Writing Wednesday: Not Scribbling!

I have just finished my homework for the poetry workshop of the Writers Circle. Whether the poem has any merit, remains to be seen. But it made me realise that it is the first writing I have done for weeks [chorus of ‘call yourself a writer?’].

I have been so caught up with the production and marketing of my local history book, that I have completely stopped writing. And there is much more to do, because when the book is ready to print, I have to talk to potential sellers and buyers and promote it. So I have to take remedial action urgently. Though I don’t know when I’ll fit it in.

But it means I am brought to the cry of every part-time writer, and must find the time. So here I go with new intent. Watch this space!

About Ann Marie Thomas

Married since 1974, Christian since 1986, 4 children, 4 grand children, disabled with fibromyalgia but was working almost full time until a stroke in May 2010 changed my life completely. Writing poetry and making up stories since I was a child, I only started to write seriously when my children were grown. My main ambition is to write science fiction, but along the way I got distracted by local history and poetry about my stroke. Taking early retirement gave me the chance to concentrate on my writing. My book, Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth, was published in print and ebook at Easter 2012. The success of Alina led to the publication of Broken Reed: The Lords of Gower and King John in September 2013, and The Magna Carta Story at Easter 2015. I am still writing science fiction - a series of novels called Flight of the Kestrel. For all my author news, see me author blog at www.annmariethomas.me.uk
