Writing

ddd
Oh no!

Many of you will know that I recently stopped paid employment to focus on writing, along with keeping the garden in order and looking after Ben and the hens.  I’ve joined up with SpecFicNZ to help keep me inspired, and use Duotrope to keep track of the pieces I’ve been writing.

I try to write most days of the week, but best laid plans and all that…

One of the first things I wrote, The Tobacco Tin, was awarded second prize in the World War I Centenary Competition run by SpecFicNZ in March of this year.

Since then I’ve been working away, trying to perfect my writing techniques, etc.  I’ve always written, just not very constructively.

If anything else gets accepted, I’ll post a link on this site.

  1. Awesome that you are writing. I imagine your environment is inspirational and conducive to writing. I look forward to you sharing your successes. Are you still doing some painting too? Following your dream – fantastic. Joy

    1. Thanks Joy!

      It’s hard to fit everything in to a given day, but yes, I’m trying to paint as well… it’s a bit of a juggle of things, actually. Especially with the weather getting warmer and the days longer – it’s hard to resist working in the garden on a good day.
