A Flash Of Colour In A Gloomy World

Thought I’d do something a little different for today’s post and share some photos.  I take inspiration from two awesome bloggers that I follow, Clare at A Suffolk Lane and Linda at Walkin’ Writin’ Wit & Whimsy.

The photos they share always draw me in and I love seeing the world from different locations.  As a nature lover, I get such great joy from seeing their photographs.

Day of the Imprisoned Writer

Today, the 15th November is the Day of the Imprisoned Writer.

It is an international day that is recognised, annually, as a time when we shine a light on and support writers who have been imprisoned for standing up to those who attack their rights and freedoms of expression, who resist, who fight back with words, against those who would repress basic human rights.

This day was first marked as the Day of the Imprisoned Writer in 1981, (the year of my birth), by PEN International Writers in Prison Committees.

How I Am Tackling My TBR List

Every reader I know has an ever-growing To Be Read list. With the ease of ebook publishing, now more than ever can you get your hands on cheap, easily stored books.

We all joke about the mountain of books, both digital and physical, that we continue to build without reading.

But as a writer, I want to actually read the books I have, not just collect them. After all, I want people to read MY books when they come out rather than have them languishing on someone’s TBR list.

So, I needed a plan!

There’s so Little Time – a Hard Truth

This wasn’t the blog post I had planned to write today. But even with all my planning, sometimes I’m just taken over to do something different.

I’ve been thinking about this a lot over the last 10 months. The hiatus I took in May give me even more time to think about time and what we are all doing with it.
