New Year, New Blog!
It's good to have a new challenge for a new year and this is one of mine. A new blog about reading and writing, my twin passions.
It seems to be generally accepted that to be a writer, it first helps to be a reader. I'd say it's almost compulsory. How can we write and try to be published without reading what's already out there, whether it's novels or magazine stories and articles?
So this is where I'm aiming to talk about books and freelance writing, whenever I get the urge. I love keeping up to date with market opportunities, so I'll include information when possible, or links to interesting sites.
The photo above is some of the old Agatha Christie books I have in my study - she was the first crime writer whose books I devoured one after the other as soon as I was able to use the adult section of the library. Still one of my favourites!
Happy reading and writing in 2010!
