New year, new start!

I started a blog three years ago, with the intention of adding it to it regularly. That sadly didn’t happen. In part this was due to the fact that I used to have a natural tendency to procrastinate and put off doing things that I actually needed to do in order to achieve what I was capable of, hence I didn’t manage to sit down and work out how to blog and navigate WordPress. This will change in January. My purpose is to show to the world that I’m taking my writing seriously. I’ve dabbled in it for a while and have had some success, but I’ve never truly committed to it, probably due to a lack of confidence. I’m kind of hoping that if I write the blog, success will come, or personal fulfilment at least!

My main focus is short stories and flash fiction, mainly about relationships and interesting encounters and I’d love to think that people will read my work and it will help them to make a smidgeon more sense of their lives. Let’s see. I also ‘won’ Nanowrimo in November and am in the process of editing a hotch-potch of rather confusing scenes! Here’s to a happy, word full January. Cheers!

  1. Hey, Mary! Thanks for following my blog. I enjoyed reading your post here and look forward to checking back in often, and I hope you’ll do the same. Best of luck in this January endeavor of ours! 🙂


    1. Hi Mark, lovely to be in touch. I’m on the lookout for successful writers like you and I was impressed by your blog. I’ve just started blogging but have been writing for a while. Great to connect with likeminded people. Mary

  2. Thank you for reading my blog – apologies for not replying sooner. Procrastination is not my problem usually – but I can relate to your comment about blogging because it took me 4 years to return to one I set up with good intentions! My problem is time management – I joined Blogging 101 to improve and learn but life always has a way of intervening (this time of year I have to research and plan my lessons and then I discover half-finished poems or stories and/or start rewriting stuff). However, I will try and get back on track with assignments today. Congratulations on all your writing achievements – winning Nanowrimo leaves me in awe!!


    1. Thanks, Mairi. I’m not too great at time management either. Trying to do better with it this year. For me it’s difficult to know what to focus on (writing wise) – there are so many different elements to it and I’m not terribly organised!
