Hello

My name is Fiona (Fi). I'm a forty something mother of two and wife. For years I worked as a PA/administrator/secretary to support my habit - writing. I've always been a dreamer, an observer of people and a creator of worlds.

You'll usually find that I'm writing a novel but since 1997 I've been penning murder mystery plays for my business, Murdering The Text with two occasional co-writers. I write a blog to accompany the business, a writing related blog, and my personal family history research blog.

I lead a very full life, writing, working, networking and creating in between looking after my two children and their two guinea pigs.

1. Plan your book



I don't necessarily mean write out a chapter plan but at the very least sketch out an idea of where your story will go, the barest bones of its plot. You don't have to keep exactly to this plan but at least you'll have a guideline to start from.

 

2. When will you write?



It's all well and good to announce that you're going to take part…

Beating Off The August Monster

Posted on May 24, 2012 at 1:00pm 0 Comments

It isn't even June and yet I'm already counting down the days until the summer holiday begins. No more getting up at 6am. No more preparing packed lunches, reading school newsletters, or scouring the house for change to pay for miscellaneous school fees. It will be peaceful, restful, and above all organized.…

Thanks you for accepting my friendship!
8,000 plus words. Wow some people take years to do that. They shouldn't.

Jodi: I saw your message below. None of us are crazy. It just looks that way to other people who are not compelled to write.

Thanks for adding me. So, I was reading all that you are doing and thought:

"Wow, this woman's crazy."

Then I reminded myself that I am an EMT, nanny, writer, teacher, massage therapist and personal assistant. Hello!"

My mind observes everything and forever curious! Sound familiar?
