I’ve had this idea for years and years

Like many ideas, it’s grown and shrunk in proportion to my courage. I think many other writers in training, published writers, hobby writers have had this happen: you get an idea, you read a book someone else has written with the sameish idea which means you can’t write it because it’ll look like you copied it…

I decided to get this idea out into the world because I think it’s a) rather good and b) rather stubborn and c) I want to be first with it!

Morphic Resonance. Something my father used to talk about. Google it. It’s quite bonkers but there are examples of it all over the place…

Starting a new project means my last one is finished for now and being looked at by my mentor. This is really exciting – hopefully it’ll lead to me getting it published somehow and somewhere. If I self-publish, I know it’ll be the best it can possibly be, having been checked and edited by someone who knows their stuff. And if it stays on the back burner, it’ll be staying on the back burner in its best incarnation and is a collection of all my best stuff that’s mostly not been published anywhere else. I’ve loved working on it but am really happy to be doing something new, too.

I'm a writer living in the NE of Scotland. I write short stories, flash fiction and to date, three novels as practice ones. I've won a few competitions and been published in a few places, and I've been shortlisted too... My stories have been described as easily readable, but with serious themes. I'm finding my own unique voice as a writer and it becomes clearer every day. I'm a mum of two young children and have a partner who is very supportive. I give English tuition to anyone who needs it and I drive taxis part time. In between being a keen cook and making ignoring housework a new hobby, I write. I manage a few hours a day during a good week and one day I'd LOVE to spend a week or so on a writers' retreat. Having said that, the busier I am, the more I write. I like working under pressure (hence my attendance on sites such as 'Hour of Writes' and 'Write-Invite') and it never ceases to amaze me what pops out of my head when I sit down to a blank screen. I am a member of a writer's group called Mearns Writers, a lovely bunch of (slightly bonkers and thoroughly interesting) people indeed. I'm trying to build an on line life as I believe most writers nowadays need to have a readily availble 'CV' in the form of a blog/twitter account/social media page and though I would rather spend time writing stories I suppose it's time I collated my successes and made a page that, hopefully, a publisher/agent will read one day. Happy reading!
