Blog Hop

Thank you to Miss Beatrix for passing the Blog Hop on to me.

Why do I write?

I have always been a writer. I have collections of books from my primary age self with lots of stories and pictures. I remember creating little jotters for all my teddies and dollies so that we could all write together. As I grew up I still had a passion for writing and during my teenage years I had many penpals and often my letters would be my own stories to them.

Fast forward to more recent years, in 2002 I embarked on creative writing and poetry courses... sometime before 2002 (I can't quite recall the year) I had two poems published in anthologies.

Over the years since then I have written for many websites (from craft to medical) and I still do to some extent.  Present day I don't write as often as that ole devil called work takes up a lot of time. Although I promise myself often that I will write more.

There's a book in me, maybe even two.  Who knows, I may write it one day,  I hope you buy it.

What am I working on?

Lots of things, all unfinished... piles of fabric just waiting to be made into curtains for my littlest bedroom, our office and a window dressing for my bedroom.  More fabric crying out to be fashioned into a Princess Sofia costume and a Tiana (from Princess and the Frog) costume.  A lovely white jewled cardigan on my knitting needles that just needs another sleeve and the collar. A Cath Kidston bag weeping to be sewn together...and lots of new recipes to try out.  I must make time!

How does it differ from others of its genre?

There's a lot of variety in my blog, from cooking to crafts to lifestyle.  I do wish I would post more.

How does my writing process work?

For being such an organised person in my day to day life: working full time, managing my own small graphic design and photography business and also working (when time permits) as a service assessor for various companies, I don't seem to have a scheduled process of writing for my blog.  Often I'll jot some ideas down then I leave it too long to write about it. I really enjoyed the 'Blog Every Day..' project I signed up for as it gave me a goal to write more.  I need to focus on a plan and put it into action.

I'm now going to pass the blog hop baton on to Youngonesfive, I look forward to reading your Blog Hop.

Thanks for reading,
