She finally did it…

Taken on a local walk

Welcome to my new blog; a quiet place for me to reflect on my life as a writer.

As you probably know; I gave up a corporate lifestyle to concentrate on my writing. To do this, I’ve taken a few steps that probably most people would like to take, but haven’t yet had the opportunity. I’m one of the lucky ones.

  1. I’ve moved to the countryside for as much fresh sea air as possible
  2. I’ve become self sufficient – this means growing vegetables, fishing, making stuff.
  3. I started my own social media business – this means I get to hang out at literary festivals and call it work.

In short, I’m having a generally great time, with a few bumps along the way. Pop back from time to time, and you’ll see what I mean…

    You know ER, I fell in love with you in the first moments of meeting you, (to clarify, in a none sexual way). To me, you are one of life’s gems, that I had the privileged to meet & be-friend. Even if, I don’t see you very often, I know you are there, with your amazing laughter & smile, which shows me, what a magnificent human being you are.

    I wish you always LOVE & the very best in all your endevours, for you are such a beautiful human being.

    Love always,

    Hey there, I don’t know who you are but I came across you on Twitter so you’re now on my Google Reader feed. Best of luck with all your writing endevors and BIG CLAP for giving up the corporate ratrace to focus on your writing!

      Yep – the gorgeous scenery is partly why I moved here. Mind you – your original suggestion of going to Grove House certainly played a part. Guess I owe you big time!

      Hi Mary Jo; how are things going for you? Thank so much for the support. I think what I found most useful at the Inkwell courses was the great friends that you could meet; and the budding talent, of course. Thank you so much for stopping by and make sure you stay in touch. Would love to hear what you’re up to these days.
