My Life in Books

Today I read a really great post by Philip Dodd over at The Domesticated Bohemian.  He described how his early love of reading was sparked by pouring over a children’s encyclopedia and grew from discovering the library. He argues against their closure and I agree that if a library encourages even one child to enjoy […]

NaNoWriMo’s done, what next?

[© Anstice Potts, 06/12/2010] So at the moment I’m enjoying the afterglow of NaNoWrimo. I’m not touching my novel at all during December to give me a much needed mental break and then hopefully I’ll return to it in January with fresh insight.

My Debut Post

You know how sometimes a word or object suddenly seems to crop up all over the place? You see it on the TV, and on the same day it occurs in a book you are reading or someone makes an obscure reference to it in conversation. Well lately “blogging” seems to be everywhere. I read […]
