I really sympathise, because it's something I have had to struggle with many times. If you do a google search, you'll find many sites with good suggestions for helping you to overcome the problem. What is it you want to write that you can't write? If you already have a story in your head, just try scribbling some notes. Who the characters are, what sort of world they live in. Anything. Seriously, I would advise you to just write ANYTHING that comes into your head! Write a scene where your character goes shopping, or meets someone, or has a sword-fight, rides a horse, anything at all. Write down a dream you had. Describe a cat. Honestly, just write anything at all that comes into your head - then your page won't be blank any more. Writing will seem much less scary, and soon you'll find yourself writing more and more. Don't feel you have to start at the beginning and not stop until you reach the end, because that is intimidating. What I do is build up little scenes here and there, and eventually fit them all together like a jigsaw. I really hope this helps, and good luck!(less)

Edge-Lit 4 - A report from a Happy Camper

The annual Edge-Lit event, a one-day literary festival held in Derby, gets better and better each year. This year’s, held on 11th July, was the best yet. More big name authors, more readers and writers, more indie presses, more panels – more of everything. There was such a great buzz about the day, yet everything was fun and relaxed. And what a great chance to catch up with friends. I bumped into Read more of this blog post »

“Rosie, maybe I'm a masochist, but I think the world of you. You're the most beautiful girl I've ever seen and you've got no idea. You think it's any fun for me to sit here being loathed by you? I'm in love with you.”
Freda Warrington, Elfland

“Brutal worlds where females are secondary to the action, mere chattels or bargaining counters, may be realistic, but they’re not for me. I aim to write women who are genuine.”
Freda Warrington

“I rarely write about magic in the waving wands, Harry Potter sense. Usually “magic” isn’t even mentioned because it isn’t a separate power, it’s part of the natural world.”
Freda Warrington
