WORDS FROM THE WRITING DESK

September 2, 2019

I often feel like Greece is on another planet, or at least on a far out part of this one.  Whenever I look out at the headland meeting the sea, I think about the film Jason and the Argonauts and one particular scene where the metal statue of the Colossus Talos awakens...

Well, it’s been a while. Almost 4 months – yikes!  But what better time and place to make a return to blogging than when in Greece in the lovely sunshine?  I have breakfasted well this morning (peaches and banana with gorgeous Greek yoghurt and honey), Keith is away at...

I think I am finally getting my mojo back to what it used to be.  I have not been able to settle to anything for quite a while, and have been a little haphazard with my submitting to say the least.  This was brought home to me last week when a publisher I sent somethin...

Tomorrow it is my fortnightly City Voices meeting.  This is the writing group of which I am chair.  I always have a lot of adventures with them, mostly when June Palmer is away and everything seems to happen at once.  Our guest, who was going to be running a workshop,...

I can’t believe that this time last week I was preparing for the launch of Lisa Blower’s short story collection.  It seems like the blink of an eye.

In 5 weeks’ time I will be in Morocco, enjoying my summer holiday.  With everything that is going on at the moment, it’s great to focus on something that I know will be relaxing and that will help me recharge my batteries. 

I have planned all the books I am go...

Just a short blog post today because I have been away from the writing desk for most of the day.  Yesterday we had my mum over to stay and it was lovely to have her.  She arrived in glorious sunshine and the sun is still out now.  I am always happiest when the sun is o...

As the week comes to a close and the weekend is beckoning, I wanted to focus on the bigger picture of writing.  Too often we get bogged down in smaller things, I know I do.  We give ourselves lots of little tasks to do and beat ourselves up if every one is not done.  A...

Now that 2019 is fully fledged, I can report that I am starting to get into the swing of things at last.  I am starting to get a routine going as regards updating my website, planning my workshops and Facebook Group, and just managing my time really.  I suddenly realis...

When I started DublinWriter Creative Writing Services I knew that things would be slow.  I didn’t expect a mad surge.  What I’ve got has been a nice, steady flow of workshop attendance so far.  Sometimes I have only one or two people, and although that sounds a bit dis...
