Writing and editing and critting

Why am I writing yet more thoughts on this? Because I’ve got another short story in for publication. This one I had no time so I ignored my rules and submitted without having it edited. This is something I deeply regret, truly. Although they’re still publishing it and sent it back to me with some structural edits. […]

Writing, and writing, and writing…

It’s another of those articles because I haven’t the brain space to find something about books and what other people are writing. It’s all about me and my degree today. I’m now one third of the way through my Bachelor of Arts in Professional and Creative Writing. As they say, practice makes perfect, although in […]

I bin writting

I feel almost like a real writer this week. I’ve been doing lots of writing for uni and for the magazine, Wordly, put out by Deakin Writers. Don’t get me wrong, I need to do lots of writing this trimester, there’s good reason there. Let me ramble for yet another Friday and talk about what I’m studying […]

It ain’t here

Last night was the launch of the magazine that has my short story. I know you’ve been waiting and waiting but there isn’t an online version of it and I’ve been asked not to share it until after the next magazine comes out. In three months time after the launch of the next issue I’l be able […]

Publishing, interviewing and what not

By the time you read this I’ll be hard at work being interviewed. What writing secrets they feel they’re going to get from me is beyond my comprehension. I’ve seen some of the questions and one of them has a non-answer while the other has a totally silly answer. You’ll see more when they put it on […]

Haunted Zine Launch

You know those times when you neglect to take your own advice? That’s me, today. I tell everyone when they’re blogging to make a schedule and stick to it but today I completely forgot about it and so I’m running slightly late. It’s not the end of the world, but it is rather annoying. Last week I […]

NaNoWriMo 2016

Today I’m paying tribute to those people doing NaNoWriMo, those who are hitting their milestones and are actually on track to get to 50,000 words by the 30th November. I started well but have been waylaid by little things. We were away on day 1 but I didn’t let that stop me. The OH went […]

Writing

My current book is My Brother Jack by George Johnston. It’s partially autobiographical, with a lot of it set in Melbourne between the wars. I’m so used to reading about other places, mostly in the northern hemisphere that I find it a little weird to be reading about a place I know so well. Our protagonist […]

What’s your style?

The thing about doing a uni degree such as mine is that it gives you the chance to experiment with writing styles and to find where you’re most comfortable and where your skills really lie. They give you the chance to write in many different types and as of this trimester I’m going for it […]

Trimester 2

I feel like I’m pregnant again with all this talk of trimester 1, 2 and 3, and it could feel a bit like childbirth in 2019 when I finish and have a qualification but it’s just uni jargon and I need to wrap my head around so many new concepts so what’s one more in the general scheme […]
