How to write multiple stories at once.

Or, at least, how I do it. Okay, not literally at the same time. I found that I have done this since I began writing seriously, while I was working on edits with my first novel, I was writing another. But editing one and writing one are two different things. On many occasions, I am writing... Continue Reading →

Bust out of the writing mold

Aren’t you tired of reading, or even seeing, the same old formula? The Hero always wins, the guy gets the girl. Two people met, they fall in love, they have a big fight, they make up and ride off into the sunset.   If you read the structures, and plot outlines, and writing for mainstream,...

Short Story – Last Goodbyes

I am not going to blog tomorrow as per usual – but instead leave this here for the week. It’s an important share to many who have fought, are fighting, or have lost to cancer.

Macmillan5In 2015 my good friend and fellow author, Ian D. Moore invited members of our FB writing group the IASD (see www.indieauthorsupportanddiscussion.com) to write and contribute original stories for an anthology of short stories on the theme of Relationships in all their many and varies forms. The idea was born out of the author’s personal loss of a much loved close relative to cancer.

Many of the authors, both in this edition and the forthcoming 2018 Macmillan anthology have had personal experience of cancer, either coming to terms with it personally and/or via friends and family.

Even as I post this story, Ian D. Moore and a number of Indie authors are busy editing and formatting the contributions for the 2018 edition, also in aid of Macmillan cancer.  In addition to the adult contributions, a number of younger have also contributed to the book.

Needless to say, I will be blogging…

Shameless Plug & FREEBIE

My next book is in editing! It will be published before April, I can feel it. I planned a novel but it ended as a novella, and I didn't want to over fluff it, therefore I am leaving it as is. My readers will be thrilled with that news, as it's fast-paced, thrilling, and chilling! ... Continue Reading →

The Cat's Write

This is a guest post by Theresa Jacobs.

I was46 yrs. old, working in retail, and had squashed my desire to write for twenty plus years. I was beginning to question my life, or more so, my lack of ambition in 2016. One day I woke up and said to myself: “Life is pointless if I am not happy with who I am.”  

My new life as a writer was born that day.

I did have a dusty, twenty-year-old manuscript, housed on floppy discs – for those who may not know, this is an outdated mode of saving files.

I have a tendency to jump straight from the frying pan into the fire. I took these files, and without re-reading the book, or doing any editing, I decided to upload it to Amazon. That was not a brilliant idea. I just put a rough draft out there…
