Iím going to start with apologies! That is, as this is a new kind of blog post for me, Iím afraid I might miss something or someone out. If so, Iím sorry.
In the spotlight this week we have Alyson Hilbourne, telling us about her work, what she likes writing and what she does in her spare time. Iíll join you in the coffee shop, Alyson, but the diving bit has to be in my imagination.
Paola has written an excellent blog post on Curiosity and Writing, inspired by what Ian McEwan said at a talk she attended at Palais des Beaux Arts in Brussels. Curiosity is something that all writers have in common (and artists, too), I think, and I canít imagine it any other way.† Thank you for such as a great write-up, Paola.
The Monday Muse is not yet up, as I write, but no doubt Val will come up with something to get our teeth into, so donít forget to look in.
Nicola has committed to quite a lot in her Commitment Cabin, and I take my hat off to her. Itís a great idea to keep focused.
In Article Published, Rilla tells us of her success in writing an article in Danish Ė inspired Ė or indeed provoked Ė by the anti-immigration tone of posters she saw at the railway station when she arrived in Denmark. Her article was published both online and in the paper. Well done and congratulations, Rilla! †(You have inspired me to get on with writing in my mother-tongue, Norwegian, too Ė and get on with some translation work.)
The Call for Submission suggestion, for the WA Anthology 2015, Kaleidoscope, posted by Laura, is up under Call for Submissions, inspiring us all to pick up our pens.
I hope you all have a great week, and that the weather-forecast about a three month heat wave is right. Iím looking forward to sitting in the garden with my notebook, while the children play around me. My first item on my writing agenda is a possible flash fiction piece for the anthology.
