Happy New Year, everyone! I wish you all the good times, progress, and best wishes in the world for 2015. Let's hope it's a grand and spiffy year!

I plan to post more regularly here again, and share writing-related content as I was last year before Life got all distracting and I fell out of the LJ way. I hope everyone is doing great and had a good end to 2014.

I'll start off by mentioning The Write Day, a one day boost-camp retreat for writers in the South-West of England. It offers a light, airy space, time to focus on nothing but writing, and support from other writers. I'm booked on for Feb 15th and will be there with a few friends from my writing group. It should be fun and extremely productive!

[livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout is back for 2015, and there's still time to sign up! I've done this challenge a couple of years running and it's a wonderful way of keeping on top of your writing goals. The community provides a very organised, supportive structure, with loads of different writing events, encouragement posts, as well as writing articles to help inspire or motivate you. You can pledge to meet various different word counts - there is something to suit everyone.

Towards the end of last year I posted a few short interviews at other blogs and venues, and since they are writing-related I thought I'd share them here:

First up is an author profile of novelist, poet, script writer and playwright Sue Ashby. Sue does a lot of invaluable support work and networking with writers in the South West of England.

Followed by another author profile of playwright Tony Benge. Tony has been writing plays for twenty years, and has been commissioned by the Library Theatre Manchester, Radio 4 Drama, and Manchester Open Learning.

And lastly, The Dorset Writers' Network did a Writing Lives biography on my writing group! This is the first in a series of group bios - one will go up every month. Writing Lives: Storyslingers.
