Want to be a writer?

Do you rate it?

So apparently the more reviews and ratings I get for my book Gold Digger, the more other people want to look at it and buy it.... 



So, if you have read it, want to read it, or just like me, and are prepared to rate it based on my ability to entertain you on social media then slip over to Goodreads and rate away my friends! There is even a fancy 'too read' button you can hit if you do in fact want to read it sometime in the future, and if your feeling super generous you can even rate and review on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

Millionaire Matchmaker pros and cons

One of my many series linked program's on foxtel - I quiet enjoy sitting back and indulging in this guilty pleasure.


The show set in LA focuses on millionaires looking for love. That's right money can't buy you love, it can buy you a stripper or a hooker or some Gold Digging bitch but it can't buy love - sorry!!

So, Basically MMM is a rich persons matchmaking service that costs upwards of 30 K and gives them ( the desperate and dateless) piece of mind that they are in good hands, and basically affords them the privledge of not having to join the masses on tinder or grinder or whatever the kids are into these days. 

Most of the millionaires on the show have a bit of a chip on their shoulders which is quiet amusing, and it's fun to watch Patty break them down pretty quick and tell them how it is, the other half are awkward nerds who even with Pattis help are lost causes. The best bit is when Patty chooses the girls for the mixer.


 There is One thing I hate though! 


When some guy in his late 40's is like all 'my net worth is 1.2 million... ' Um hello - I'm nearly worth that and I'm poor as fuck!!!!  Even though you have a million in assets and drive a decent car, it doesn't make you a millionaire. Back in 1980 it would have cut it with me - but today, no way!!! 


Attention douch bags - 

Unless you have millions of dollars in the bank and a nice house and car combo and go on extravagant holidays to exotic places you are dreaming! Millionaire match maker should focus on the real millionaires, we want some Ritchy rich type shit up in this bitch.... 



By the end of the evening the fantasy was only halfway complete.....

(Last night) 




I've been writing and I'm at a really exciting, kind of crucial part and it's time for bed. I could stay up writing until the sun comes up but then I'll sleep all day, and people will start thinking I'm a vampire 😒











Too many inventions

When I'm with my best friend we talk about crazy weird shit a lot, and I like it. We laugh and talk and eat and just basically hang out and I like to use her as my sounding board for all the interesting inventions and business ideas I have. I've got about 10 really good ideas but no money to actually see if any of them would be worth persuing....

Juice is the word....

I had a really cool post about juices and how much I like them and how I buy my fruit at a farmers market on Saturdays and stuff, but somehow it deleted itself and you will never get to read it. I feel crazy about it because I worked on it, time went into it, and it was all for nothing! Look at the title - see what i did there.... I even downloaded a picture to go along with it and everything..... This is bullshit!!!!

Here is the picture anyway you may as well enjoy that at least .......

What book should I read?


If you didn't know, books come in genres! Yeah amazing I know! So, if you're new to reading or you have been sitting around wondering why you can't find a book that suits you, you should probably look up book genres. There are heaps to choose from - Romance, Sci-fi, thriller, autobiographies, historical, science fiction, chick lit, fantasy, drama - and dont forget lots of them have sub genres.... After deciding what book genre or genres to go with ie topics that interest you, or intrigue you, you can look up popular books in that particular genre and go from there. Goodreads is a great place to find books and read reviews on books you might be interested in, and it's actually somewhere I visit daily to upload things, like books and just generally hang around and do nerdy book things.....

The genres I love are chick lit and contemporary romance as a rule. But I do like to go over to the dark side and read other genres every once in a while. Sometimes I like them, sometimes it hate them but am happy for the experience. 







You kind of do what you want.......

Living in a fantasy land writing about people that don't exist... It's what I do.....

Are you listening?

Okay universe the moons are aligning and it's now time for The Age of Tara. The time when my book Gold Digger makes me the sort of money that can get me places and catapults me out of the bullshit that is festooned around me. No more struggling to make ends meet, no more wishing I can get the new cute outfit I want, and no more wondering if the petrol in my car will get me to my destination when I'm poor and waiting to be paid....

