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

All I want for Christmas is ..........

Well, the big day is almost upon us. Hopefully, whatever you are doing over the Festive period, your preparations are done and you can put your feet up with a glass of mulled wine in one hand and a mince pie in the other and relax.

But while you are tucking into your Christmas dinner and waiting for the Queen's speech, spare a thought for your writing. What Christmas gift will you give your writing this year? What is it that you need or what do you need to do in order to take your writing career forward?

Thinking about what you can give yourself to make your writing life easier can give you the push you need to make it happen. It doesn't have to be expensive: more time, a corner of a room to create your own writing room, some new pens and notebooks - whatever you can give yourself to help you realise your writing dreams and make them a reality.

This is my last post for 2012 so have a happy Christmas and I'll see you in the New Year!

Hope you had a good one, Julie. There are lots of things I'd like to give myself to make my writing life easier - Arvon holiday, more time, new notebooks Etc Etc. But I think the most effective might be to treat my writing more seriously - because if I don't, who will?
