I won Camp NaNoWriMo


I have done it!!!

"Delayed" is still not finished but I have surpassed the word count I had set for myself.  I'm loving this story.  I've left my main characters just enjoying their first kiss...

Next week I will get back to it and get it finished soon (first draught) so  I can let the editing begin and get it up for release before the end of the summer for you all to read.

Super proud moment!

Much love from a tired typist who just wrote a novel

Autoimmune diet and me - my podcast!

Hey everyone!!!

I'm thrilled to bits to announce my new news!

iTunes have accepted my podcast request and you can now subscribe to my podcast over there! I'm chuffed to say the least.  I was thinking it would be so so complicated and as you know by now, I've lots of fingers in many pies already!

Life is busy already.

Although you will come to learn over the next few weeks on the podcast, that life has *got* to change for me.  It's a must!

So what is my podcast all about?



I have opted to not just chit chat (although there will be plenty of that in the beginning of the podcasts!) but the second part of the podcasts I'm going to niche right down to talk about making health better through using the right nutrition.
For myself,  you might well know by now that I have Crohns disease (among other things!) and this is one of many autoimmune diseases.

Just recently, I had a turning point, an AHA moment, if you will, and this has lead me to this place.

You may know I'm currently taking a degree in Human Nutrition and I love all things like that.  Perhaps I can help someone you know too.  So I will be starting to chat about this a little over on my Youtube channel too as well as all the usual Vlogs.  

This coming week, I will be putting up another show where you can see me opening up and speaking honestly about what made me decide to get back to the special autoimmune diet.  Also how I'm feeling now.

You will make my day if you come over for a listen and perhaps share. The great thing about podcasts is you can download them to listen offline,  just the same way as you would the latest album release (although the podcast is FREE).  You can listen in the car, in the gym etc so head over to the link below and find me on iTunes.  Let me know you've subscribed too.  I'd love to hear from you if you are a listener but definitely if you are also an autoimmune illness sufferer.

Meanwhile, wishing you much love

Louise xoxo

Anxiety, Low mood and Depression

Hey everyone

How does your mood feel today?

It's honestly not unusual to feel low and more and more people are finding they are happy to share their experiences with others.  Look on Youtube, you will see so many 'sufferers' talking about their feelings and thoughts and sharing what has worked for them and what hasn't.

While I'm currently researching the hypothesis that all depression does in fact start with gut issues, (check back to this blog for details on this!) there is still a very real feeling out there where often you can feel alone.

However, there is so much more to life's worries than just those listed above.  Relationships,  work,  weight,  friendships.  Often it's good to share stories so you can begin to get over these things, lay it to rest and move forward.  To harbour it does you no good whatsoever!

This is the point where I share this website with you http://iamstrugglingwith.com .
Go check it out and you will find an awesome place to support you and leave you feeling it's not just you after all!

Leave me a comment below to let me know what has worked for you when trying to move forward and be more upbeat and positive.  We all have such different regimes that work for us!


Wishing you the very best of days and lots of love as always

Louise

One more week of Camp NanoWriMo

Who's writing?

Are you doing Camp NanoWriMo?  Well, I am and loving it.  My story is taking twists and turns that I definitely didn't expect to happen! The romance is just about to begin to bloom between the two main characters Liv and Thomas. I can't wait to see what starts to happen!

Previously, I never quite understood novelists who explained how the story was just happening as if it was out of their control.  Yet something seems to happen when you get in the flow and it's like the story takes on a mind of its own!

Today I shall be writing more and I will smash my word count that I set for NaNoWriMo of 10,000.  The story needs to be much longer but knowing I have at least hit those 10,000 words takes the pressure off.

My main surprise has been how I have found a lack of motivation!!! Gosh, what's that all about?  I used to sit in judgement with authors who complained about this issue.  I was always dreaming of the chance to sit at my desk and write, write, write.  Although I have now found ways that work for me, doing the one thing I dreamed of could get a little monotonous.  Instead I move around a lot with the laptop,  write with a pen sometimes in my ideas book,  interact with other members of Camp NanoWrimo.

I'm not sure when the book is likely to get released.  I have realised the best thing to do is get the story down.  Edit later.  Lots of spelling, typing, grammatical errors that need sorting.  During camp, it is the writing of the first draught which counts.  Editing can come along later.  I'm very excited to finish my word count today and see how many more words flow.

Loving my writing! I can't wait to share this love story with you!


Come back soon for more updates on the story and some exciting news about my podcast!

Much love as always

Louise xoxo

Getting back to The Secret

It's been quite some time since I have touched on the Law of Attraction on this blog.

Which is where it all began.  Me.  Discovering the Law of Attraction.  Me realising that life was there to build on your dreams and to lead you to opportunities.

Someone very dear to me just sent me this article.

http://www.thesecret.tv/stories/how-my-writing-dream-came-true/

The Secret has a kind of blog which shares success stories.  Truly, truly inspirational.

Now I really think that my Youtube channel needs an update of a video from me talking to you about the Law of Attraction.  Let me tell you another Secret...

It's not all roses!!!




What?  No belief?  Well, yes, a massive belief and a knowing that something bigger than the human ego is out there in charge of it all.  This thing called life has to be a journey,  a learning experience. It's not all perfect.  

I believe you go through stages once you have discovered the Law of Attraction.  I've been at the stage for some time where you begin to dip out of the first euphoric state of "I can do ANYTHING!" and begin to realise it's a process.
Sometimes,  you need to be lead down a path which may seem like a really bad idea at the time.  Yet after dealing with some negativity and 'tough love' you might realise that this is in fact leading you right into your dream.

Things begin to unfold for you as you realise that your language of positivity and love (not always appreciated by everyone) is rewarding you.  Too much negative talk and once again you begin to see conflict appearing in your life.  Yet there will always be people out there who can do nothing but negative talk and for them, we must wish them well as they need all the love directed at them as we can.  Evil will manifest itself in many ways, usually illness, heartbreak or just simply hate coming back at them.

So while it is important to keep on the path of least resistance and positivity, I do believe it's possible to go through waves while living a life of Law of Attraction.  Sometimes, while trying to live out your dream,  you will be guided in ways to get you to the end of your dream which you may not realise is taking you there.  This can be so tricky to swallow.  Have you experienced this?  Let me know if this resonates with you.

Meanwhile,  have a read of the link above.  A story of a writer.  Often,  this dream takes some time to come true as it's often a path we are on with a level of doubt about making a living at it. 

I'm so fortunate to say this is now a dream realised for me as I begin to write for others now.

You may have seen my blog posts on NaNoWriMo.  Well, this novel is unfolding beautifully...I'm excited...talking of which, I must get back to it!

Wishing you much much love in your positive day.  Share some love.  Be amazing to people around you.  Compliment folks.  They will love you for it.

Louise xoxo

Writing a novel for #campNaNoWriMo

You may have seen #NaNoWriMo floating around the internet, especially on twitter.

My Dad asked me to speak English when I mentioned it!!! Are you wondering what it is too?

Well this video should explain it all if you don't already know what NaNoWriMo is about.  Basically it's an opportunity to write a novel in one month.  Usually takes place in November but July sees more relaxed rules and a minimum word count of 10,000 - which is the novella size I have opted for.

Without further ado I must get back to it.  Go watch the video for a cover reveal of my book and come back here often to find out more about it.  There have been many years past since I have written fiction and I'm very excited.  Romance....ahh..what's life without a bit of romance?

Much love as always

Along with some rainbows and unicorns thrown in for a nice balance after watching Jurrasic last night!
