I have to admit guilt is getting the better of me, especially at the moment. Life has been super busy and sadly there's been a few challenges at home that have kept my head out of the game. Since finishing my Masters (back at the end of September last year) I have only completed one … Continue reading Slow Progress!

I passed my Masters degree in Creative Writing … Continue reading It’s Time!
Ahead of Schedule!
So I have just finished writing Chapter Eight of my story, a week ahead of schedule. I'm so happy (and relieved) especially as, at the time of writing, I wasn't entirely sure where I was going with it. In writing this chapter I've opened up a new strand to the story, an unexpected one which … Continue reading Ahead of Schedule!

I have always shied away from Poetry because sometimes I find it hard … Continue reading Pleasantly Surprised!
I am a Writer!
Today marks the first day I have said out loud to someone that "I am a Writer" and I want to share my experience with you. I hope you don't mind! I went to the opticians today with trepidation because, ultimately, I know my eyesight has deteriorated with age. I'm not gonna lie to you, … Continue reading I am a Writer!
