My Writing

I’m never happier than when I’m writing. 

At the moment I’m writing a book based on the logbooks of my local village school. It encompasses many features of education in rural schools in England from 1867 to 1967. It’s fun to write and I hope it will be fun to read!It will be published early in 2011, all profits to the school.

I have written short stories, features and articles. I wrote a piece about a suspected  Guy Fawkes saboteur, an ex scholar of Winchester college.  Just  type ‘Parboiled head, anyone?’ into the ‘search’ box when you get to the  Scribd site.

I live in a cottage in a converted workhouse and was fascinated to write about one of the  residents, Ellen, who lived here in 1881. This article was one of several, published in a local newspaper.  

I’ll write about any subject that captures my imagination and interest.   A recent trip to China resulted in my write-up being featured in a national magazine.

As a spin-off from my Confidence Coaching I have written a short Self-Help book called,

‘Choose Confidence – Step by Step.’ I hope to publish it as an ebook.

So…why am I writing this blog?

I hope that the discipline of writing something worthwhile every day and posting it three days a week, will develop my writing skills, as well as encouraging you to…

Look for the Positive Spin that makes a difference.
