“It’s easy once you get started.” “Just make it up – how is that difficult?” “Write anything you like.” Ever heard these reassuring phrases before? Perhaps when you’ve asked people how to start writing something, or improve it, or what makes for good creative fiction. Fat lot of good they do when you’ve asked, “How… Continue reading Get Writing – Starting Fresh
I’m sure I must have written about this before now, but I’m going to do it again. Partly because it’s important to me, partly because I can write about it, and a lot to help any budding writers, poets, artists, sculptors, musicians etc out there who get down about “not being serious about their art”.
