Learning

As a new writer and having just had my book published Iam learning various facts about the weird and wonderful world of Writing. I enjoy the writing process, meeting like minded people in my Writers Club and reading. Setting up my website and blogging however, has opened up a different world of vanity press, the AW forum and the struggles of new writers. New technology has also created the possibilty of voices not in the mainstream being heard.Iam on a steep learning curve.

Asian Writers Festival

The Asian Writer, an online site that introduces and showcases new writers of BME background is now considering holding a Writers Festival in Leicster.What a fantastic idea, especially if it is inclusive of all writers to take part in it. I firmly believe one of the ways of sharing and caring about all the groups in society is through literature. It is a wonderful way of getting to know people. I'm reading the 'Harmony Silk Factory' by Tash Aw and I'm learning about Malaysia in the 1930's.

My novel 2 is taking shape,nearly half way with the first draft. Ideas spring up in the middle of the night and I dash a few words in the notebook by my side, sometimes the writing is fuzzy making it fun(?) to decipher in the morning.
