July 2022

I’m sure you’ll agree that life appears to just get busier and busier; each time I near the end of one ‘to-do’ list, another materialises before I can even consider a break. Whether it is the demands of a job; or the persistence of children; or even just those niggly little jobs that life requires of us, (like the washing – ugh, washing). For me, a busier life has meant that I have struggled to find time to fit in my reading – novels have been taking so long to read that I am finding myself losing interest without really giving them a chance. Last month, I decided to spend some time with shorter forms for writing that I could read in one sitting. The impact was instant – not only did I get back into a consistent rhythm of reading, I also found myself taking regular short breaks that have done wonders for my well-being.