They say you should put your dreams and goals out there - so I'm shouting one of them from the rooftops.....

Yes this happened......

I have a bit of an addictive personality which is fun! I'm sitting here trying to think of a way to explain this facet of my complex personality to you, but I can't! Which is weird, because this is what this post is about - how I get addicted to things, lots of things and what I do and how it makes me feel.... I must be tired or something..... Just know it's addictive, and I have it!



Just the tip.....

I wouldn't blame you if you looked at the title of this post and assumed the contents of said post would be a story or a scenario involving a guy telling a girl it's not really intercourse if he only puts the tip in, just for a second, just  to see how it feels.  As intriguing a possibility as it is to continue with this line of thinking, unfortunately this post isn't going to go there. However, I would like to steer you in the direction of a page I follow on Facebook called Just the Tip. One of the most hilarious ladies I've come across on the net to date, 'Mrs Tip' regales us with her daily life in such a way you wish you knew her and could witness her in person. Here is her latest post for you enjoyment......

Delving into the archives.

I went for a trip down memory lane in a fabulous pair of heels...

Writing in Heels has been around for a while now, and definitely has a shit tonne (my word of the week) of posts that are worth checking out. You will my find the link to such posts in the archives section on the page......
From tips to writing your own book, book reviews, quotes from famous authors and everything writing and reading related to recommendations for cool music found in the depths of YouTube, Writing in Heels has something for everyone. There has been life lessons, stupid pics, hilarious stories about stuff that doesn't matter but is totally fulfilling in some sick twisted way..... Photos of me on drunken nights out, exerts from books I've been writing or are still, and the struggle that built strong foundations to me becoming a new author. Links to articles about writing and books and structuring paragraphs, word count websites, strange shit, and made up scenarios in my head. And when you thought Writing in Heels couldn't supply you with anymore, you're bombarded with an array of other shit that will make you wonder what Writing in Heels' true identity is... It's not just  a writing blog, it's a life journey, it's everything and nothing all at the same time. I am Tara, I don't make sense and I'm not like everyone else.....

Great reviews

I'm getting great reviews from my book Gold Digger from a heap of people, which is so great, amazing, cool, awesome. It's extremely fulfilling to have people send me a message and tell me how great they thought the book was and how they related to the characters and wondered if their will be another just like that... 


The only trouble is, they are texting, emailing, Facebooking, im'ing me, and every possible other mode of contact other than writing it where the reviews go!!!!! 

Goodreads has my book on their amazing book site and it has a really open space where all the reviews are supposed to go, likewise on the Barnes and Noble and Amazon websites where my book is available for sale. I've got like 3 reviews on the three sites combined and it's kind of doing my head in! I know my book had only been available for sale for a mere few months and it will take a hot minute for all the ducks to line up, but I'm not known for my patience, my cooking and hot ass yes, patience NO! So I just want it now, and I want all the lovely amazing people who sent me all their kind words and great reviews to copy and paste to pre discussed sites if it's not too much trouble.... Thanks in advance!






Wine making is very appealing to me......

I've always dreamt of owning or at least going to a winery. And then I'm like okay, I've been to a winery, actually I've been to a fair few -  I went on a wine tour. 
Okay, what I'm trying to say is, i'd like to own one,  or go to one, and stay there and make wine and eat cheese and stuff. I know it's probably hard work and all that but in my fantasy, the one wear I have cool cowgirl boots and tight jeans and look really kissable, it's all rolling around in the hay and sipping on wine that has been sitting in a dusty cellar for 40 years and nibbling on pieces of cheese on a picnic blanket overlooking a babbling brook, with moments of me looking all cute with my jeans rolled up squishing grapes and laughing at something really funny. And someone is looking at me with the light coming through the trees making me look all dreamy, doing the squashing of the grapes thing and thinking what a wonderful moment it is and they wished they could stay in it forever just for a split second.....



sangria, mason jars, cheeses among the grape vines. A few of these set up with sangria white/ red might be cute for Happy Hour

A few excellent blow jobs......

