Hello there! If you have found this blog, well you’ve  just performed a small miracle as I know nothing about search engine optimisation. (So the countless spam messages I receive tell me.)

Let me start by introducing myself. My name’s Joanne and I live and work in the West Midlands in the UK. By day I am a part time primary school teacher and full-time  foster carer for my nine year old nephew. By night (and at other random times) I am attempting to complete the journey to publishing my first novel (a children’s fantasy-adventure -fairy tale), down whichever path that may take me.

The initial idea behind this blog was to detail the journey of writing a novel and all the different processes along the way. As the blog has progressed it also has other random writing related posts here from short stories and flash fiction to some tongue in cheek poetry. (Rhymes, they are really just rhymes!)

Hopefully you’ll find something  which tantalises your literary taste buds.

Welcome to the journey. It’s good to have you on board for the ride.

Please do explore and enjoy.

  1. Hello Freda,I love how you are so dedicated to writing but that you also selflessly shares tips and ideas on writing with your readers. Perhaps that is the teacher in you but still, it is most appreciated and helpful. I have nominated you for the 5 Award into one Award…really, it is a fun award as you have been decorated with so many nice nominations but it has the least homework/rules. Congratulations. You can see more info on my site at http://wp.me/3ia4v Blessings and hugs, Oliana, Whispering Insights
