Knowing what to write about today is easy – my new website.
Many thanks to New Writing North, Creative Fuse and the whole Digi-Transform team for all the advice, support and technical magic and to my mentor Katy Carr.
I have, for the last few years, had a fallow period where I’ve had to put writing to one side. And so this programme has come at the perfect time – it’s been a lovely opportunity to take a look at what I’ve achieved, what direction I want to take next and how I engage with readers and other writers.
All in all, an interesting and uplifting experience.
I hope you’ll take a look at the website and if you are a writer, please let me know if you’d like to write a blog piece and tell people what particular books, websites or courses have helped you with your writing.
My next blog post will be about my local bookshop. To find out why it’s so special, see you back here next week.
But before I go, I took the photo at the bottom of the page at another bookshop in Northumberland, Barter Books in Alnwick. It’s an interesting piece of poetry written before the internet, but strangely prescient.
