What I’m writing – To call myself an author

I think of the people around me as authors but the kicker is that in my head, I am not an author. I am a dabbler, a drafter, a scrawler. What I do is so far removed from what real authors do its, well, it’s unreal. Until I can say I have acheieved something with […]

What I’m writing – Getting back to it

I am NOT doing Camp NaNoWriMo. There. I said it. Not doing it. It does mean I have all this free April-time though. What I’ve learned is that I now have time to go back and revisit some of the stuff I haven’t finished. One of the most prominent pieces I haven’t finished is my […]

What I’m writing – Just write

You’ve sat down at your computer. You’ve done all that finger clicky bullshit people do on the TV when they’re about to do something creative (do you do that? Really?

What I’m Writing: Missing a goal

I can’t believe our linky is finally live after a month of planning. While Maddy is hosting this week, I get to gush about all the hard work she’s done. What a week! Maddy finalised the badge design and worked in some words to point people in the right direction. We tweeted like mad while […]
