Hello and Welcome!
I'm delighted you have taken a moment to visit my site. Today, 25th July, 2016, I met with the designer to discuss the final changes in the ghost writing project I’ve been beavering away at for the last 16 months or so. The design process is slightly different to writing, focusing more on style, format, cover design and a lot of attention to the look and feel of the finished product.
One more round of checks - and one last chance to add or subtract a comma or alter a sentence or change a photograph. I was grateful today when the designer limited me to one more chance because I know I’d keep changing something for the rest of my days if I’m given the time to do it. No matter how many times I write or restructure the same sentence, never changing the meaning behind it, I can’t resist the temptation to try and make it better. But I guess, in the same way as one of my ‘best rejection letters’ pointed out, writing is all about rewriting.
This title is due to be published in September of this year so we are very nearly there!
I’ve had a wonderful four weeks facilitating writing classes in the Cork City Library, Grand Parade. Working with a theme of ‘Chapter One to Bookshop’, the weeks flew by with 21 attendees every week and each writer talented and eager. It was great fun and I’m looking forward to seeing their pieces published!
My books are still being read in all formats and Where There’s A Will is also available in Audio version.
Taking another trip to America later in the year, I’m looking forward to a rest and I’ve promised myself I’ll leave my laptop at home and give writing a break! But already I feel the creative gene begging to be allowed some space in the exciting venues waiting ahead. We’ll see...October’s a while away yet!
My contact details are at the end of the page, I’d be delighted to hear from you. Please feel free to drop a line if the mood takes you. Receiving feedback keeps me (and Buster - see photo of my loyal companion) motivated and at the desk!
Take care ....and for those of you who are writers, keep writing!
