Taking a Break

Ugh. I’ve been all over the place with my poor blog in the last couple of months. It’s like a middle-child, loved but over-looked. Luckily it’s not a real child because that analogy is a bit depressing (I’m a middle-child myself). But seriously, my husband got very sick (not scary sick but still, really really sick), my youngest is readying himself to begin school next year and my eldest has been having a few small issues with a boy at school. So, I’ve been distracted.

With all this in mind I’m going to take my break early this year. I usually knock-off from the blog on December 1st and stay away until February 1st. Christmas and summer holidays coincide here, neither of which is conducive to productive writing. I’m stealing a few extra weeks.

So, until the New Year, I hope you stay safe and well. If you celebrate Christmas I hope it is a magical and peaceful time for you, if you don’t but you celebrate another religious festival I hope it is equally as wonderful for you. And if neither thing is your thing, I hope you just enjoy passing from one year to the next.

Next year I’ll be back with more writing tips, more two-sentence stories (of which I hope many will be yours) and more general chattery (which is not a word but I wish it was).

Lots of love,

Wendy.

Summer Break…

I’m going to be taking a break for December and January. Of course, when I say break I’ll still be working on my novel, looking after my kids and everything else that goes with life. But I’ll be taking a break from Pieces of String.

When I come back there’ll be more tips for young writers, more book reviews, more blog posts and, I’m hoping, monthly writing competitions.

I look forward to seeing you all in the New Year.

Lots of love…

Wendy
