a brisk winter’s morning, dear reader.
I’ve been creating an eCourse of late.
Dum de dum.
I’ve created several eCourses in my time. But this one…
It’s taken bloody ages!
Who would have thought the history of the patriarchy, a discussion of the root metaphor of the cosmos and some thoughts on the annihilation of the Feminine Principle would require time??
Somehow, with enormous focus, determination and countless packets of gingernuts, I think I’ve managed to distill 5000 years of knowledge into about thirty Canva slides.
But it took a while.
For weeks (and weeks) I couldn’t see the wood for the trees.
In the end, I pulled back and asked myself some basic questions. The sorts of questions I was asking myself several years ago when I first tripped into the realm of the Goddess:
What is the Divine Feminine?
What do we mean when we say the Goddess is rising?
What is the history of the patriarchy and how did it get such a stranglehold on spirituality?
What is dualistic thinking and what do we mean by the Feminine/Masculine principle?
It was good to get clear. It gave me direction and purpose.
It also helped me finish.
I bloody LOVE finishing.
Love, love, love.
Finishing gives me the courage and energy to start something new.
That’s the reward for finishing.
My new eCourse is free. You can sign up HERE.
If you’re trying to write something at the moment, be it a novel, a short story, even a memoir or a blog post, and you’re feeling overwhelmed, try to whittle things down to a few key questions.
Home in on the essence of what you’re trying to achieve. That’s where you’ll find structure and clarity.
Ask yourself questions such as:
What does my main character want? (Like, really, REALLY want, Spice Girl!)
What theme am I trying to develop?
What central ideas do I want to express?
What do I want my reader to take from this?
What did I love learning about and how can I share that knowledge succinctly and with verve?
The more clarity you have, the more seamless your writing will appear.
And no one need ever know what REALLY went on behind the scenes.
Stay focused, dear reader, and keep the faith. You’ll get through the muddle. I promise!

Please note, the course goes live tomorrow night (Wednesday June 24) so this is the final call.
