Lightly Done

Lightly Done will a monthly blog exploring the possibilities for those of us who believe that age is just a number and life is for living. My intention is to post during the first weekend of every month.

Each month I will thank some one who has helped me to come out of the shadows to admit that I am a writer with news and ideas to share.

I have been amazed by the generosity of so many established writers. It was more than ten years ago that I came across Randy Ingermanson’s Fiction Newsletter and realised that anything is possible if only I hang on to my dreams and never give up. Questions published in Randy’s E-zine fitted all my needs –

  • You always wanted to write a novel but didn’t know how to get started.
  • You started writing your novel and want to learn how to write better.
  • You finished writing your novel and need to polish it.
  • You revised your novel and want to get it published.
  • You published your novel and want to market it.

I have enjoyed Randy’s E-zine ever since and know of no better way of organising my thoughts and exploring ideas for a new novel than by using Randy Ingermanson’s Snowflake method.

This month I have been asked by a new writer how she should use her journal and I found myself wondering what draws late-comers to creative writing instead of any other art form. Is it to share memories and experiences or to create a new world of ideas and possibilities. Is it something you want to do or that you have to do, impelled by the plot or characters of your own creation?
