H is for Healthy Habits #AtoZChallenge

H is for Healthy Habits #AtoZChallenge

The Blogging from A-Z Challenge continues today. Throughout April I’m posting about my life as a writer, including my inspirations, frustrations and celebrations. For the letter H, I’m talking about how writers need to build healthy habits into their routine. Self-care is important. That’s the message we’re hearing everywhere at the moment. But taking care of ourselves when we’re living busy lives is not easy. For writers, it can be particularly challenging.

I’m Back! What Happened on Hiatus?

After a super long hiatus, I’m finally returning to blogging! My absence has largely been due to my maternity leave ending in September last year and finding it hard to juggle hobbies like blogging and reading alongside the demands of full-time work and looking after my daughter. I have really missed sharing my book reviews and artwork on Creative Therapy and engaging with my book blogging family.
