Guest Posts

Apart from writing fiction and blogging here, I also blog over at Write Anything.

I recommend reading through the wealth of information the writers of Write Anything provide, including weekly writing prompts and the Form and Genre Challenge.

Each month, the writers focus on a specific theme as well as writing an open post, a topic of their choice.

Here I have collected the links to my articles.

  1. I have written a few poems from childhood memories and also life challenges .Any advice would be appreciated on some new approaches.My brain is going in circles! Thanks

    • Keep writing, revising, editing, rewriting. Seek feedback from other writers. Read as much as you can. Read as many blogs as you can about the art and craft of writing.

      • Thanks for your input just starting to learn as the ropes

      • We all started somewhere and began the journey, following the signposts along the way and learning as we went.

      • Ok I need advice I want to restart writing but it’s been 3 years ago I want to start but I not sure any body who can help me I will be grateful

      • Wanting to restart is the first step.
        Knowing what to do next is the uncertain step.
        If you want to write short stories, find a prompt and start from there.
        If you want to write poetry, give yourself 20 minutes to write something without censoring yourself.
        If you want to write a novel, begin planning characters, plot and the main themes.
        The most important thing is to start. Small if needs be; ambitious in scope.
        Srart. Get feedback. Keep going.

      • Maybe I should write about the stress of holiday time After all the crazyness of Holidays are over I guessing it would be better to start somewhere not sure 🤔 Thanks

      • Introducing new chapters including raw materials. Just scratch on on the surface

  2. A roller coaster ride it is !