Bridgette is a girl on a mission... So what if she has to give a few excellent blow jobs in the process...















I'll write it down from all the way over here.......

It's been a hot minute since I've actually sat down and written out what's in my head for my blog. If you have noticed of late, well the last 4 months really, I've been on auto pilot where Writing in Heels has been concerned and have been mainly uploading writing related pics, quotes and such, with links to other writing sites so you've got interesting stuff to read because I'm not providing you with anything of my own, and basically  not writing what's inside me...which can only be awesome, cool stuff that needs to be read. 
I'll admit I've been a bit lazy, but luckily I'm feeling super energised about it, (providing you with quality content and focusing on Giving you  funny stories about my life and the crazy shit that goes on.... ) 
I don't think I've even told you 1% of the stuff that happens to me. People (friends) tell me I should write a book about it but I only deal in fantasy..... Which actually reminds me of this thought that  pops into my head quiet often if I'm honest and will possibly give some insight Into who I am if that sort of information interests you.

Basically until you get to know me I might come across as aloof, stuck up, shy, a bitch or other things that I can't think of right now,  and I actually have this fear that people I meet are judging me without knowing what a complex, cool, crazy, strange, free thinking, photo taking, music enthusiast, fantasy of a person I am, because I don't show them. 
I'm not tooting my own horn too hard, I do have flaws, for example I am quiet an emotional person which I'm told can be hard to deal with at times, I don't find importance in most things others do which is frustrating too many people, and I have a strange thing where I demand clean feet in my bed even if it's 2:30 in the morning and you haven't slept in 48 hours for some reason that I won't go into right now,  I don't care - you had better get your ass in the shower.... 
I know I can be a handful - but I balance it out by being adventurous in bed coupled with my ability to make people laugh and second to none jam making skills. But no one knows this, because I'm not easily penetrated. I don't think it's on purpose but it happens - it's happening. People are walking away and not knowing how amazing I am. But do I want them too - maybe I don't! Maybe I'm happy in my bubble being amazing all the way over here and thinking cool thoughts that no one gets to hear.... Maybe I'll just write it all down.....








She had a dream....

After a very relaxing day spent mostly in my pyjamas sprawled out on the lounge alternating between channelling surfing and eating, with a bath thrown in their somewhere, I've decided at 10:41pm, that I've rested on my laurels enough and maybe I should get motivated and do some work. i.e write some awesome blog posts, do some edits on a ghostwriting project I'm writing and get stuck into my third novel Ally in Disguise. I also need to upgrade my efforts where my newly published book Gold Digger is concerned. There is so much I can do to get my book out their and read by the right people, and hopefully they love it, and it sells lots and lots of copies and I make heaps of money and I can buy lots of Starbucks and a beach chair and go on a cool holiday.....
I also have a dream where all my crazy ideas for businesses come to fruition, and I turn into a famous book writing multiple business owner who likes cocktails served in hollowed out pineapples and reads books by the dozen whilst simultaneously being a fabulous person who is loved by all!

Think tank

Is a think tank something you have to do with other people or can you have like a one man think tank type situation? I was also wondering if it's normal behaviour to participate in one on your own? I basically want to do a one man or women think tank - were I lock myself in a room with air conditioning because it's super hot here in Queensland with heaps of snacks and fresh squeezed juice preferably pineapple apple and orange or watermelon and strawberry in those combinations with a shit load of ice. I would also need a fully charged iPad and phone incase I needed soothing music to get the thinky juices flowing whilst simultaneously texting someone.  I would also like 6 blue pens in various brands and lots of clean white a4 paper. And then I guess I would just start thinking. Because there can't be a think tank without thinking and also it would be pretty boring if you just sat there eating the snacks and drinking the juice but definitely full because food...yum! 





