I love a quote I received from Michael Neill.
“There is no stress in life – there is only stress in our thinking.”
If it helps you, grab it and live by it. If it doesn’t, find a quote that brightens your day or inspires you and remind yourself of it every morning when you wake up. Happy Wednesday! Liane x

Yo, guys. Freddie’s in the house.
You arrive at a party and you’ve had nothing to eat all day. Your stomach rumbles. You head over to the food. There’s a crowd and you can’t see anything but the smells are awesome.
Everyone in front of you gasps. A few plates smash on the floor. You go up on your toes but can’t see over all the heads. You use your hands to push two people apart. Your mouth drops open.
What’s happened? Over to you guys. Happy Monday! Freddie xx

Today let’s look at rhythm in the words. Whether you’re writing a song, a poem or a story, the rhythm of the words can make the difference between gripping the audience or just telling them something you want to say.
The best way to ensure your words have a good rhythm is to record them and listen. What sounds stilted or false? You’re looking for natural. Didn’t often sounds better than did not and the word that is vastly overused. Write a few sentences and record them and see what you can tweak, delete and rearrange to enhance the rhythm of the story you’re telling. Prepare to be amazed
Happy writing! Liane x

For those of you who’ve read The Chronicles of Joya you know they know how to have fun on that planet.
Imagine you are one of your favourite characters in the book or a movie and notice how you stand, talk and think differently.
Have fun! Happy Wednesday! Liane x
