Happy New Year

Scottish Highlands

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.

  1. Happy New Year, Tom! Lovely photo 🙂 I’ve just read Watership Down – surprised how good it is! I like Tess too but generally I’m not a massive Hardy fan. Let us know how you got on…
