Get ready to embrace your inner publisher
My first attempt at self publishing was a simple 18 page booklet that lived at the back of my masters dissertation folio. Within weeks of submitting that for assessment I was running a tiny support group for women and was photocopying and sending that booklet out in exchange for a stamped addressed envelope and £1 Since those early days of getting batches of 10 at a time photocopied I’ve learnt a lot about what makes a writer a publisher and I’ve come to realise that it’s not just about books or booklets. Instead it’s wh...

Life in the present tense
It was the cards I noticed first this morning. Each one neatly placed on the windowsill. Carefully butted up against the thin line of mastic securing glass into frame; they were spaced almost exactly it seemed, but without the benefit of a ruler I couldn’t be sure. They ran in order, Hearts, then Spades, Diamonds and finally Clubs; each suit starting Ace’s low. You were moving slowly, gathering them up into a neat stack and beginning to lay them out again. I watched you for a while before going to the kitchen to make the first of many cups of tea. The kettle boiled, I poured water into two mugs on top of the te...

She smiled encouragingly nodding slightly to show it was okay to speak. He raised his hand. ‘Yes Danny’.

A New Postpartum Depression Drug Could Lead to a Revolution in Treating Women ’s Mental Health Issues
About one in seven women who give birth in the U.S. experience postpartum depression—a condition that can leave them exhausted, make it difficult for them to bond with their babies, and even generate thoughts of suicide. Left untreated, the condition can become chronic and interfere with the development of suffering mothers’ babies. It also takes a toll on society at large; untreated maternal mental health conditions cost the U.S. more than $14 billion a year, according to a 2019 study from Mathematica, a social policy research firm. Despite this, many women struggling with postpartum depression do not receive ...

Exercising your happiness muscle
I believe happiness is always ours. What I mean by that is that it’s always there, lurking in the background, but sometimes for some of us, it’s been so covered up with sadness and the circumstances of life we’ve forgotten it exists for us, always. As I was wandering around my local village on my morning dog walk with The Beeble and Pip today it occurred to me happiness is a bit like a muscle that needs exercising; you know like the ones around our middle we can’t see but know if they were stronger or firmer our waist might be a little trimmer. Last week I was up around Chester and when I got back I...

The happiness factor
To be or not to be, that is the question? The opening line of Hamlet’s soliloquy is a memorable piece that you probably remember from school days. But it is the beginning of a personal consideration about the merits of suicide; it’s no wonder the play is one of Shakespeare’s tragedies. I like to think that perhaps Will could have improved it just a little by the addition of one simple word. To be happy or not to be happy, now that is an even more interesting question? Perhaps in changing the tone of the opening line Hamlet might have changed his fate and so turned tragedy into something altogether lighter...
