from http://www.selfgrowth.com/experts/craig_lock.html About the Author Craig has a 'passion' for writing books that tell stories about people doing positive things in this often so hard, sometimes unkind world, occasionally cruel, yet always amazing world - true stories that leave the reader feeling uplifted, empowered and hopefully even inspired. https://www.createspace.com/3779691/ and http://www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 Craig Lock loves to encourage and empower people to be the best they can possibly be, and to create what they want in life. Craig has learnt plenty from the "school of life" (still "battered and bruised") and also from a few "hard knocks on the head". He is an extensive world traveller (on a "shoestring budget") and failed professional emigrater who has spent most of his life’s savings on airfares. He is still sliding down the razor blade of life on the beautiful undiscovered island that is New Zealand, somewhere near the bottom (rude!) of the world near Antarctica. There he talks to the 60 million sheep! Craig has been involved in the corporate world (life assurance) for over twenty years in South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. However, through a strange set of circumstances and finding himself in a small town near the bottom of the world ...and with nothing else to do, he started writing. That was five years ago. Five published books later and having written another twenty manuscripts (on widely differing subjects - well what else is there to do here?)... this is where Craig is in the "journey/adventure" that is life. Craig has taught at the local Polytechnic, as well as running a successful creative writing course (not teaching sheep!). He was the author of (as far as we know) the first creative writing course on the internet Craig has many varied interests and passions. He is particularly interested in the field of psychology – studying the human mind and what makes different people "tick-tock grandfather clock". He is fascinated by the "overlap between psychology and the dimension of spirituality". One of his missions in life is helping people make the most of their hidden potential and so finding their niche in life... so that they are happy. Craig’s various books probably tell more about his rather "eventful" life best (no one could believe it!). He writes books with serious messages and themes, then as a contrast "rather crazy, wacky stuff"…to keep him sane here. As an ‘anonymouse’ person wrote: "All of us are born mad; some of us remain so." Well nothing else much happens in quiet provincial New Zealand, other than headlines like "Golf Ball Thrown at Policeman" and "Beach Toilet Closed for Season.".

  2. Reblogged this on A Tale of Two Cities.

    Hi

    To answer a few questions (I’m “snowed under”, so sorry, don’t have resources as a “one man band” to answer you individually on my many many blogs http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/

    * this and my various other blogs cost NOTHING, but time and energy

    * I don’t do social media, like Twitter, etc. Can’t for the life of me see why people want to spend/waste their time on that (if people wanted to follow me, my close friends say it should be with a video-camera!), so just use WordPress and my various articles at http://www.selfgrowth.com

    * I get really really fatigued. So don’t have time to look at other web sites or comment on design (anyway I know nothing about that). Firstly, to the few (.001%??) who may be complaining about the occasional “spelling mistake” (have you heard of British English??), or want more pictures, I don’t have time…and “don’t major in minor details”- I just write.
    Perhaps ”man invented language in order to satisfy his need to complain.”
    – Canadian linguist Steven Pinker

    * All my articles may be freely reproduced (sorry don’t have time write for other websites), as I’m busy writing a few books at the moment
    I put most of my focus into my books, so have no idea how to add sound, video, etc to the blog…to make it better.
    …but am learning “on the go”

    * please feel free to link to the web site or my various other WordPress blogs at http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/
    should you wish, but I have no time to return links.

    * You may not believe this, but I’m a “total non-techno”, so know, NOTHING about web site design, browser problems, feeds, hosts, servers, overlapping, etc. And lay-out is not one of my strong points. I just write and post on the blog…impulsively! How I got am where I am is a “miracle” . And no one would believe the story (only those who have true faith)! BELIEVE it (first) … then you’ll see it!
    “Believing is seeing.”
    (BEFORE the event)

    * I don’t have a newsletter to subscribe to (Can I end a sentence with a “preppie”?).

