Shhh! I’m in the cupboard, don’t tell anyone.

How can we keep working on our writing goals, while having the children home during the holidays?

Are you finished yet?

Some years ago I announced I was going to write a novel. (What a dumb idea that was!). After that fateful day, I received an almost daily reminder of my complete worthlessness and ineptitude as I plodded ever forward, not working on my novel. In fact, doing everything I could, cleaning, painting, a study ofContinue reading “Are you finished yet?”

The Devil’s Cry

A bit late with this one. It’s official. My children believe that I live to clean, sweets have been re-classed as a breakfast food and communication only comes in the form of hitting each other with a fake, rubber horse head mask…(don’t ask!)

You tried them on in the shop and gloried at how they looked. ‘Wooden Shoes’ by Bill Longshaw, courtesy of freedigitalphotos.net You get them home, get on your matching dress/jeans/lederhosen. Place them on yourContinue reading “Why perspectives are like shoes.”

How do you do it?

With pen and paper? Straight to screen? With a sparkler…or perhaps an Enigma machine for the extremely paranoid? Each writer has their own preferred method of working. Stephen King writes longhand onto yellow legal pads. J K Rowling writes longhand then transfers it to screen – editing as she goes. George R. R. Martin writesContinue reading “How do you do it?”
