I decided to post the above photo because I am writing in the evening and I just absolutely adore this picture. The gypsy life has always interested me and I secretly would love to own a decorative caravan just like this one.
Well, I finally feel chuffed that I finally managed to set up my own webpage and blog and while I have the flu too. I have hesitated for quite awhile because I am not an established author as yet but the more I read blogs from authors/writers and publishing/self-publishing websites, it seemed like a logical progression so that prospective Literary Agents, Publishers and also friends can learn more about me.
I came across this small piece on “Handling rejection as a writer” and her advice is golden…Here is the link –
I would love to hear from you via the comments section especially about your experiences as an aspiring writer to published author or in whatever creative endeavour you partake in? Do you write every day or are you a seasonal writer as I know some writers spend a number of months researching and then once they have what they need, they then start writing. Do you then write every day until it is finished? What do you do to keep motivated? What creative writing courses do you recommend? What have you learnt regarding publishers and self-publishers, marketing etc. What are your favourite authors, books, genres?
I celebrate women from all walks of life that can help bring about change? It can begin with young girls and women learning about the amazing women who came before them. I think of women like Margaret Mead, Berthe Morisot, Marie Curie, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and writers like Virginia Woolf, May Sarton, Maya Angelou, Amy Tan, Margaret Forster to Doris Lessing and Joan Didion. There are so many new women writers to admire, too many to mention that inspire me daily to never give up on what I love to do and who knows maybe one day I will be a successful author.
On a side note, always have a notebook handy and never give up on your dreams.
Thank you for reading my first blog as I enjoyed the process. I am not sure what my second blog will be on but I am sure it will capture someone’s interest if not my own.
