WRITING FOR PLEASURE AND FOR MONEY…

Lots of sites will pay you for your stories (personal or fiction) especially if you have a very interesting tale to tell. Writing competitions can bring in some good revenue if you pick ones that don’t cost too much to enter. Some of my top choices are –

WISE WORDS…

“Work hard for what you want because it won’t come to you without a fight. You have to be strong and courageous and know that you can do anything you put your mind to. If somebody puts you down or criticizes you, just keep on believing in yourself and turn it into something positive.”

Leah LaBelle

NOVEMBER IS #NNWR (NATIONAL NOVEL WRITING MONTH) AND I’M IN, 50,000 WORDS IN 30 DAYS !…..

crest-05e1a637392425b4d5225780797e5a76

Yes, I’ve gone and done it, I’ve signed up for the NNWR (National Novel Writing Month) which is November to write 50,000 words in the 30 days of November.

All you have to do is to commit to writing 50,000 words in the 30 days of November then fill out your profile and create your novel during October. Choose a home region to get updates on local events from your volunteer Municipal Liaison and then collect some badges to encourage you along the way, and that’s basically it.

Sounds interesting? Well just pop over to NNWR site and commit. I quite assure you if I can do it anyone can. Wish me luck 🙂

IT’S BEEN A WHILE…

I started this particular blog just before the end of 2015 and yet my last post was in January of this year. I’m not sure why I haven’t updated it with my quotes and writing’s throughout this year. I presume I just felt my other two blogs were my priority.

However, it’s a shame for the quotes I’ve used this year to be missed so I am going to try and catch up with them over the next few days and then get back into writing again. Autumn to me always seems to make me feel like I have more time to sit and write. Life in autumn seems slower and more relaxed. I guess when the weather is good you are outside a lot more and have more jobs to do, but I am definitely a winter person and feel so content when I am snuggled up with my rug or duvet and my laptop on my knee for company.

I hope you enjoy the quotes from throughout this year which are a mixture of quotes on health, food, and beauty.
