My 100th blog post!
Fifteen months ago I took a risk and applied for a job knew I wouldn’t get. (I was right, I didn’t). I had very little of the experience required but it sounded like my dream job. 61 more words
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?
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.
