Have Your Say: What Blog Series Do You want To See?

Guess what? I’m already planning my third blog series of the year. I’m only half way through posting the first series, Prompt Me, but I am a person who likes to prep and schedule ahead of time.

I have a few ideas that I’m batting around, but it occurred to me that the best people to ask about what content they want to see are my followers.

Is there a specific post you like to see on my blog i.e. my writing exercise posts, or more bookish posts. Do you enjoy more posts about my own books, or writerly tip shares?

Get in touch and let me know. I would love to tailor my posts accordingly.

Pet Peeve

musings(1)

My pet peeve has been slowly growing of late. So much so that I decided to blog about it. The stem of my annoyance is articles, blog posts, writing books etc telling me what way is the right way to write. Let me explain: I appreciate informative pieces that advise writers of a certain style ie plotters or pantsers on some techniques to help with the process, but I do not like posts that say, Why you MUST plot your novel! or Why you should NEVER plot your novel. Or even worse…Do You Have Bad writing techniques?

Urgh! Please! Writing is a creative art form and with all creative artforms there is no one way and definitely no right way to do it. I’m a pantser, and although that is how I roll, I do not expect every one to be comfortable with this drafting style. If I write a piece about my writing process, I hope it would be informative, but not dictatorial.

“There are no laws for the novel. There never have been, nor can there ever be.”
—Doris Lessing

My advice to all writers is to keep getting those words down and stories finished in the way you feel is most comfortable and enjoyable to you as an artist.
