Terry Tyler gave us the only tips you need to finish your novel… procrastination at its best!

I love a good bit of flash fiction and here’s some from Iain Kelly that makes me want them to open the door…

~

And one more piece of flash fiction with a cliffhanger from Solo the first!!

~

Stepping away from fiction now, and here’s an intriguing read from Carol Hedges.  ‘Bluestockings – the campaign for female education’ is a blogpost that made me see how far education for women has come… and yet how far we’ve still got to be equal to men.~

And let’s not forget these wonderful linkers who shared their posts in my blog linkys:

The perfect yorkshire pudding from The Soap Mine.

A thought-provoking instagram quite from Sizzling Towards 60 (I love a good quote, as you know!)

Finally, Leanne from Cresting The Hill reminded us to be happy in the moment, now.  Don’t over-think your happiness.  Wise words indeed.

~

I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did.

Let’s start with a fantastic review of the book ‘Fantastically Great Women That Changed the World’ from Catherine at The Story Snug.  And what a great review to share for the recent International Women’s Day.

~

Here’s a piece of writing from GahLearner.  It’s like something from a horror film.  I don’t like horror but I loved reading this.  I actually felt victory for the worms!

~

These crafts from John at DadBlogUk look great.  I’ve never thought about trying origami with our daughter but she’s always loved (and continues to love) her crafts, so perhaps we should.

~

What a wonderful happy list this is from Nillu Nasser!  I particularly love turning up at a gig where only the music matters!

~

Shailaja shares some simple ways to stop multi-tasking.  I could definitely do with some help with this at times!

~

For #PositiveThinking Jade from A Positive Parent joined us.

~

For #TheZenZing Amethyst from One Sage Mama linked up

And David from Thinking Thrify also joined in.

~

While for #HighlightsofHappy  Sue from SizzlingTowardsSixty brought us her focus on happiness everyday.  Sounds good to me!

~

I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did.

Now on to my best reads which are mostly pieces of writing this month:

 

I kind of expected something like the ending to this piece of flash fiction from Claire Fuller but it didn’t make it any less enjoyable to read!

~

This from MisterDoctorBeckyMark could be made into a film.  Along the lines of Divergent but with a big twist.  Want to read more?!

~

Just perfect from Vicky Welton !  From capturing life moving quickly with the rhythm and pace, to the repetition and wise words at the end.

~

And from Sara at MumTurnedMom – my thoughts on the last line – illustrating that memories often turn into regret?  Great writing either way…

~

And to end – a powerful message from Becky at The Cuddle Fairy about the mind.  Take note!

~

I hope you enjoyed these as much as I did.

Now on to my best reads:

Our 7 year old won’t be going to the shop on her own for many years but his post from Mother of Teenagers raises some great questions about how far to protect our teenagers.

~

An incredible poem from Jude Hurrell which explores a very important topic.  She says in her post that she, “for once couldn’t smile and nod along with the narrow beauty ideals, the helpless gender stereotypes, the emphasis on finding romance and the ruthless marketing of it all.” She reads the poem so well, too.

~

This flash fiction from Dawn at Tales from the Motherland goes perfectly with this photo prompt…

Here’s a thought-provoking post from The Cuddle Fairy on having a positive inner voice… I do love a thought-provoking post 🙂

A change is coming for Virtually All Sorts in 2017

A change is coming for Virtually All Sorts in 2017 running order blogging vlogging wellbeing writing parenting blog
In true reflecting-and-looking-forward-fashion, I’ve shared my goals for the coming year.  And it’s also time to change the running order of Virtually All Sorts, to shake it up ever so slightly.  This is so that I can fit in all of my themes consistently.  You can expect the following from this little corner of the internet (with various other posts slotted in for good measure – sponsored posts, guest posts, reviews, giveaways…) :
  • Monday will be my #HighlightsofHappy blog linky …  I’m intent on continuing to spread the happiness far and wide, with your help of course!  Don’t forget that you can share you happy snap on insta, tag it #HighlightsofHappy and I will share my favourites that following week on the blog and also on insta.
  • Wednesay will be wellbeing day… where I will share all things related to wellbeing from yoga, healthy eating, positive thinking, gratitude, crystal healing, reiki, mindfulness.
  • Wednesday will also be writing day once a fortnight and will also feature my linky #WonderfulWorldofWriting on the first Wednesday of the month.
  • Thursday will be open to randomness as long as it fits my blog!
  • Friday will be #IfShesHappyImHappy which is all about the cycle of happiness – you being happy, making your child happy and it coming full circle to make you happy again!  We’ll look at empowering our children to be happy.
I hope you will continue to enjoy following my blog.  I love my little corner of the internet and it has evolved into an amazing achievement!

 

Are you a writer who would like to get involved in my forthcoming wellbeing magazine or would you like to guest post?  Or are you a brand interested in working with me?  Then drop me a line at virtuallyallsortsofeverything@gmail.com or tweet me @AllSortsHere

 

 

Have you taken the opportunity to make any tweaks and changes to your life (or blog) this year?  I’d love to hear from you!  Please comment (below) or tweet me @AllSortsHere.  And come and say hi on social media ~ 

 

Thank you 🙂

Why this year was a great one for me!

