Writing Wednesday: Treasure Trove

I have been bitten by the spring cleaning bug. At the moment I am not cleaning, but clearing out.  I am an inveterate hoarder, and for years (30 or more) I have saved every inspirational quote, poem, sermon notes, and idea that came my way. They were all filed and indexed… And I never looked at them.

When I write my Thinking Thursday posts, sometimes I am looking for inspiration. Why?

So I pulled it all out, sorted it all out, and threw most of it away. (Especially the sermon notes – I want to give you fresh ideas, not someone else’s old ideas.) What was left, I am typing into my computer, so now they are available to be used, built on, and shared with you.

The only question is – why did it take me so long?

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
