Another Adventure Begins!

So, remember I went to Belfast last Friday to meet the editors at a publishing house? Well, yesterday I got the call, and it was a “Yes”! The aim will be for a collection of my stories to be published in October, so the next few months are going to be very exciting 🙂 .

Today I applied to joined The Society Of Authors . The brilliant thing about this organisation is that it supports authors in a variety of ways (including offering help with reviewing contracts).

I feel at the start of something very auspicious. A whole new road lies ahead, and I’m itching to get my adventure boots on and to start walking.

I’ll keep you posted.

I am just going outside and may be some time.


Adventures 284 – 289 ~ Immerse Myself In Writing My Book

Well, listen. I know I said I wouldn’t be back until the 20th, but I’m breaking “radio silence” now because the blog post on the 20th would be so long that I decided it might be better to give you an interim report before then.

I know I also said that I would edit all my video-blogs into one film, but if I did that, it would be a full feature-length film! So I’ve decided to post each vlog separately (with the exception of the 5th and 6th day which is edited into one film) in this post 🙂 .

So, here’s how it’s been going ….. (there are 5 videos in total 🙂 )

On Day 1, I learn how to create drop capitals in Word

On Day 2, I learn how to format a book for self-publishing

On Day 3, I get clear about the purpose of my book (and suffer a bout of “writers’ block”)

On Day 4, I learn all about the history of haiku poetry

On Day 5, I seem to be back in my flow … only to realise on Day 6 that I need to get some perspective (and so I take a ginko walk)

I am just going outside and may be some time.
