Julie's Quest

Hello, and welcome to my blog. My blog is about the trials and tribulations of writing, where we celebrate successes and commiserate our near misses. We tell it like it is here and will do our very best to help you on the road to being published and pick you up after the rejections (they will come!) Whether you are a professional or amateur writer you will find something useful here.

I hope you enjoy reading my posts and will visit again soon.

Happy Writing

A Writer's Thought for the Week

Don't forget that the most important part of writing is the enjoyment. If you don't enjoy the writing process it will show in your writing. On the other hand your writing will come alive with your enthusiasm if you go with the process and stop fighting yourself!

Go with the flow and let your creativity do the rest.

Happy writing!

Hi Julie, I'm stuck on page 37 so I'm having a break and visiting. And we have saved up for an old car, having sold mine some time ago to Roy could have a new one, so one chuffed bunny and shall be 'out and about' again thank goodness. :0)

....also if you don't enjoy the writing, and your novel/ story doesn't succeed, you've lost out all round!

Hi, Carole! For some reason I pressed publish and five of the same comment appeared! Hence the deletions. Anyhow - what I was trying to say was a rest does you good! I hope you get your car soon as it will be wonderful.

We must meet up again soon - only this time I'll try and go to the right cafe ;0)

Hi, Frances,

So true! You might as well enjoy the process - then the rejection doesn't seem so bad!

Such a simple but crucial piece of advice. If we don't enjoy our writing, who will?
