Welcome to my very first blog for 2016. After a bit of a re assessment of my blog, looking at blogging101 and consulting Blogging Guru, Amanda Kendle, my aim is to get this blog more focussed and streamlined and hopefully easy to follow.
Amanda Kendle, with an ongoing series of workshops and a blogging consultancy business, has been blogging for over a decade (one of the pioneers in the field). After consulting with the guru, I picked up some helpful tips.
To clarify, this blog is essentially about writing and art with some travel posts thrown in. It’s about writing, that is anything to do with writing as in authors, books, publishing, book clubs, book reviews and even films.
It’s also the link to our local writers group, South Side Quills, in the south west of WA. South Side Quills has been going strong for six years now. 2016 is the seventh year – wow!
More recent Quills member and prolific writer, Carol McDowell was a winner last year with her short story ‘Bringing Home the Ashes’ in this year’s published collection of shorts – Lost Boy & Other Stories. published by Margaret River Press.
Another major milestone for Quills will be the publication of an anthology of works to be published later this year. More details about that in future posts.
I look forward to a year full of creativity and may you do what you love and lots of it.
