Getting back to basics

Hello fellow bloggers. I’m sorry that it’s been a while since I have written a part on my blog. There’s no excuse for this other than perhaps writer’s block if you would allow me this reason. I just didn’t know what to write about. In fact ever since I started blogging, I didn’t have a clue what my blog would be or what it would contain. 

As this is my “first time in a long time” post, I will keep it short and brief. This is just me saying hello and publishing something. My goal is to write way more posts but I am cautious to promising things to people. We will see. 

NZWC competition now open

Hey everyone,

One thing about me that everyone knows, is that I love writing stories. And I do my best to write good stories as well as encourage others to write and find the joys of writing themselves.

This is why I’m glad to announce that New Zealand Writer’s college competition is now open. Submissions closes 30th September and the theme is “in the unlikeliest of places”.

Although I don’t want even more competition that I already have but if you are interested int his, then i encourage you to have a go.

A few things to consider:

  1. Interested in this writing competition? Go to the website  for more information including the guidelines
  2. What do you think the theme “in the unlikeliest of places” is about. Share some ideas in the comments down below.
  3. Are you a novice writer. Don’t enter the competition if you’ve published a few books or if you have a successful blog.
  4. Read lots. Although you will definetly become busy writing the short story, but you also need to give yourself time to read. As they say “if you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time or the skills to write”.
  5. Brainstorm ideas before getting stuck into the story. Even if you already have an idea ffor your story, it’s a good idea to write it all down on paper. Develop your characters, the plot, story line and conflicts before writing.

Happy writing fellow bloggers!

 

Happy Juno day

The other day, Google home page celebrated Juno, or something to do with outer space. Juno was sent into outer space by NASa, obviously, and arrived at Jupiter on 4th July 2016. it took five years for Juno to reach Jupiter from earth. And now, Juno is happily orbiting Jupiter, for “NASA” reasons.

Although my research was small, I found something interesting in outerspace. A space probe called Rosetta.

I don’t want to get into the spacey details about it because it might just make your brain hurt. But isn’t Rosetta such a lovely name for a girl.

Anyways, happy Juno day or Happy Birthday Juno, or whatever these scientists call it these days.
