Authors Electric December blog – Resolutions

My Authors Electric blog for December is up!

“As this is the last of my AE blogs for 2017, I have been casting around for a suitable topic to sum up the past 12 months.  New year resolutions sprang to mind but they can be such a mine field when you make your own choice a matter of public record.”

People Are Watching… #authorselectric

Today I am blogging over at Authors Electric about who notices us (in a non-conspiracy sense 🙂  )

Eyes Are Always On You by Jan Edwards

If you ask writers why they write most will say tell you it is a compulsion, or, as Terry Pratchett once said, ‘writing is the most fun you can have by yourself.’ If we manage to make a few bucks in the process all the better. If we come to be recognised as a writer of some merit, better still, but to do that the writing needs a reader.  So how do we get noticed?… To read the rest click here.

 

Authors Electric : Missing H #writing #authorselectric

“As I type the temperature outside is around 26c, which I quite like, generally speaking, but will concede that it makes it harder to concentrate on the jobs at hand.

Downsizing

“This month has been all about downsizing, which for 90% of writers that I know is a slow and painful parting of the ways with a small section of their book mountain at very least.  The Edwards-Coleborn household is attempting to relocate to somewhere easier to manage and  one of the inevitable consequences is that some of our carefully amassed volumes are going to have to go – but which tomes will be destined for the chop?”
