ON WRITING

“It’s very easy to quit during the first ten years of writing. Nobody cares whether you write or not, and it’s very hard to write when nobody cares one way or the other. You can’t get fired if you don’t write, and most of the time you don’t get rewarded if you do. But don’t quit.” Andre Dubus

Flash Fiction - you get to vote for the winner

Cakes from Laduree, Paris

Deanna from The Other Side of Deanna is hosting her first writing contest. See details here. Basically write a story (fiction or creative non-fiction) of less than 1,000 words with the theme - Birthday. It is a great contest to enter and there is actually a prize - a $19.95 Amazon voucher.  The contest closes on July 24th, so get cracking!

Read some great #fridayflash fiction here.


I've joined up the for 50,000 words in 50 days writing challenge. It's bad timing as I have visitors and school's just started again, but is it ever a good time? Somehow writing just has to get done. I needed the motivation to get moving on my second novel which I've been researching, so thanks Sarah and Summer for giving me the kick off.

Hope your writing is going stupendously...Denise
