…is an inspirational blog by writer, S.M. Hutchins, focused on encouraging us to appreciate the wonder all around us in our everyday lives. This is a wonderful thing and we all need reminding!
Every Wednesday she hosts an interview with someone — encouraging us to see things from a different perspective and perhaps find something new to apply to our own lives.
I met ‘S.M.’ through an online writers forum and she has deigned this week to interview me. Please click through to read my responses to the following questions:
- What have you been wonderstruck by recently?
- What part of your day are you grateful for?
- What part of the day is tough? How do you move through it?
- What do you wish you were more conscious of?
- How do you stay focused on what is truly important to you?
I hope you also take some time to share the wonderstruckness and browse around the blog. There’s some cool stuff on there.

While I daresay this is true for some people – we’re all wired differently after all – I’m willing to bet a large number have never actually tried listening to an audiobook. I’m here to tell you they’re awesome!

There’s lots of blog love going around in my world at the moment. Just as I hosted S.M. Nonnemacher here on Friday, so have I appeared as a guest over on Liv Rancourt‘s blog.
Liv, who is a Seattle-based author of speculative fiction, asked me to share some insights on what it’s like to live in Melbourne — which was last year named the world’s most livable city by The Economist.
I was delighted to share my thoughts as to why we might have received this accolade. Naturally I feel it has much to do with… coffee.
