Look, there's only one way to get better at anything, and that's by doing it a LOT. Earlier this year I wondered whether I could write 10 000 words in a month, so I signed up for the 10k challenge on What Inspires Your Writing and I made the target, actually I wrote even more than that! I needed the encouragement and motivation of the challenge to keep me going. Now here's another one a bit less intimidating and achievable, and so worthwhile trying if you'd like to improve your writing skills. Go ON, take that leap!

I am really excited and pleased by the amount of submissions I received for the Moon Ate the Dark Writing Prompt Challenge. I intend to post all of the submissions on Brave and Reckless. 546 more words
A grand bit of craic: my writing prompt submission was posted earlier this evening over on Brave and Reckless' Blog. TANKS, I'm deloited!! (Do you think that living in Ireland has rubbed off on me a little bit after thirteen years?
An award-winning writer tells all: "These paragraphs have made me fall in love with writing the book"
For nearly a month I have been holding something very special to me close to my heart. I won an award but I haven't been bold enough to show it off. Either a) I'm a little nervous that if I do someone will come and knock me back into my place. I think that's indicative of a deeper problem. Or b) I've tried to wear a cloak of humility and discovered it's shrunk a little and now I want to cast it aside, for which I hope you will forgive me. Or c) Timothy Pike has written this post in 'What Inspires Your Writing' and I now feel brave enough to share it. It feels good to be proud of something I have done, now I would love for others to enjoy my story. A huge thank you to Timothy for sharing this and creating the ChapterBuzz challenge, as well as to all those who voted for me.
