Today’s guest blogger is a bit of an enigma.

We know Ari Meghlen’s avatar from her Twitter site as she shares daily questions for us to consider under the hashtag #TheMerryWriter. She is working on several books yet hasn’t been published. But she has flash fiction pieces on her website, as well as a wealth of articles about writing.

We also know that Ari loves writing fantasy, loves blogging, is an archer, a movie-lover, a sculptor and a bad card player.

I was nervous when I asked her to write a guest blog because I never feel comfortable direct messaging someone I don’t know well. I was really happy Ms Meghlen said yes.


I want to say a big thanks to Kevin for inviting me onto his writing blog, I truly appreciate this opportunity.  Here are some of my tips:

A while ago I had  been trying to get some great blogging writers to guest post here on Planet Simon and last week I got a great surprise Ari Meglen sent me a surprise guest post. I was dead chuffed!

Anyway, Ari has some great words about how writers see other writers and… read the post, it’s great stuff! Go and look at her site and see what she’s up to, thanks again Ari!

Keeping the Rabble in Line: How to stick to one story

A Writer’s Life

I always knew I was meant to be a writer.  Even in those very early years when I struggled to read and was way behind, regarding reading levels compared to other children my age.  After all, my inability to read well never stopped the ideas from coming.

While I loved to draw and was not bad at it, art never seemed enough to give all these ideas life!  So, writing was the only way to go.

A Rabble of Chattering Ghosts

I have been blessed (and cursed) with always having ideas.  Any time I suffered writers block, it was usually due to mental burn-out…
