The not writing part of writing.

Today I've been really busy. I've done some more work on proofreading "Master of Trades" the final part of the"Dragonfire Trilogy" my books for 8-12 year olds and anyone else who is missing a certain boy wizard.  In a week or so it should be out there on Amazon Kindle, hopefully without a single clumsy phrase, misplaced comma, or typo.

I've also been reading "Woman's Weekly Fiction Special". Last week I went to a number of workshops run by Della Galton, Jane Wehnham-Jones and Gaynor Davies on what sort of stories they are looking for and immersing myself in the magazine is part of my research.

When I'd finished that, I turned my attention to the book I'm reviewing. An hour or so on that and I think I'll call it a day.

All these activities are part of a writer's life and I know they must be done, even though they stop me from doing what I really love.

There won't be any time for the actual writing and a writer should write something every day. So perhaps this is where blogging comes in.

Short sharp, self-contained pieces that help keep my writer's muscles flexed and ready.
