Jane runs regular writing workshops and speaks at literary festivals all over the world. Many of her ideas strike during morning dog-jogs along the beach followed by a dip in the sea - no matter how cold it is!

Picture Your Character

My Husband's Wife by Jane Corry My Husband's Wife by Jane CorryToday I finished making my picture board for the novel I am currently writing!

Sometimes I need to write a few chapters before I can see my characters clearly in my head.

Then I start leafing through supplements and mags to find anyone who looks similar. Often I will have two or three different pictures for one person. One might have my imagined character's wistful expression. Another might ha... Read more of this blog post »

Jane Corry liked a quote
Sea Fever by John Masefield
Sea-fever

I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.”
John Masefield

“The fact that you no longer have a right to grieve for someone you once shared your life with makes the pain even worse.  •”
Jane Corry, My Husband's Wife

“There are times when you’ll find yourself swearing that blue is black. You’ll truly believe it yourself. We all do it. It’s not that lawyers lie. It’s that they twist the real facts to make another world that everyone else believes in, too. And who’s to say that won’t be a better world?”
Jane Corry, My Husband's Wife

“Did you know that the average person produces enough saliva to fill two swimming pools during their life?”
