Writing the Future

“Everything you can imagine, is real.” – Pablo Picasso. I received some lovely feedback from the tutor of my creative writing course, today.  My latest assignment was to write a play for radio.  I was particularly looking forward to this course module, for one of my writing ambitions is to write plays for the radio;…

Fictitious Identity

“There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.” – Ernest Hemmingway. Today, I am reflecting on how to develop my writing career.  I am about to start the fifth of fourteen modules in my Diploma in Creative Writing course; which runs for over a year and completes…

The Writer Wheel

This is just a brief post but I thought that any fellow Writers out there might appreciate.  As I sit here at my desk doing some research for my writing, I just came across this idea that I found on Pinterest: It is limited, but it does offer quick access to broader vocabulary and themes. …

Reflective Thinking in Action

I am reflecting, today, on my passion for writing.  Writing is a significant part of my daily life and, although the writing that I share is purely on this blog, I have stacks of short stories, plays and poetry that I have never shared.  I simply enjoy keeping that for myself.  Writing is something that…
