Getting There

I have just down loaded a new wordprocessing system and will be using it for my writing from now on.

It will take some time to get used to the layout but the icons look familiar. I don’t intend to go very far today is we have been told to be cautious because of the wind, so I may be writing a story for my writing group homework.

We choose a different subject each fortnight and take something to read. As none of us have a novel on the go at present we are trying to make a collection for an anthology.

Last week I delved into the Anglo Saxon history of Tarring village which was then called ‘Terringes.’ This week I may try fiction, if I can wean myself off codeword puzzles. Maybe if I write straight onto the computer it would work, although I usually write in longhand first and then type it up.

I need to find or take some new photos to go with my posts. Maybe next time.

I am a retired schoolteacher now writing novels in Worthing where I live with my husband. After eight locally based relationship novels I have now written a children's story which could be considered a pastiche of Beverley Nichol's works which I loved as a child and still remember fondly. " Penny Down the Drain" may remind folk of " Alice in Wonderland " or " Narnia." but it is set in the 21st century. Our two sons are similarly creative as one is a journalist and the other an actor. When there is no pandemic I am the publicity secretary for Worthing Friendship Centre and listen to live music , folk and jazz.
