Mid-week link round-up

2014-06-02 16.55.15-2There’s always food for thought going around the world every week, so I thought I would start posting a few things I’ve been reading. I stumbled upon Pocket (previously ‘Read it Later’) last week, and it has made bookmarking and reading things later much easier, across my laptop and iPhone. I can access the bookmarks offline too, which means I can read things on the tube or when I have a spare moment in a no-reception area.

It has also freed me up a little, knowing that I don’t necessarily have to read things straight-away, and won’t have to search for them in my browser bookmarks.

The past week has been a mixed bag – a lot of ideas and inspiration. I’ve been drawn to articles about getting over ‘writers-block’ or a lack of passion or motivation for writing, namely because I’ve been trying to rekindle that passion I felt when I started writing properly again in 2009 – which seems both long ago and only yesterday. I’ve also reading articles that talk about disability, as well as psychology, confidence and feminism. Enjoy!
