New Beginnings

Every year begins with new resolutions. Some are old versions of broken promises or unfulfilled dreams and wishes from previous years; others are works in progress to help improve our lives, beliefs or to capture those moth-eaten dreams. Mine is the latter.

I tell myself every year that I will not make any resolutions so as to avoid the disappointment of not keeping them.

2020 is going to be different.

I have put into place measures that will hopefully achieve some of what I would like to see change in my life, for the future. With this is mind, I need to share them with you…

My dream is to run various writing workshops for children. So far, I have written to all the schools in my local area with the offer of enhancing their literacy programmes by establishing writers’ clubs, author enrichments or any other service they may require. To that end, I wait in hope for them to get back to me so that we can discuss exactly what sort of group or workshop would benefit their school. I know a few parents run home school groups. If you would like a group session on a specific aspect of literacy, contact me. 

The second part of my dream is to continue mentoring novice writers. So far, I have three ladies receiving my support through their virgin journeys into writing their first books. In the new year, I would like to offer my services to more individuals looking to take the plunge into writing but aren’t sure exactly what they want to do. My rates are competitive and I make sure you always have a helpful hand waiting to catch you when you hit those stumbling blocks along the way. If you feel like taking the plunge with me, send me an email and we can chat about achieving your writing goals and making your dreams come true.

The third part of my dream to is find a publisher willing to take me on. I hate marketing; I have no inclination to try fathoming the wonderful world of KDP and insights into book selling market trends. Instead, I want someone willing to fight through the white noise and publish my books, organise the marketing required for the book to sell and just tell me where to go to help sell them. New stories have been created especially for this venture. Once edited and polished, they will be ready to meet prospective publishers. So, if you are a publisher looking for a children’s author who also loves to writes crime fiction and poetry, please contact me. Make my dream come true!

I’m just a girl,

standing in front of the world,

asking it not to crush me.

Are you going to join me on my journey

into 2020?

  3. I can retire next year. I will edit and publish my books. I would like to enhance writing. Maybe a Community college? I believe, we must show the world. Books are the teachers of our world. I traveled to a thousand places as a child reading the books. Always a pleasure to read your work and I hope a happy and successful 2020.
