How to start writing again after a long hiatus

How to start writing again after a long hiatus | Nicole Cappelleri

One of the worst years of my life has been 2017. Why? I totally stopped writing and blogging. Well, I can put 2016 in that bucket too and I even vowed to turn things around during my last yearly review but procrastination, business diversions and the black dog got the better of me.  I would say I’ve had long hiatus from writing and, I don’t like it.   I like to think the cause of my depression are many little complications and big problems like my day job but probably a big part of it was I switched off the creative tap. The outlet that I enjoyed so much, my […]

It took me 20 years to embrace my creative side and at times I feel like a total crazy person. I’ve always felt different but as I get older I’ve learnt to embrace the crazy creative spark. It’s my compass and I’m totally grateful for it. So here’s how I’m a crazy creative: I Love ALL the arts. Plays, dancing, painting, drawing, writing, design, architecture, decorative arts, sculpture, you name it, I love it. I jump from idea to idea. Stopping and starting projects all the time. I can’t choose what I want to do and I want to do it all. I’ve lost respect from people but gained respect […]
