Christmas Writing

What better time of year to start writing.
December comes alive with festive decorations, kids laughing, Santa visits, Snow in some parts of the world where here in Australia some parts are actually quite hot and its perfect for those beach and pool parties to cool off during this time.

Write about your thoughts on Christmas, what it means to you and perhaps what traditions you partake in. Write a short story about how excited the kids are when they see their presents. Write notes about preparing for Christmas and what you do before everyone arrives. Or perhaps write a recollection of the day and keep it as a wonderful memory of how you celebrated Christmas this year.

Whatever you write about this festive season, jot some notes down to work on later, but most of all write from the heart this Christmas, you'll be amazed how much pours out onto the page.

To All my Followers,
I'd like to wish you a very Merry Christmas
and a Safe & Happy New Year.
I look forward to continuing my updates,
tips and little inspirations for you in the New Year.
From Friday I'll be on leave and will return to this blog early in the New Year.
But feel free explore my blog and leave comments if you wish.
I do enjoy feedback and little notes.
Take Care

New Years Resolution

Do you have any thoughts about your New Years Resolution yet?
It's something I've been thinking about for a few days now and since I've picked up some work along the way in the form of paid article writing, I would like to get published but I think if I can finish my book next year that is my resolution. Then I'll think about looking for an agent to go over some of my work, tighten it up so it flows a lot better.
I'm looking into writting a ghost book or ebook too next year for someone. It's a very short one, just going through the final details of what is required etc... Should be fun.
In 2010, one of my goals is to get some of my work published in a few magazines. I'll go through the process on my blog in how to submit particular articles and the process the editor of a magazine goes through when looking for articles to publish. So stay tuned!
