Good Monday to you! Isn't life amazingly beautiful now the children are back at school? More time to write, yahoo! I'm re-reading Sylvia Plath's journals so here's an inspiring quote from her.
“Hurl yourself at goals above your head and bear the lacerations that come when you slip and make a fool of yourself. Try always, as long as you have breath in your body, to take the hard way–and work, work, work to build yourself into a rich, continually evolving entity.”
I like the hurling, not so much the lacerations, but am with her in spirit this September as I'm editing, editing, editing. And at last have a desk to write at! It's nothing like the photo above, not yet. No, think wooden, think tiny:)
I'll be interviewing Louise Phillips on the 9th, until then you can follow her blog tour for her debut novel Red Ribbons Here I've just finished it, its an amazing page turner, with real psychological insight, lyrical writing, wicked pacing and heart.
(Some interesting awards and competitions to hurl ourselves at here: cinnamon press competitions) Happy writing :)
