I’m afraid I’m late posting as I completely forgot what day of the week it was. Before I get onto my views on originality, a quick writing update. I’m off work for the summer holidays and I’ve been planning some short stories for a few anthology calls that close at the end of August.
Category: CREATIVE HOBBIES
I didn’t work on any writing projects last month as I was tied up with the Blogging from A-Z Challenge. I have, once again, lost my writing mojo.
First, I must apologise for missing last month’s IWSG post. Life has been hectic lately and, as always when I’m beginning to feel overwhelmed, my hobbies are the first things I have to drop in order to get the essentials done.
It’s been a while since I joined in with the WEP challenge but I really want to get back into the habit. This piece was originally going to be prose but somehow it kept wanting to turn itself into a poem.
Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that you’re starting the year happy and healthy. After a difficult couple of months, I’m excited by the fresh start that the New Year brings.
My short story “Beneath the Roots” will be featured in the anthology Fall Into Fantasy 2021, coming September 21st from Cloaked Press.
This month the IWSG asks: Are you a risk-taker when writing? Do you try something radically different in style/POV/etc. or add controversial topics to your work?
This month the IWSG asks: Everyone has a favourite genre or genres to write. But what about your reading preferences? Do you read widely or only within the genre(s) you create stories for? What motivates your reading choice?
