Writers Block?

Several of my writing friends have been struck with the dreaded writers block.  I know how it feels.  It feels like the end of the world when you stare at an empty page.

Stella’s Solution:  Read and read and read.  This is your chance to catch up on all those lovely books piling up on the floor.  Then switch on your computer and start a stream of writing about anything, the weather, the cat, the itch on your right elbow.  Before you know it, a story will begin to form.  It may not be what you were planning to write next but at least it has loosened those frozen words.

Garden Inspiration

This lovely weather is perfect for writing in the garden.  Many of my short stories have been sown and blossomed in the garden.  Take  notebook, pen, a cup of coffee and some cushions into the garden, find your favourite spot and suddenly you’ll see a butterfly or a nodding flower and the words will start to flow.

Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary

As it is this famous writer’s anniversary, I have written
a short story that airs many of his often quoted lines.
It’s called Nodding Violets. Fingers crossed.
