    FEAT ROLL ON SEPT

    NEWS & UPDATES Goodbye, August! You sure did your best to throw spanners in our wheels, so truth be told I’m rather glad to close the books on you. The heat was unlike anything we’ve ever experienced here in London, and the sun can be lethal...

    NEWS & UPDATES Goodbye, July! And cheerio June, May, April and March. I can’t believe it’s been five months since I last wrote one of these news and updates posts. Or, indeed, that it’s been a full year this month since I decided to stick my nose out of my…

    AWW MILESTONES DECEMBER

    MILESTONES GOODBYE DECEMBER! I’ve been online for four months now to forge partnerships, find potential readers and engage in some kind of intellectual debate and social interaction with other writers. Covid style, of course. As December, and with it this whole blasted year, withers away in the night, it’s time…

  • ROLL ON DECEMBER

    HELLO DECEMBER: yuletide scene with popcorn and hot chocolate in front of an open fire.

    MILESTONES GOODBYE NOVEMBER! Three months into this creative writing adventure I’m beginning to think the Writing Community, particularly on twitter, is a pretty awesome place to call home. So, now that November is over it’s time for the monthly recap. I’m extremely proud of myself for completing NaNoWriMo in 17…

    GOODBYE OCTOBER! Two months into this adventure I’m touched and blown away by the kind and supportive reception I’ve received in the online WritingCommunity. I posted more work in progress (wip) chapters and daily InstaWrimo/ preptober blogposts in October. I was active on social media and promoted my posts and…

    AWW MILESTONES 800 TWITTER

    I KNOW I said I was going to stop these posts as I started the monthly milestones, but I guess I was a tad too excited. It feels right, somehow, to keep counting up to 1000. Provided I ever get there. I’ve done social media promotions for many years, and…

    AWW MILESTONES 700 TWITTER

    WEEK SIX is over and September is nearly at an end. I’ve managed to write fiction, poetry and a few articles, I’ve received my first reader comments, and my Ulfrheim drafts have been read in four different countries.  In the last month and a half, I’ve: successfully activated a twitter account;…

  • FIVE WEEKS ONLINE

    AWW MILESTONES 600 TWITTER

    FIVE WEEKS online after a year of radio silence is actually rather overwhelming. I’m so glad there are nifty little scheduling solutions you can use to plan and space out your engagement in advance. Anyway, this is another celebrate every milestone kinda post. Look what happened this week: Six hundred…

    WEEK 4, whistled past like an autumn storm and I’m actually quite surprised it’s time to do one of these already. But missing out on an opportunity to celebrate? No chance! So, what’s the reason we’re throwing a party today? Yep, there it is. 500 followers have found the @AsWeWrite…

    WEEK 3, is over and my love affair with the twitter #WritingCommunity continues.

    AWW MILESTONES AUGUST

    GOODBYE AUGUST, we had more fun that I had expected. I know it took me a long time to get there, but I did it. I finally braved it and began posting #wip chapters and promoting them and my blog posts online.  My hiding days are over. I need to…

    Social media: 300 twitter followers

    DANG, my second week of trying to promote this place online is over, and I’ve got so many new friends in the #WritingCommunity. I try to thank people who follow, retweet and comment, but I’m already way behind. Who’d’ve thunk it, eh? Not me, that’s for sure. In keeping with my…

    CELEBRATING every milestone… Today that milestone came courtesy of Wattpad, where my Fenrir’s Cubbies #wip for some reason has ended up as #1 in #scandinavian. Wot?

  • MY FIRST WEEK ONLINE

    Social media milestones@ 200 followers on twitter

    SOMETIMES, patting yourself on the back and celebrating even the smallest of milestones along the path can be very liberating. And uplifting. When I decided to throw caution to the wind and share my fictional writing with the world, I promised myself that I would be unabashedly proud of every…

    Milestones: 100 twitter followers

    YESTERDAY, I DECIDED to go on twitter to check if I had created an account for my fictional writer’s room. And I had. So, while I was there, I did some follow-backs, responded to a few messages, left a couple of comments and posted a few #ShamelessSelfpromotionSunday pieces to share my #WIP.…
