I have my own personal Jiminey Cricket. He masquerades as my husband. He is admittedly, rather too corpulent to sit on my shoulder, but nevertheless he is forever whispering in my ear. His usual chant involves nagging me to make more entries in my blog. My retort is often based on the “quality not quantity” principle. As ever, annoyingly, he is right. So, in an attempt to get into the swing of writing on a more frequent basis, I will try and write a brief diary entry on the days I am not penning a major blog overture.I am very grateful to Elisabeth Winkler’s insightful tips on how to start to write a piece – she suggests setting a timed slot of ten minutes to one side to start the process – it is simple but effective, and just about the right length for a diary entry.
Thank you Elisabeth.
