I am becoming aware that I need to vary my sentence structure when I get to the second draft. I tend to write three-sentence paragraphs - a short sentence, a longer sentence then a very long sentence. I write about how boring it can be when there is nothing to do at work and indications that I was in the wrong job.…
 
The writing process is teaching me how to live. By getting some perspective on my life, I am learning to recognise my destructive patterns and to work through them. If you have ever told yourself that something is impossible, this episode is for you. I talk about how throughout my life, I have sometimes felt as though things are impossible. By writ…
 
Writing is getting easier and easier as I just "do it". I am up to Day 65 and a few words shy of 50 000 words. I am still "just writing junk" and need to decide when I will start structuring and editing. I wrote about the walk I did this morning, about my decision-making process and about appreciating the little things.…
 
It's always a bit terrifying putting my unedited work out there, especially when I am writing about incidents where I felt so foolish. But I also think that by being vulnerable, this will somehow connect with my audience. These are three terribly embarrassing stories about work, when I was a young lawyer, and a story from my thirties when I started…
 
When I haven't been writing for a few days, I really pay for it when I do get back to my desk. My first writing day is always more difficult, and that was the case today. I wrote three short texts about my last job. It was a place where I worked with wonderful people and found real satisfaction - but that wasn't enough in the end.…
 
In this episode, I talk about feeling into what I want to write and how trying different styles of writing can help us become a better writer. I read about how I started to sing and my inappropriate behaviour in one of the top London law firms.Από τον Cecilia Poullain
 
Each piece of writing needs a Central Dramatic Question which has a yes or no answer. For part of my book - and my life - the Central Dramatic Question is: "Will I find a career that is personally and financially rewarding?" There needs to be an overarching Central Dramatic Question for the book and a Central Dramatic Question for each scene. I sta…
 
Boy it was hard to write today. I looked at my list of subjects to write about, and ended up writing about two things: my annoying habit of speaking up at the very end of a meeting and why my friend stole my German textbook. I think it is getting hard because I need to write about things that I am not proud of. I could and probably should be writin…
 
Today was a difficult day to get things done. I had wanted to spend all afternoon writing, but it didn't work out like that. I ended up writing about a terrifying incident in Tibooburra, a tiny town in far-western New South Wales in Australia, and about how proud I am to belong to a swimming club.Από τον Cecilia Poullain
 
I had lots of fears and doubts today about what I am writing. This is a very short episode because I spent time looking back through my notes to find ideas and things I wanted to write about. In the end, I decided to write something easy and agreeable - about why I love coaching so much.Από τον Cecilia Poullain
 
As I was writing the story about how my boss talked about my files in our team meeting - and I let him - I remembered another story about how another boss presented my work, fifteen years later. I realized that between the two, I had gained the courage to say it wasn't OK for me. And a tiny little story about the freedom I felt to dance when I was …
 
I met an English writer last night. We were talking about how to "just write junk". Interestingly, this led me to write this morning about a time in my life when I was trying so hard to write well that I couldn't write at all. This then led me to remember lots of tiny details about events that happened in the house I grew up in, in Bettowynd Road i…
 
Writing was easy for me today - I knew exactly what I wanted to write about. I had an awful singing lesson yesterday, which led me to these reflections on creating one's life as a masterpiece with time for both the yin and the yang.Από τον Cecilia Poullain
 
Sometimes, I come to my desk with an idea that is fully formed and it is just a matter of setting it down on paper. Sometimes, like today, I have no ideas. I made a long list of different things I might want to write about, then wrote about something completely different. I wrote about how breaking a large task, like cycling up a very long hill, in…
 
I've had an idea for an article buzzing around in my head all weekend, so I used my writing time this morning to write the article instead of writing my book (and doing all the other stuff I had planned to do...). It's about why it is so hard for people to be innovative in workplaces where fear and judgement are baked into the way our workplaces ar…
 
Today, I was pulling together diverse texts and putting them in some sort of rough order, so I didn't do any writing. I am finding that I need more time for this project, but I have no choice but to do it in the time I have. Because I didn't write anything new today, I read my text about my beautiful garden.…
 
I felt like writing today and had a memory of a magpie singing in the Blue Mountains in Australia. That's where I started writing. Then I wrote about waking my mother up at 4 o'clock in the morning to tell her that we were adopting our first child. I wrote the texts about meeting our children for the first time some time ago.…
 
Today, I thought about writing a letter from myself in November 2023 to myself in November 2022, but it started getting too boring for words. But I do talk about visioning and the power of visioning - when I have done this exercise before, often what I have envisioned comes to pass. I read my story about the importance of me having a vision for my …
 
I am starting to write in the same tone and feel as though I need to shake it up a little. Each text is starting to have a sameness to it. I read three texts, two on deaths of people very close to me and the third on leaving and how decisions often involve a grieving process.Από τον Cecilia Poullain
 
I talk about closure and how difficult we can find closure to be. Probably what I will write about tomorrow. I read a story about a stressful experience I had with my sister recently, and two stories about rejecting perfectionism and trusting my dreams.Από τον Cecilia Poullain
 
I talk about how my writing process is shifting from just producing content, whatever that may be, to pulling what I have written out of older, messy drafts and putting them into a cohesive format. I read two texts about the importance of my relationship with place.Από τον Cecilia Poullain

You will want to listen to this episode if you want to learn about the gap between imagination and what gets written down on the paper and how our perfectionism can stop us writing.
