A perfect moment.

Posted by Olivia Giles on Friday, August 26, 2016,
I had a perfect moment yesterday. 
A pinnacle of a moment.  
A moment I never really thought Id have - ever.
But I did, but instead of trying to hold on to that moment
I am going to write it down and then let it go.  
This is about Creative Process and how it works for me, and how it shaped my first ever novel
 "Heart of the Tapu Stone" 

     
 
 

As probably everyone in this country, and quite a few countries around the world know, Lawrence Makoare is an actor and a carver.

The smug bitch essay...

Posted by Olivia Giles on Saturday, August 20, 2016,


There is a rule that people stick too and I should stick to but I don’t, about being a smug bitch and the curse that is attached to it.
But I’m not scared of the ‘smug bitch’ curse. 
 I don’t believe in it.  I’ve broken it way too many times to take it seriously.

  • Big is a complete and utter arse-hole
  • I know a lot of woman who do actually have that life.

Me and the most important part of my writing process
"Scotty too Hotty" Andrew Giles, my husband and the chief lolly buyer, bill payer 
enthusiasm encourage-er and cup of tea maker



The End....well not really, finishing a book doesn't end until the thing is on the book shelf, you, the author open it randomly and find a fecking typo...get depressed and go to bed for six months with ice cream and 'Darling Buds of May' videos.

It's been a long time coming, and now I think the book is finished, of cou...

 The Selfie collection
I have now disclosed my obsession with myself hahaha Actually these are photos I've taken over the last two years when I've felt so bloody sick I wanted to, literally, be asleep all the time.  
Instead I slapped on some lippy and took a pic of myself.  
Click pics for exciting *yawn* fun facts.


I just realised from the pics I have like three outfits.


Not good at keeping a diary, my brain is a bit too random but will have a decent go at it.
