Going live

I’ve done it!! My own blog.  Perhaps I should have entitled it ‘A writer’s little’.  The fact is, the profession is poorly paid, frustrating and lonely.  But it’s also exhilarating, fun and rewarding in other ways.  I’ve been earning my living as a writer of research reports, corporate literature and other serious stuff for years, but I’m now branching out in other directions. This month I started a Writer’s Bureau course on article writing, which I hope will help me to get published in that genre.  If all goes well, I hope to move on from there to other genres such as short story writing – but the market seems awfully crowded.  On this blog I intend to post, at least once a week, news of what I’ve been up to writing-wise, writing tips and news from France.

P.S. This site is still under construction. Have patience while I get my head round widgets and all the other gismos that I don’t yet understand.

About nessafrance

My husband and I moved to an 18th-century farmhouse in SW France in 1997. I am fascinated by French history, rural traditions and customs and enjoy seeking out the reality behind the myths. I run my own copywriting business and write short stories and the occasional novel in my spare time. My husband appears here as the SF, which stands for Statistics Freak, owing to his penchant for recording numbers about everything.
