It's funny how when things don't go according to plan, what was intended for you gets delivered instead. I'm getting nowhere fast on my work in progress (WIP), My Absent Sister, despite thorough planning and research. I  know my characters inside out. I had the notorio...

Things I've pondered over and found have worked for me. 

1. Work at something you love.

Yes, I've had my share of soul destroying jobs including general dogsbody in a hairdressers, and working in a well known Stationary chain. If you can find a job / career that yo...

I was in New York last June with a best friend and what an amazing city! One of the places we visited was the 9 / 11 memorial.

So, I have an idea of my characters and storyline but I'm still  way off actually typing a single word. I tend to do all my planning by hand in notebooks, though there are tools such as Scrivener that you might like to use. Personally I like the feel of  notebooks and...

On my Instagram account, where I follow many amazing writers, there are has been interesting threads on how people write and plot their work. So on here I thought I would go through how I normally plan my novel. From the picture that inspired the initial spark, to all...

Using Social Media, one way or another, is a big part of our lives. So I was surprised when a posting appeared on one of my timeline's that essentially said,

    "I've no time for social media, I'm too busy writing."

I have to say I was shocked and the comment got...
