Not Quite the Status Quo

Hello there,

Thanks for stopping by.  We may or may not know one another – it’s even possible you found me by chance. Nonetheless, pull up a pew.

Of late, in this blog, I’ve talked about the identity crisis writers can face – and the one that I experience on a regular basis. Apart from, perhaps, plays and poetry, I’ve dipped my quill in most of the inkwells out there: short fiction, long fiction, jokes, sketches, monologues, parody songs, greetings cards, branding, copywriting, articles and features, speeches and speech rewrites. Plus blogging, of course – for me and for others.

Anyway, it occurred to me this morning that a good blog is a conversation and not merely a monologue. And that brings me to you, dear reader. My blog post title is a clue to the point of this point – Whatever You Want. (See what I did there? Sure you did.)

I’ve been doing this for a fair wee while now and it may just be that I have an answer for your question, a solution for your writing conundrum, or a match for your candle. Why not see if that’s the case and ping me a writing related question in a comment (let’s keep it clean, people). 

I’ll answer them in one post, or maybe dedicate a separate post for something meaty. Remember, it’s whatever is useful to you.

Like the dog we once had that used to raid the bin regularly, I’m at your disposal.

    I have a couple questions, actually.

    Firstly, What makes you think you're a writer?–and I absolutely do not mean that sarcastically. I mean, when was the first time you thought: THIS IS WHAT I AM: I AM A WRITER. Was it something that came from inside, or something that someone else inspired you to think about yourself?

    Secondly, What keeps you writing when you are discouraged?
