Writing Wednesday: Re-Vamped Blog

Welcome to my updated blog. I’ve been reading the book How To Be a Writer in the E-Age… and Keep Your E-Sanity! by Catherine Ryan Hyde and Anne R Allen, and finding it enormously helpful. When I read that Anne recommended that you only have one blog, and it should have your name on, this was contrary to advice I had previously, which had caused me to set up a separate blog for my book Alina, The White Lady of Oystermouth.

So I found her email address and wrote to her. Nothing ventured, nothing gained. Within half an hour, she had looked at my blog and sent me detailed advice in her reply. I was very grateful, and I took the advice. So this blog now has my name on, and I imported my Alina blog. There is a new page with introductory information and a lot of background on – check it out.

The other advice in the book was that Wednesday and Thursday are the best days for posting, and Saturday and Sunday the worst for traffic. Combined with Anne’s advice that I should respect my writing and not call it scribbling, and I have changed all my Scribbling Saturday posts to Writing Wednesday, and will be posting on Wednesday from now on. Thinking Thursday is unchanged.

I have put explanations on the various pages, that I hope makes the site clear. I would be very grateful to any of you who will look over the new format and leave comments with your advice. Maybe now I can get back to actually writing!


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
