You write because you care about writing and you care about what you write.

I’ve met so many people, heard so many stories that have made me sit up and say WOW. Really! You survived that? How? Genuinely I am in awe. Though of course I never write about them. Their stories are not mine to tell. But what ever you have a gut feeling to write about, then write it!

Trying to decide whether you story idea is a good one or not, is another matter. There is no way of absolutely being sure if the idea is a good one until you try it on for size. Of course, it is said, originality is key, especially if you are trying to sell your story – publishers, agents etc., are generally looking out for fresh ideas that jump off the page. To be frank – being original is hard to do. However, putting a different slant on an age old story is not without merit.

Whatever you do. Please keep writing – and if you’re not happy with it, keep it safely tucked away for another day. It is important, you wrote it after all, so you must have cared about it at some time. If you would like any more information or share please don’t be afraid to drop a note in the message box and I will try to respond asap!  Take care.

  1. I think this is one of the most vital information for me.
    And i’m glad reading your article. But should remark on some general things, The
    site style is ideal, the articles is really great : D.
    Good job, cheers

  2. Good post. I learn something totally new and challenging on websites I stumbleupon every day.
    It will always be exciting to read through content from other writers and practice a little something from other sites.

  3. fantastic submit, very informative. I wonder why the opposite experts of this sector do not realize
    this. You must continue your writing. I’m sure, you have a great readers’
    base already!

    1. I think someone got a bit upset about the title. I’m glad you didn’t. My aim is to ensure the writer knows their subject, rather than just doing a heap of research. Research is great, but it can leave the writing a little cold (this is just a view).

  4. When I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment
    is added I receive 4 emails with the same comment. Perhaps there
    is a way you can remove me from that service?

    1. Yes, in the main they really are. Thank you for sharing! I did have to take my blog down for a while. I was horrified to see vile posts that were dark and totally nothing to do with writing. So thank you again, for being one of the great ones!
      Oh, and can I be cheeky Cerys – would you consider sharing this link with your friends? It would be awesome if you did.

      thank you.

  5. Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My
    iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!

  6. Hi there! This is my 1st comment here so I just
    wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I really
    enjoy reading through your articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums
    that deal with the same subjects? Thank you so much!

  7. obviously like your web-site but you have to take a look at the
    spelling on quite a few of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I
    in finding it very bothersome to tell the reality nevertheless I’ll certainly come back again.

    1. Oops, spelling mistakes? Apologies! I rarely get the time to proof read because I’m in the midst of writing another novel and that’s taking the priority at the moment. My editor is asking for my galley.
      However, I take note – and will try to do better. (here comes a shrug and an oh dear).

  8. Hello! I could have sworn I’ve been to this site before but after browsing
    through some of the post I realized it’s new to
    me. Anyways, I’m definitely delighted I found it and I’ll be
    bookmarking and checking back often!

  9. Hey would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using?
    I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must
    say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a reasonable price?
    Many thanks, I appreciate it!

  10. Heya i’m for the primary time here. I came across this
    board and I in finding It truly useful & it helped me out a lot.
    I’m hoping to present one thing again and help others such as you aided me.

  11. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find
    this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and very broad for me. I am
    looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get
    the hang of it!

  12. Hey there! This post could not be written any better!
    Reading this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept
    talking about this. I will forward this write-up to him.
    Fairly certain he will have a good read. Thank you for sharing!
