Removing the unwanted bits.

October 29th. 2016

I have now more or less broken the back of my first draft. I still have about 10,000 words to go before reaching my initial target of 80,000. When I have finished the re-write, I expect to raise this figure by about ten percent. If I was still under contract to my last publisher, now defunct, I would have been asked to trim the word count by a considerable margin. As an Indie writer, I can do as I please, although I have to remember that more words does…

I'm truly offended!

I’m offended; flat out, totally affronted, will never get over it  kind of offended. And what was it that brought on this state of affairs? I’ll tell you; the number of people who think that being offended is a right.

Being offended is not a right, it’s not even an issue. If something offends you, move on. If someone says something you don’t like, don’t listen,…

My rules for writing romance

With: J. Arlene Culiner

I have very definite rules when writing romance. My books have to contain the following elements:

·      Realistic heroes and heroines — people who are just like us, and who find themselves on the magic journey of falling in love
·      No business moguls, no billionaires — just intelligent men and women who feel passionately about what they do
·     …

A Patchy Week (Apache?)

October 22nd. 2016

Looking at my diary for the previous seven days, it’s blank. Anyone would think I don’t do anything. I’ve managed to add about two thousand words to my WIP, but have had to interrupt the flow because of hospital appointments, a flu jab, and a trip to Specsavers. We also made a pointless journey to a garden centre to buy something they didn’t stock. We didn’t know that until we arrived. So, stayed there, had lunch and drove home. Sometimes the week is more…

As a storyteller living in the countryside, one who loves the seclusion and now has online forums to advertise; I figure it this way. I love what I do. If anyone else likes what I do I have conquered one obstacle, I have shared my vision with (someone) out there.

I began telling tall stories on paper with a pencil, then my mother picked up an old typewriter from a garage sale, so I spent countless hours learning the keys, making a ton of errors, and…

The Skeletons in our family are marching out of the grave, slowly but with great ambition my book is ending this viscous cycle

Post Trauma: Facing My Pain and Embracing Change , started out as a tool to help me but over the last three years I have found that it is helping many people in my extremely dysfunctional family share their stories of abuse and the pain that it has caused them in their life.

I began sharing my story after realizing I had been addicted to prescription pain pills for the better part of twenty years. I also began to realize that my childhood abuse had left many more scars than I would…

Talk, Talk and a Rainbow Shark

October 15th. 2016

Last Monday, one of our CHINDI authors spent an afternoon in Chichester doing video interviews for each of our members. These were short, five minute interviews which will go on our You tube channel, and subsequently on to our own websites and that of CHINDI. It was simply a video of us reading an extract from our latest book and a description of what the book is about. Five minutes? Gosh, we writers need a load more time than that because we want to talk…
