Revive the senses through feel-good food. Just do anything food-wise, no matter how small, that makes you zing: pour hot water over fresh herbs for a fragrant tea; buy a whole organic pumpkin for a kitchen table centrepiece; thank a farmer at a farmers' market; put your hands on warm earth; spot a local rosemary bush; snag some for your lamb roast or your hair (Why not? Go nuts!); and comment to share your feel-good spring snippet. If stuck for ideas, mine are yours. Let's unite in support of feel-good food and ethical food practices. Thanks to all too who supported my Spring Feel-Good Food Project. I had a blast! While my food interests are diverse, so is my food writing history (and lifestyle freelance writing and corporate writing, yada...). Please see below right and my new FoodLit Website. Yeah! Please also subscribe for occasional food-fuelled news, ventures and opportunities.

Hello Editors & Publishers! Day 57, 34 To Go...

Lakshmi Rising From The Lotus (Or Me From A Well-Satiated Zucchini)

When the editor of one of your favourite magazines reads your blog and calls to say we want you on the team, it doesn't matter that:

-  your blog isn't optimised for mobile friendliness
-  you've been trying to upload images to Instagram from your laptop instead of your phone..
-  your social media strategy lies in a paper (yes, the stuff that grows on trees) mess with 
   sticky notes, highlighter and confusion written all over it

It's such a mess, in fact, that the sight of it makes me want to hurl myself into the kitchen, fridge, stove and oven (not literally) and cook myself (not literally) into escapism - or tramp to the garden and dig myself a hole with my shiny, new red spade, not to bury myself in, but to plant a new tomato seedling after the cat next door scratched out the last one, peed on it and killed it.

Editors, I'm available for writing work with the right mags. Here's my profile.  

Publishers, I'm making good progress on my book.  

Everyone, I'm taking two days off from my keyboard and my un-optimised mobile to be in spring.

Foodliterary Regards,
Julia Svoice
