West End Festival

glasgow’s west end festival 09 13th – 28th June
This is a magnificient Festival with a carnival atmoshpere. Starts with a parade and the two weeks are crammed with over 200 events. Its perfect for all the family and often the sunshines too.
I will be participating in the West End Festival with the Federation Of Writers Scotland at Hillhead Library on the 18th June. Do come and support all of us, the budding poets and writers at the event. Free at 1.30 and 3.30.I also have two bookgroup invites one on the 15th of June and another on the 17th of June. All this is such a steep learning curve and I am enjoying it thoroughly. I write because I love it and all these new things are wonderful bonuses.
How is novel 2 progressing? Well, I lost 20, 000 words as I forgot to save it on my memory stick. I feel so devastated. Need to rework the scenes in my mind and write it again.

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.
