Top 5 Tips On Becoming A Great Content Writer

Some great writing tips today if you want to be a content writer – and even if you don’t, they’re STILL applicable! Thanks Austin! Whenever I tell someone what I do for a living, 9 out of 10 times they give me a blank look. Unless you work for an online business, very few people actually know what a “content writer” is.  A content writer or a website content writer is someone who specializes in providing relevant content for websites. If you want to write for a living or need some extra cash, this is a great job. All you… Read More »Top 5 Tips On Becoming A Great Content Writer

5 Reasons Why Compromising Can Lead To Creativity As A Writer

In February 2012 at The Guerilla Filmmakers’ Masterclass, Chris Jones encouraged people to stand up and make a commitment to make something and despite having no intention of doing so when I arrived, that’s how the journey, of my feature film of ‘The Journey’ began. Now yes, I am a writer/director, the story behind this film is quite a complex one and I learned a great deal from it. In any creative role, you should always admit that you never stop learning. Once you embrace this as an ideology, creativity will always work with you, not against you. From the… Read More »5 Reasons Why Compromising Can Lead To Creativity As A Writer

15 Guidelines For Submitting Your Articles To Small Press Magazines

  • May 7, 2013December 1, 2016

Small press magazines are a great little institution, and still one of the best ways to get your writing work published. They may not have an audience of millions and they may not pay out a great deal for your work, but having small press magazines on your writing CV will mean a lot to publishers, agents and other writers, who understand just how important they are to the grand scheme of things in the writing world. Ignore them at your peril. If you are thinking of approaching small press magazines as a way of getting your work published in… Read More »15 Guidelines For Submitting Your Articles To Small Press Magazines

All Aboard: The Night Train

So I was in London yesterday and made the really stupid mistake of wearing 5 inch heels when I knew full well I was going to be walking EVERYWHERE. But even that wasn’t the extent of madness that ensued, even though I did fall off them in Oxford Street and stumbled right into the arms of a rather gorgeous Eastern European on the phone (it’s true, I didn’t do it on purpose… Honest!!!). Fast forward all the meetings – they went well, thanks and THIS time I managed not to poke Julian Friedmann’s eye out with a chopstick – and… Read More »All Aboard: The Night Train

Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

I am a terrible liar. I read about these people who have mistresses and male bits on the side (misters??) FOR YEARS and wonder how they manage it. Even if I wanted to have an affair (I don’t, in case you’re reading my lovely husband, lol), I don’t think I would just on the basis of how stressful it must be. Accounting for where you’ve been; making sure you don’t smell of the “other one” or even just *looking* guilty. Yikes. I’d sooner just concentrate on the one relationship – hell, I don’t have time for another one, anyway. Too… Read More »Liar, Liar, Pants on Fire

Planes, Adrian Mead, Naked Men and Fire Drills…

…Doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, does it? 😛 What a weird and wonderful weekend I’ve had. I simply must tell you all the gory details, since if I hadn’t lived it and seen it all through my own eyes, I would have thought it was one of those Steve Martin 80s comedies. Maybe it was. Perhaps, somewhere near Bristol is a Being John Malkovich-style-portal that I slipped through, since my adventures began when I got to the airport. Everything was fine until I checked in. So actually, crap from the start. Some little Hitler not only threw… Read More »Planes, Adrian Mead, Naked Men and Fire Drills…

Combe Martin & Berrynarbor, North Devon

Devon is a bit of an enigma: people outside the area look at a map of the UK and think it must be pretty small; that all Devonians must know someone Cornish since the two counties are bang next door to each other. The reality is, it takes longer to go from one end of Devon to the other by car than it takes to get to London by rail from the town I live in. The reason for the unfair comparison between car and rail by the way is because there are practically no trains IN Devon: the network… Read More »Combe Martin & Berrynarbor, North Devon

Travel Writing

I could not have had a busier or noisier day yesterday than if I had actually purchased a ticket right into the jaws of Hell for a one-day round-trip round Satan’s lair. I got on a train from Devon to Paddington at 9am only to be greeted by a multitude of already-drunk Arsenal and West Ham fans, complaining Rugby fans (who were still drinking, but apparently in a “sensible” fashion, unlike their football-obsessed counterparts) and an old Chap from Sidmouth who wanted to tell anyone who would listen about his charity work and his dog, Sarah. I asked why he… Read More »Travel Writing
