The Writer – A Short Description

So as I sit preparing to write … my words are failing me. My mind is failing me. My heart is pleading with me …… ‘for the love of God – write something!!’ Fingers at the ready, resting on the keyboard…yet so very still… And my words fail me. And my mind fails me. And […]

Reading, Writing and Stephen King

So here we are, post time of the week 🙂 I hope everyone has had a fulfilling week full of words. I know I haven’t. Not the best start to the year, huh? Well I won’t go as far as saying that, I’m not going to start getting too hard on myself. I know for […]

Tell Me Your Thoughts…Should Writers Stick To Only One Genre?

Or can they hop between horror and romance, sci-fi and gothic?  Have you gone from one genre to another? Can writers get typecast – much like actors playing a role for years in a row? Can a good writer get away with writing anything purely because they are, in fact, a good writer? I know […]

The Sunday Session….What Are Your Thoughts On….

…writing being hereditary. I did a post on this a few months ago (you can find it here) but I thought about digging the topic up again because I’ve been thinking – is writing is in the blood? Does it pass down from person to person (maybe skipping a generation or two)? Case in point – my […]

Goals For The Week

  And so we meet again 🙂 What a busy week – blogging and otherwise. I’ve had a busy writing week too which was one of the goals. This time last week, I had culled a couple of scenes, slashed and removed chunks of story which shrunk my word count down to around 9400K, but […]

7 Day Writing Challenge – Day 5; Dear Me….Write A Letter To Myself

  This one was interesting seeing as I had to write the letter at the start of the day but as if I was writing it at the END of the day. I felt a little silly sitting there in my pj’s writing about what a constructive day I had had, almost predicting what I […]

The Sunday Session – What Are Your Thoughts On…

……Spellcheck. What do you think? Is this useful tool making us lazy? Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away we had to rely on our Collins or Websters Dictionaries. We actually (read: in real life, in real time) had to proof read our work very carefully to find the typos. And now? A little click on […]

Goals For The Week

  Saturday is upon us once more. This week has flown by and I apologise to all my lovely fellow bloggers that I have not been able to stop by and read your posts (I did try the other night but I fell asleep with my laptop still on!). End of the week is always […]

Lucky 7 MeMe

Today I am going to do something I’ve never done before…… dun dun dun…… Vikki over at The View Outside has graciously tagged me and at first I thought…hmmmm after yesterday’s post about all of my writing insecurities and the lack of progress of my work in progress, maybe I’m not qualified to participate. My second […]
