Happy New Writing Year – Moving Forward in 2023

It’s episode 177, a very short catch-up episode before the guests start coming thick and fast over the next few weeks and months, but I’m going to talk a bit about feedback and critique, getting through tough writing times and giving you an idea of who we’ve got coming up on future episodes.

In preparation for this episode I had a quick listen to the introduction to the last show I put out all the way back in August and it’s clear to me now why I (subconsciously or otherwise) decided to take a break. I was very much in the doldrums with my writing, plodding away on the endless treadmill of rejection while I submitted my book, Safe Hands. There was also stuff going on in my personal life that was taking the shine off my normally positive exterior. The good news is I’m now back, feeling more positive than I have for a while and with lots of plans for the year to come and beyond.

So this little episode sets up the year ahead and gets us all ready for a happy, healthy and productive 2023. Who’s in?
