[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.

It's no secret I'm slightly obsessed with Paperblanks notebooks, as I've Tweeted and blogged about them before. I recently picked up two new notebooks, their stunning "Midnight Gold" and "Indigo Sky Mares," and after mentioning my purchases on Twitter I got into a micro-conversation with the good people at Paperblanks, which lead to an opportunity to take part in their bi-monthly "Featured Artist" segment.

Before I link to the interview, I should point you to their various ranges of notebooks (both lined and blank), guest books, day planners, and address books of all shapes, sizes and designs. It's so hard picking a favourite design, and I talk more in the interview about the ones I tend to favour, but there are a couple I've got my eye on for my next Paperblanks spree—their "Japanese Lacquer Boxes" collection and the "Mucha" collection. They're both so elegant and beautiful!

You can read the interview, in which I ramble about notebooks, creativity, and inspiration here. (There is also a pic of me looking all thoughtful and authorish.)

And the rest of their Featured Artist interviews can be found here.
