Incredible editorial mentorship

If you’re keen to improve your editing skills, please apply for the amazing Tessera Editorial mentorship! I’ve had the absolute joy and privilege of being part of the latest cohort. I’m so grateful for everything I’ve learned in the past three months or so. It’s all available online, which helps a lot. The time difference between the US and Malaysia meant it was too tricky for me to attend live sessions, but caught up the recordings.

Note: This is a mentorship open to BIPOC individuals only.


Sleep, elusive sleep

How do you put yourself to sleep?

You might belong to the lucky percentage of people who simply need to drop your head on your pillow, and voila, you’re on your way to the land of zzzzzz’s. Or you could be more like me, when some sleepless nights require a bit more intervention.

My past two weeks of intense freelance writing have taken their toll on my sleep. The main issue is that when I finally do drag myself to bed, I’m too wired to fall asleep. After hours of being switched on, trying to suddenly switch off isn’t a simple option. So. Operation Sleepy Time will commence!

Here’s my plan for more effective sleepy time:
1) Stop all writing projects by 10 pm

2) Drink chamomile tea

3) Read a non-fiction book

4) No late-night texting/whatsapping/emails!
Hope this works!
