It's that time of the month again... welcome, IWSG-ists!



Hello and welcome, my dearies!

How have you been? I've been quite well, but busy busy busy busy... I don't know what it is about spring, but there's been something going on all the time.

Mostly something that did not involve myself and a pen, or myself and a keyboard, or myself and anything remotely resembling writing implements. Now there's something to feel insecure about - I have not, in fact, written anything significant at all since the end of NaNoWriMo last year.

I'm not sure I still can. I do have all these stories in my head - they're still there - but I am more and more doubtful that they'll ever see the light of day, or the ink on paper...you get the gist of it, I'm sure.

There, that's my major insecurity of the month. How are you guys and girls doing? Have you been writing lately or has your Muse taken a holiday? Are you suffering the dreaded Blank Page Phobia, perhaps? Or is all well in your writerly world?

If you have time between writing chapters and torturing characters, please do go say hi to a couple of other Insecure Writers. You can find them, along with the wonderful hosts, on the Insecure Writer's Support Group website HERE.

All the best,

Insecure Writers in February...

www.insecurewriterssupportgroup.com



Hello and welcome to my blog, my dearies!!


This is the first time I'm writing anything this month, and that's more than enough to be insecure about. At least for me it is.... *sigh*

I'm not quite sure what's wrong with me but I'm not quite THERE these days, in a writerly sense. I can't seem to get my mind in the game or on the game or even onto the sidelines.

What do you do when the muse just doesn't strike? I've tried going for a run, walking, sitting in a coffee and just staring at people, but it just isn't getting me anywhere.

Where I am right now...

Hello my dearies!

I just wrote a blog post... but not any blog post! This post is my first for the Relentless Writers Blog!! I'm part of the Relentless Writers group since we all shared the NaNoWriMo experience in 2014. We've been sharing writing experiences ever since, and have decided to share what we've figured out or are puzzled about with you, our dearest readers! MY dearest readers, which means YOU RIGHT THERE!  

Go on over and have a look....


Let me know what you think : )

Sunday Quote - How To Write a Damn Good Thriller




"Villains (...) are self-centred creeps." (p. 41) 
I don't know about you, but I absolutely adore reading books on writing. I think I'd be reading them even if I wasn't writing myself - it's just so very interesting to see how stories are built, how they can be constructed (and deconstructed) one element at a time. James Frey is excellent at explaining how stories work, why they work, and - more importantly - when and why they do not work. I've read a few of his books and they are all brilliant (How to write a damn good...). If you like reading books about writing, these are definitely a good bet!
