Writing is something I have dabbled with since childhood. Yet I never quite know where I fit in. I have tried poetry, children’s fiction and adult fiction and non-fiction (check out my other older blog at https://murtaghsmeadow.wordpress.com/). I’ve completed writing courses, met, and become friends with some amazing and gifted writers, even sent things to publishers and agents. However, with the exception of two short stories, my writing remains on my computer.

In deciding to blog, I thought it may be away of exploring my writing. I am hoping it will be a way of focusing my mind and building my confidence. My other blog deals with my other two loves – nature and gardening. I feel confident talking and writing about both those. Writing is another matter. I love it too, but when it comes to hitting the blue ‘publish’ button I hesitate. It took me a week to build up the courage to publish my first two assignments from the blogging 101 course – but I did it and so this is start of the adventure. I’d be delighted if you’d join me.






  1. You have a lovely site. I especially love your header photo on the home page. And the only thing I’d say about your hesitancy concerning your writing is keep hitting the publish button. The more you hit it, the more encouraging comments can come your way. As a creative writing teacher, I can tell you for sure that regular blogging is one of the best exercises in writing that is available today. I strongly encourage all my writing students to create a blog and work at it regularly. Blogs can often open doors to many other publishing avenues as well.

  2. I started my blog a few years ago because I like writing too. I have been lucky enough to have had some articles published in U.K. Sailing magazines, along with my photos, although it’s hard to think of myself as a professional writer! So keep up the good work, and keep posting those posts!
