Happy New Year!


This is me New Year’s Eve, welcoming in 2017 and all the possibilities that come with the dawning of a brand new year – which will hopefully be brighter and more positive in many ways for One & All.

At this point, in the photo, I had no notion of any New Year’s Resolutions I wanted to make, but on a cold, dark morning, seven bumbled into my head, which I duly noted down in my diary.

What are they? I hear you ask. Although I’m not willing to share them all , as they are not all relevant to this blog –  I can share the one that is. I would like to spend more time reading this year – and by that I mean novels, not books or magazines about writing. I want to feel I can devour more works from different authors, without feeling that I should be focusing on my current WIP. After all, reading does expose me to the craft of writing, a wider vocabulary, and relaxes my mind ready to work on my own projects. I follow numerous book blogs and review sites, hence I have a plethora of paperbacks and Kindle versions lined up for me – so it’s not as though I need to search around for what to read next.

In my writing world, I am completing yet another round of edits of a women’s contemporary novel, whilst continuing to write the next DI Wednesday novel. I have also started planning the next contemporary novel, as just like with reading, I like to have projects lurking in the background so I’m never left hanging around searching for inspiration.

Thank you for following me in 2016, and I hope you continue dropping by in 2017.

Have a joyous, healthy, fun, prosperous, and peaceful New Year and Happy Word Flow One & All.
