More thoughts on Writing!

I can’t believe we’re nearly in September. Oh, how time flies.

Things are moving quickly right now. In-between the bustle of life, work, and my latest publication plans, it’s nice to take a breath and revisit my roots in writing.

After some reading and reflection, I have compiled a bite-sized list of writing tips below. Hopefully, these tips work to inspire your next creation, just as they remind me of all that I have learned throughout my career.

If you find any of my tips particularly helpful or have your own writing advice you would like to share please let me know, as I would love to hear from you.

As always, I hope you and your family are staying safe, warm and well.


P.S. For those following the publication trail of my current Work-in-Progress, Falling Pomegranate Seeds: All Manner of Things, I have also included a campaign update as well.


Writing Tips

Writing is one of the greatest forms of discovery and art we have. Throughout my many years of weaving words and conducting writerly research, I have fallen upon many great quotes and opinions. While each author travels a different path to creation, below are the writing tips I know to be true for me, and hope may inspire you:

  • Write uncensored, then uncover the hidden gems in your work worth polishing.
  • Write what you are passionate about. There are stories waiting to be told alive in all of us.
  • Think of your work like a sculptor would their clay: find your material, shape your work, and then refine. Nobody needs to seek perfection within their first attempt, they merely need to keep chipping away.
  • Consider your ideal reader, and facilitate the journey you would like to take them on. At the end of the day, writing is a way to communicate and connect, after all.
  • Plotting need not be more detailed than creating the situation you want your characters to navigate, again and again.
  • Know that each reader will approach your work with a different viewpoint. This is the beauty of fiction and interpretation, and where the true power and magic of your work may lie.

Happy Writing, and I do hope the above advice serves you well.


Work-in-Progress Update

As you may be aware, I recently launched a Pozible campaign to assist with the publication of my latest novel, Falling Pomegranate Seeds: All Manner of Things.

I am truly humbled by the response this campaign has received thus far.

Never in my wildest dreams could I have anticipated the volume of pledges, comments and overall support my crowdfunding attempt would achieve. (We have even made it to the site’s Trending section).

Every pledge  from a few dollars, to a personalised, pre-ordered copy of All Manner of Things goes a long way to funding my novel’s 2021 publication. All I can do is offer my humblest thanks and marvel at the good fortune I have received. From the bottom of my heart, thank you, thank you, thank you.

With 42 days left to fund-raise, my hopes of realising my crowdfunding goal grow closer and closer.
