Welcome to my new blog ' Working 2 Write'.
At the start of 2009 I started my other blog http://insidethechickencoop.blogspot.com/
This blog was started as a fun experiment with regular posts covering the antics of my gorgeous little hens. It was a follow on from my book 'One Hundred Ways for A Chicken to Train Its Human.' My first brood of hens and lovely cockerel inspired me to write this little book which was published by Hodder and Stoughton in March 2007.

I found that joining 'Blogland' was a great way to share good practice and see what other writers were doing, and of course I met many other people who are as mad about chucks as I am.

However, I did find it quite restrictive as I only posted information if it was chicken related, although this is one of my favourite subjects, as a writer I want to stretch my own creative limits and try other things too.

During 2009 I have managed to get a few magazine articles published ( pictured at the top of this post)and hope that 2010 will be even more successful. Working full time, it is difficult to find the time, but it is possible if you are determined to put pen to paper or fingers to the keyboard. I even spend some of my lunch hours locked in a room with my laptop, in order to get some writing done and the last few magazine articles would never have made the deadline if I had not given up some of my lunch hours.

I hope to use this as another networking tool where we can all share the ups and downs of writing.

  2. Thanks Carole, Yes it's my main wish that I am have to try to make come true. In the mean time I will just have to give up a few lunch hours, at least that will help my New Years diet!!
