Time moves so fast!

By |May 7th, 2019|

I'm not sure that I've found this article and posted it previously. In fairness, we are starting to head towards the #500 jobs mark, so sometimes it is hard to keep track. Ok, it's very hard to track and we're [...]

Let me entertain you

By |October 12th, 2018|

I read something interesting recently. It was a small excerpt from a Masterclass conducted by the inestimable Margaret Atwood, writer of Handmaid’s Tale (amongst a plethora of other much loved gems). She was talking about choosing somewhere different to start [...]

One space or two?

By |June 4th, 2018|

Are you a one-spacer or a two? I have a confession to make. I usually put two spaces after a full stop (yep, I'm old enough that I learned to type on a typewriter) but I'm trying really, really, really [...]

Bitter parallels

By |April 16th, 2018|

This was a piece I wrote a couple of weeks ago and didn't get around to posting as (and I'm aware of the irony) life overtook me. Since then, my friend (who was also a follower of this page) has [...]

What would you say if you were dying?

By |March 12th, 2018|

I’m supposed to be writing about firewalls and hybrid networks today, but to be honest, I can’t keep my mind on the job. So I thought I’d pen (metaphorically) what is really on my mind.   You see, I’ve been [...]

Make time for listening

By |February 15th, 2018|

I spend a lot of time thinking about listening.  I don’t know exactly why.  Partly it’s my job.  As a writer, failure to listen properly usually means you are off brief, or have failed to ask the questions that would’ve made it easier [...]

Did I mention it’s a tad warm outside?

By |February 15th, 2018|

The internet at home (which is my office) is not working all that well today. I’m blaming the weather. (“Hotter than a hooker in a hostage situation” is how my weather app described the blistering conditions outside.) So although it [...]

Running Impostor here!

By |October 29th, 2017|

Before I start, let me assure you, this is not a pity post.  Nor is it a post where I am fishing for compliments like a teenage girl (“No, really!  You are so awesome, Tash! Like, so, so super awesome.”)  [...]

What we’ve done in 3 years!

By |June 20th, 2017|

Happy Birthday to Us! Your Write is turning 3!  And what a lot has happened in that short amount of time! For a start, there are the geographical practicalities.  As the idea of Your Write took seed all that time ago, [...]
