One Year On ...

Happy New Year!

I can hardly believe that a year has passed since my first post.

Are you making any resolutions? I gave up making resolutions long ago but occasionally I get the urge to think about one every now and again and there’s one that keeps coming up.

Write more.

Not necessarily more words, although that always helps – it’s easier to edit a page full of words than a blank page – but to lose that inhibition that I think holds writers back at various times during their writing career. I've heard some writers comment that a glass of wine helps get the creative flow going but I'm not sure my finger-keyboard coordination will stand up to alcoholic influence! So I'll go with the wise words of William W Purkey:-

"You've gotta dance like there's nobody watching,
Love like you'll never be hurt,
Sing like there's nobody listening,
And live like it's heaven on earth."

So here's wishing you all a very happy, healthy, successful 2016. XX


  1. Happy New Year, Sarah! I love that quote by Wm W Purkey - if only we could remember that all year round! As for resolutions, like you I aim to write more in 2016 but also to focus on quality above quantity in an effort to stand out from the crowd - if you know what I mean ;) xx

  2. Happy New Year, Melissa. Enjoy your writing and I look forward to hearing how it's going next time we catch up. xx
