Welcome to my blog in this new year of 2012. My accompanying graphic is a photo I took when holidaying in my favourite place in the world, the Scottish Highlands. Throughout last year I supported my posts with my own artwork so I thought in a slight departure I’d use a series of photos from holiday destinations as this year gets underway.
I haven’t been on here for a couple of weeks but I have been busy. I’ve got two short stories underway and I have one entered into an international competition. I have already started work on the edit of my NaNoWriMo novel, ‘Hawk, A Human Hunter’.
I am presently assisting a fellow writer and good friend of mine to set up her first attempt at a blog. I know how difficult I found it since I’ve only been blogging myself for a year. Progress on that project will come as and when she wishes to broadcast her efforts. For a while at least I believe it’s right that she keeps her writing under wraps. I think the finished product will be worth a visit so I’ll be plugging it on here.
Reading material at the moment for me is a continuation into the ‘classics’. I am presently reading ‘Tess of the d’Urbervilles’ by Thomas Hardy. I will in time write a review so that can wait. I now have a reasonable collection of classics lined up so I hope to learn what all the fuss has been about regarding certain books.
