If you have ever felt like screaming the words, ‘Stop the world, I want to get off!’ then this e-book is for you.

It covers 15 helpful tips on how to bring yourself back from the brink of insanity. Each tip is practical and easy to try, with humour and fun thrown in for good measure.

For those of you who received prerelease copies, we have some updates. Thanks to your wonderful feedback, I’ve added two extra tips and lots of new information. I also made some layout changes so the book looks less formal.

Reminder – Last Day for Giveaway!

Just a quick reminder that Sunday is the last day for the e-book giveaway. I’m sending out personalised copies of my new e-book to everyone who participates in the giveaway this week. This is the only opportunity you will have to see the e-book before its launch in January.

You just have to do one (or both) of the following:

  • Leave a comment. Which post did you particularly enjoy? What sort of things would you like to see more of on this blog?
  • Take this quick survey. (9 questions, all optional.)

If you have already participated in the giveaway but haven’t yet received your e-book, email me at  jessicabaverstock (AT) gmail (DOT) com  and let me know.

If you’ve had a chance to look at the book, please let me know what you think – especially if there are any areas you feel could be improved.


2 Year Milestone: A Survey and Giveaway!

A little girl throwing confetti in the air

It was on this day two years ago that I posted my very first article on this blog. It was entitled The Need for Creativity.

Since then I’ve had a wonderful ride, and a couple of bumps along the way (including a hiatus earlier this year for health and wedding reasons).

I have made some wonderful friends through this blog, and look forward to making many more as my journey continues.

I want to thank you for reading my posts and commenting. Your time and attention is very precious. I appreciate you spending some of it on my blog.

I’ve got some exciting improvements in the pipeline, some of which I’ve already mentioned.

One improvement I’m toying with is the addition of a Resources section to my site, where I’ll collect together links to some of my favourite blogs and articles. I plan to group them according to subject (motivation, collecting ideas, writing drafts, editing, publishing tips etc.). If you have any thoughts or ideas about this, please let me know.

The Giveaway!

My e-book (Tips for Those Contemplating Insanity) is almost finished and for this coming week I’m giving away personalized pre-release copies of my e-book to those who participate in one of the two options below. (Once released, the e-book will be free, but in this giveaway you’ll get an advanced copy with your name and a message on it – just for you!)

My goal is to continue creating content which you find useful and entertaining. Your feedback is very important so please take a moment to do one (or both) of the following:

  • Leave a comment. Is there a post you’ve particularly enjoyed? What sort of things would you like to see more of on this blog?
  • Take this quick survey. (9 questions, all optional.)

Each person who comments and/or completes the survey, will receive an e-mail from me containing their personalized e-book. (Please comment below to let you know you’ve completed the survey as it is anonymous.)

I’m open to your suggestions. Your comments help me to improve.

And thank you again for reading.
