And Now, For A Muppet News Flash....
Internetties, I am thinking of becoming much more serious about writing (Not HERE of course, here you'll still find mindless drivel, pocket lists, recipes, half-baked poems, chicken news and blunk drogging). I have a lot of stuff to say, apparently, and I've had plenty of practice writing over the past TWO AND A HALF YEARS! Wow, I've been writing for two and a half years!
You bloggy buddies have given me such awesome encouragement, corrected my spelling, awarded me with cool buttons, offered feedback and been real friends. So I'm beginning a journey today: Nan, the Writer.
What do you think? Any advice? There are some cool writing websites out there that I've been checking out. I'm going to the library tomorrow, to grab some books on writing, freelancing and so on. I'm thinking of doing a course. What do I need to know?
And, say I was going to write a column on moving to Bournemouth for a local paper. What would I call it?? Do you know, I love the name of my website: "Things I've Found In Pockets" was a flash of inspiration, something I didn't even have to think about. But now, I'm stumped. I want something witty and brilliant and totally amazing (like me!). "Fierce Invalids Home From Hot Climates" is taken, alas. So, here's a chance for YOU to win a prize, my friends! Suggest a byline for me. If I decide to go with your suggestion, I will write a guest post for your blog, all about your awesomeness! Or any other topic of your desire. Anything at all. As long as it won't lead to my being arrested.
Hee hee! This is so exciting!