    * Will try to post articles from time to time, but all my writings are available at http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/user/15565 and http://www.ideamarketers.com/library/profile.cfm?writerid=981

    (Personal growth, self help, writing, internet marketing, spiritual, ‘spiritual writings’ (how ‘airey-fairey’), words of inspiration. Please feel free to use

    * Finally, if you want to start a blog and want some tips, you may find my articles on writing at http://www.craigswritingarticles.wordpress.com

    helpful If I could put up a blog, then ANYONE can!

    Just go for it and good luck

    thanks for the understanding and I DO really appreciate your “writing in”

    “When (or if ever) you arrive in heaven, let faith, hope and love be the wings that carried you there.”

    – c

    from http://www.sharefaith.wordpress.com

    “Having pursued the goals, the dreams set before us and run the race with persistence and endurance, after giving it all. Then one day standing on the summit of life, breathing in the pure sweet oxygen of achievement, totally satisfied in running the greatest race, the race of life one that ANYONE can run and win.”

    Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  51. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different
    then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    1. THANKS for the feedback/comments/question

      Hi

      CAN’T KEEP UP…BUT THANKS FOR THE “THANX”
      MANY MORE COMMENTS OVERNIGHT and many hundreds of thousands already on my various other blogs at http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/…true!) …obsessive or WHAT! *So hope it’s not slowing down your loading speed!). Am really pleased you are enjoying my writings, as the reason I write is to share.
      So sorry can’t reply individually to all you good people scattered around the planet, but DO try to read as many as possible daily (and even moderate a few when I get a “mo”),

      I do really appreciate your liking, linking to and/or following this blog (and “writing in”), so “thanks for the thanx”

      To answer a few questions (I’m “snowed under”, so sorry, don’t have resources as a “one man band”, nor “the mental/cognitive energy” to answer you individually on my many many blogs http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/

      * this and my various other blogs cost NOTHING, but time and energy

      * I don’t do social media, like Twitter, etc. Can’t for the life of me see why people want to spend/waste their time on that (if people wanted to follow me, my close friends say it should be with a video-camera!), so just use WordPress and my various articles at http://www.selfgrowth.com

      * I get really really fatigued. So don’t have time to look at other web sites or comment on design (anyway I know nothing about that). Firstly, to the few (.001%??) who may be complaining about the occasional “spelling mistake” (have you heard of British English??), or want more pictures, I don’t have time…and “don’t major in minor details”- I just write.
      Perhaps ”man invented language in order to satisfy his need to complain.”

      * Iif you keep on getting about 4 emails if you’ve subscribed to RSS feed (??),
      have had that problem before on another blog and WordPress said you can contact them and said they’d sort out (email help@wordpress.com and/or support@wordpress.com)

      * All my articles may be freely reproduced (sorry don’t have time write for other websites), as I’m busy writing a few books at the moment
      I put most of my focus into my books, so have no idea how to add sound, video, etc to the blog…to make it better.
      …but am learning “on the go”

      * please feel free to link to the web site or my various other WordPress blogs at http://craigsblogs.wordpress.com/2013/09/28/craigs-blogs-and-writings/
      should you wish, but I have no time to return links.

      * You may not believe this, but I’m a “total non-techno”, so know, NOTHING about web site design, browser problems, feeds, hosts, servers, overlapping, etc. And lay-out is not one of my strong points. I just write and post on the blog…impulsively! How I got am where I am is a “miracle” . And no one would believe the story (only those who have true faith)! BELIEVE it (first) … then you’ll see it!
      “Believing is seeing.”
      (BEFORE the event)

      * I don’t have a newsletter to subscribe to (Can I end a sentence with a “preppie”?).

      * Will try to post articles from time to time, but all my writings are available at http://www.selfgrowth.com/articles/user/15565 and http://www.ideamarketers.com/library/profile.cfm?writerid=981

      (Personal growth, self help, writing, internet marketing, spiritual, ‘spiritual writings’ (how ‘airey-fairey’), words of inspiration. Please feel free to use

      * Finally, if you want to start a blog and want some tips, you may find my articles on writing at http://www.craigswritingarticles.wordpress.com

      helpful If I could put up a blog, then ANYONE can!

      Just go for it and good luck
