When Bad Things Happen To Mediocre Novels

This isn’t going to be a book review – at all – but I felt compelled to voice my opinion about the last book I read; Precious Blood by Jonathan Hayes. Now, before I continue I would like to point out that reviews and things of the like are, to me, utterly pointless. Why? Because […]

Meanwhile, Under Her Rock……

Yes, I have resurfaced. I didn’t go away (as is evident from my still-live blog) but I needed to take a break from blogging for a while – it really was becoming a bit of a burden and for a while there, I didn’t feel like I had anything constructive to offer anyone. All I […]

Tell Me Your Thoughts…..Are We Ever ‘Too Young’ To Write?

Earlier today, I was scrolling through my Twitter feed and came across this quote that was tweeted by @Shelfbuzz;  “Anyone who is going to be a writer knows enough at 15 to write several novels.” — May Sarton”. It got the wheels in my head spinning frantically. Do we really know enough at the tender […]

Insecure Writers Support Group

Yes. I’m here. I’m alive. Not sure who may have noticed but I’ve been ‘away’ for about a week and a half. And this isn’t due to any reason in particular. Well. One reason….ridiculous waves of insecurity. In the past month, save the posts for the blog, I haven’t looked at my WIP. At all. […]

Inspire Me…

For a while now, I’ve tried to find the time to do a weekly blog post about things that inspire me and, I’m pleased to say, tonight we have the very first one! I’m aiming for these posts to be more spontaneous and ‘in the moment’. I’d like to be able to find something every […]

Goals For The Week

Ta-da…I’m ba-ack!  Well, I didn’t really go anywhere but remember when I said I had a super busy November? Unfortunately something had to give and blogging it was. Only because I havent had the time to sit at my laptop. But things are calmer now, no more weekends away for a little while. So don’t […]

I’m Back! (And, Goals For The Week)

Oh, how I missed everyone! How I missed my blog! I’ve been itching to get back in the swing of things and catch up with everyone’s posts. I did love my extra long weekend break but all I’ve been thinking about is writing. It was good not having my laptop – I didn’t feel pressured to […]

The Sunday Session…What Are Your Thoughts On….

…your writing implement. Is it a computer/laptop/iPad/tablet/whatever else people are typing into these days or a good ol’ fashioned pen/pencil? I’m not too sure if you are aware of this but I am obsessed with pens. I have so many I can’t even begin to tell you. One of the things I really want is a […]

The Sunday Session…What Are Your Thoughts On…

  Traditional publishing. A couple of Sundays ago I asked what everyone thought of self publishing so tonight, I thought I’d flip the coin. There is a YouTube video going round of Anne Rice giving some writing tips (if you haven’t come across it, do yourself a favour and watch – it’s really good!). I […]

Goals For The Week…And Beyond

I can’t believe Saturday has come around so fast. We are officially in holiday mode (well, the kids are) and again, not a lot of writing was done this week. I have, however, made a decision. Drumroll. Ok, so it’s not all that dramatic but every time I look at my current word count and […]