's planned for next year 2016 into 2017 happy new year goals focus planning blogging blog wellbeing writing parenting virtually all sorts round up
So here we are, right at the end of 2016 and what a year it’s been!  I’ve achieved so much on this here blog and a ton of that is because of Aby from YouBabyMeMummy and the great advice and courses she offers.

 

As a result of her Productivity Course and her Wrap Party, I’m streamlining, I’m more focussed and I’m making some changes for the new year!  I’m a great believer in not waiting for the new year to make changes but it just so happens that a little step back from the blog for a week or so has brought me to this time and place.  So it happens to be the new year that I’m publishing this…

 

What’s going to happen in 2017 then?
I will be:
  • Launching a paid-for feature/course around my theme of wellbeing…
  • I will be publishing and launching a new ebook to go alongside those I’ve already published.  It’s already written but needs a few tweaks and we’re good to go…
  • I will be doubling my brand work and sponsored posts…
  • I will double my freelance work…
  • I will double all of my social media followers, so that’s YouTube, pinterest, instagram, g+, facebook, twitter
  • I will finish my kinesiology course…
  • I will launch a reiki distance healing service.  Being attuned to level 2, I’m really looking forward to this…
  • I will launch a Bespoke Crystals feature…
  • I will launch an on and offline wellbeing magazine…
  • I will double the amount of writing competitions I enter…
  • And I will continue with my linkys ~ #AllSortsofBlogs, #PositiveThinking, #HighlightsofHappy on instagram, #WonderfulWorldofWriting, #TheZenZing
Are you a writer who would like to get involved in the wellbeing magazine?  Or are you a brand interested in working with me?  Then drop me a line at virtuallyallsortsofeverything@gmail.com or tweet me @AllSortsHere

 

What would you like to see on my blog in the new year?  What have you enjoyed about my blog this past year?  I’d love to hear from you!  Please comment (below) or tweet me @AllSortsHere.

~

So on to this month’s…

As a little round-up of my writing in 2016, I’d like to share with you my top posts of poems and flash fiction (according to my stats) and at the end of the little list, I’ll re-publish my personal favourite.  I’d love to know which one’s your favourite too?…

Best of 2016… my writing

‘The Friendship Journey’ ~ an observation of childhood friendships, how they’re made and how they’re (generally!) so simple.  It really doesn’t matter what our daughter’s friends look like, where they come from, what they eat, what colour their hair is.  If they ‘click’, that’s all that matters…

~

‘Thinking Outside the Box’ ~ a poem which explores our daughter’s ability to re-think a hiccup while building a toy.

~

‘No one knew when it was going to happen’ ~ as I continue to experiment with flash fiction, this was one of those that just flowed and this was the result.

~

‘Platform to another World’ ~ another piece of flash fiction where my imagination led the way.

~

‘How Safe is your Street?’ ~ a collaboration that I really enjoyed writing.

~

‘Pretty post-its and paper’ ~ this poem was inspired by … well the title speaks for itself!

~

‘Visiting Hours’ ~ a powerful poem on a personal level, which makes it my second personal fave!

But my favourite is ‘The Friendship Journey’.  If you’ve read this one before, I make no apologies but invite you to settle in for a couple of minutes and enjoy it again 🙂

The Friendship Journey

Moving house with a child is no easy thing to do,

A new bedroom, new school and new friends too,

A time of stress, anxiety, a logistical nightmare,

Emotions are tender, how will they fare?

~

You get it all sorted, a school place is yours,

A settling in session, opening of new doors;

Metaphorically, literally, it’s a critical time,

Reassured by people, “she’ll be just fine…”

~

It’s exciting, it’s scary for her and for us,

We try to hide our unease with a ‘positive’ fuss,

Goodbyes are said to old school friends, her mates,

A new chapter is coming, new friendships await…

~

Then new names come up in our daily chat,

“So and so said this, so and so said that,

Soon can they come after school and for tea?

They can play with my toys, they can colour with me.”

~

Of course the answer is, “yes, yes and yes!”

As long as she’s happy I can cope with the mess!

It’s lovely to see, a relief beyond doubt,

To see our girl happy, see new friendships carved out.

~

What’s more, it’s so nice she doesn’t care one bit

If her friend’s from Eastern Europe or if they’re a Brit!

All she wants is to play, to share jokes, to have fun,

As far as she sees it, they’re like her, we’re all ‘one’…

~

By Carol Cameleon 2016

The story behind the poem: As our little girl is cementing new friendships after a house move and subsequent new school, it’s intriguing and refreshing that background really doesn’t matter, as long as she ‘clicks’ with them…

~

Have you looked back on your best bits yet?  I’d love to hear!  Tweet me @AllSortsHere or comment below…

Thanks 🙂