Stephen King - Writing is Hypnosis



You wouldn't usually find links to Stephen King anything on this blog, as I prefer to read instead stories about contemporary romances, love gone bad and generally chick lit type books. I do however admire Stephen King and his success and thought this was interesting and worth a share.


Will Sumner on boobs never being a problem.... Ever!

"Boobs are never a problem for anyone. Ever."
"Says the man without a pair. Boobs are functional, that's it.'
He looked at me with genuine fire in his eyes. "Fucking right they are. They get the job done."
I laughed groaning. "They aren't functional for you frat boy."
"Wanna bet?"
"In the way of what? My hands? My face? Don't you blaspheme in here." He looked up at the sky. "She didn't mean it, Lord, Promise."





Old Book Smell






Gold Digger



Three extremely different and independent women - a Gold Digger, a reporter, and a high society princess - become enmeshed through a whirlwind of lies, cheating, and betrayal.
From Wichita Falls, Texas, to the golden beaches of California, to bustling New York City, we see Bridgette's orchestrated rise from rags to riches, Angie's pursuit to achieve her dreams of becoming a top reporter at The New York Times, and Elizabeth's extravagant existence as daughter to one of the richest men in America and the wife of millionaire mogul Adam Pain.
Bridgette longs for a life of luxury and a man to provide it. She is discovered by Playboy, meets a producer, and starts a relationship. She moves on to the owner of numerous law firms, and then goes after Adam Pain, Elizabeth's husband. Bridgette falls in love with him, but it ends badly. She meets Grant, yet another millionaire, but later resumes her affair with Adam.

The health benefits of writing....

Apparently, The benefits of writing go far beyond building up your vocabulary. Which is good to know because I spend a lot of time doing it. Writing that is ......
No matter the quality of your prose, the act of writing itself leads to strong physical and mental health benefits, like long-term improvements in mood, stress levels and depressive symptoms. In a 2005 study on the emotional and physical health benefits of expressive writing, researchers found that just 15 to 20 minutes of writing three to five times over the course of the four-month study was enough to make a difference. 
By writing about traumatic, stressful or emotional events, participants were significantly more likely to have fewer illnesses and be less affected by trauma. Participants ultimately spent less time in the hospital, enjoyed lower blood pressure and had better liver functionality than their counterparts. 
It turns out writing can make physical wounds heal faster as well. In 2013, New Zealand researchersmonitored the recovery of wounds from medically necessary biopsies on 49 healthy adults. The adults wrote about their thoughts and feelings for just 20 minutes, three days in a row, two weeks before the biopsy. Eleven days later, 76% of the group that wrote had fully healed. Fifty-eight percent of the control group had not recovered. The study concluded that writing about distressing events helped participants make sense of the events and reduce distress.
Even those who suffer from specific diseases can improve their health through writing. Studies have shown that people with asthma who write have fewer attacks than those who don't; AIDS patients who write have higher T-cell counts. Cancer patientswho write have more optimistic perspectives and improved quality of life.
So what is it about writing that makes it so great for you?
James W. Pennebaker has been conducting research on writing to heal for years at the University of Texas at Austin. "When people are given the opportunity to write about emotional upheavals, they often experience improved health," Pennebaker writes. "They go to the doctor less. They have changes in immune function." 
Why? Pennebaker believes this act of expressive writing allows people to take a step back and evaluate their lives. Instead of obsessing unhealthily over an event, they can focus on moving forward. By doing so, stress levels go down and health correspondingly goes up. 
You don't have to be a serious novelist or constantly reflecting on your life's most traumatic moments to get these great benefits. Even blogging or journaling is enough to see results. One study found that bloggingmight trigger dopamine release, similar to the effect from running or listening to music.
From long-term health improvements to short-term benefits likesleeping better, it's official: Writers are doing something right.

It's not weird that you watched it!

"It's not weird that you watched it. It's weird that it's the start of a conversation. I just.... I'm still getting used to this. Before project hot chick, I just knew you as this dorky little sister. Now you're this.... porn watching woman who had a breast reduction and develops theories about hymen restoration. It's an adjustment."
