Events Writing News


Over the past fews years, I have taken a hiatus from painting, and I have been focusing on writing.

Writing, like painting, has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. As a child, I wrote short stories, and created my own cartoon stories with illustrations. I’ve always enjoyed writing fiction, non-fiction, and poetry.

Since 2019, I have attended the Surrey International Writers Conference each year. This is an excellent conference for all writers, from beginner to published. No matter where you are on the writing journey, there is always something to learn. Beyond that, this conference is a wonderfully welcoming environment where writers can connect with other writers.

As of yesterday, I just finished participating in NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) for the first time. It was a challenge, but I managed to write every day, and reached the goal of 50,000 words – 50,247 to be exact – in November. It has been an enlightening experience, as I discover what I’m capable of, and how to just let writing flow. This will be the foundation for my first draft of my fantasy novel.
