Writing. Or Freedom from Deadlines

You may start with a blank page, a blank notebook, a blank post-it note, but filling it is as simple as beginning with a single word. Any word which gets you started.

Freedom from deadlines isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. Having finished my uni work and handed in my assignments, I now feel as though I have no purpose. It’s not just for now. I always feel like this after hand-ins. So, I’ve been searching for things to do. I know I have a novel to work on, but I need a little break first before commiting myself to another large piece of writing.

What did I find? Writing competitions/submissions. Not necessarily to enter, but to give me ideas of what I might like to write. So that I might choose a subject and get writing again.

Some choices:

Mslexia – run competitions and have lots of valuable information in their Mslexia magazine, or on their website href=”http://www.mslexia.co.uk

Arvon – Run competition(s), writing courses covering all sorts of subjects such as poetry, short stories, novel writing aimed at various levels of ability, and writing retreats too. Take a look at their website http://www.arvon.org/
