Thinking about writing? – Why don’t you try it?

Don’t think about it – just write

Transitions ($250 prize money!)

The SisterShip team I belong to are holding another writing competition. Transitions – something close to my heart having ‘transitioned’ from boat to land and from land to boat three times each way. Plus, from land to horse and horse to land (we lived with five horses and the gear on their backs for quite some time in the bush).

(BTW you do not have to be ‘on the water’ to write this – it is not literal!) 🙂

Encouraging Writers

Entries to a recent writing competition are going to be published in an anthology: “Voyaging Pets”. This collection of true stories of animals, in, on, and around the water will make you laugh out loud, smile broadly, gasp a little and there may be a few tears…

The Point?

I’m getting there.

Supporting New Writers

A friend asked if she could submit a story after the Pets competition closed, i.e. just for the book.

‘Of course,’ I said (she writes well).

Then she said, ‘I have another friend who may like to have a go too.’

So I received two wonderful stories, the ‘friend’ wrote: “Thanks for prompting me to do this – I totally loved it!” (She’s never written for a publication before.) I think she now has the bug!

The Writing Journey

This isn’t the first positive comment I’ve received for encouraging and supporting new writers. And all of them have a natural flow with words, and all have loved having a go. It is an honour to be part of their journey.

Writing, Writing, and more Writing!

If my chest has expanded for each proud moment during last few months, I’d have a big chest.

With great fanfare, SisterShip Magazine was launched in April after 30 years in dry-dock. In June issue 2 was published and the comments, interest, and support were mind-blowing. August’s issue is well on the way.

SisterShip women on the water

A couple of weeks ago we softly launched our publishing website SisterShip Press Pty Ltd, with our search for women authors.

In the midst of all this, we also launched a short story competition based on fear – an author contacted me directly and thanked us for addressing an important subject.

Last month, with Noel, we celebrated 20 years of marriage, travelling, and an extraordinary life.

So with my big breasts, blown mind, busy fingers, marvellous husband, and neat business partner – I just want to say thanks. The ride-of-my-life continues…
