Blog

When I decided to become a freelance writer I realised very quickly that I would have to practice; building my confidence and finding my own ‘voice’ was vital and there are few writers that can sit down and write something fit for publication without many re-writes.

Calling my blog ‘No wriggling out of writing’  was an acknowledgement of all the times in years past when I have sat down to work creatively and then found every reason in the world to put the kettle on, sit down with a cup of tea and write the shopping list instead. This time round things were going to be different. And they have been. More than 150 posts later I am still thinking of new (quite random) topics on which to write and new ways to provoke thought, express frustration or share my view of the world. 

I have built up quite a readership and am proud to have found a tiny cramped seat in the back row of the world of litblogging – posts about John Keats and the role of poetry in our lives are some of my ‘most-read’. I have met some fantastic people and have contacts out there in the ‘blogosphere’ who will support my work when I close my eyes and dive, trembling, into the world of publication.
