Happy Thursday and it feels like Friday


Happy Thursday and it feels like Friday

It feels like Friday because today is the last day of my working week. Happy dance! From Friday I will be on a week’s leave. A small thing to be grateful for but I am. My week’s leave will include a short break to the Sunshine Coast, then I’ll be embarking on some serious writing. I know the weather will be perfect for reading beside a pool or at the beach (I might fit a bit in) but I have writing deadlines to meet. I must point out though – every writer should read. Perhaps I can figure out a way that my laptop won’t reflect sunlight and work outside. Surely there’s a screen I can add. There’s another thing to Google this week. Anyone know where I can get one?

Warm Witty Words writing tips

You might thinking, where has Donna been? She hasn’t posted for weeks. I haven’t travelled anywhere (oh, unless you count where I go in my head, like Zanzibar, Borneo, USA, Kenya and the Northern Territory). I’ve been writing and organising upcoming writing work. I love my blog and the readers of my blog, but as a writer, the most important thing is to write. I have lots of exciting things in the pipeline that I’ll be sharing later. For now I’ll just leave you with a writing tip and promise I’ll do a post on the Sunshine Coast Readers and Writers Festival. I’ll be attending the event on Sunday. I love the vibe of these sorts of festival. I always walk away enthused to write and full of ideas. If you’re up that way (it is at Coolum) why not check it out?

The latest reviews of The Zanzibar Moon:

“I just read your book and luvved it. I laughed. I cried and I’m inspired. Thanks for all the emotions. Hurry up with the next one. I’m telling all my friends.”

“Just finished The Zanzibar Moon. F#$@&! brilliant book.”

“I got told about your book by a friend. It’s been highly recommended as a erotic, but fun read. I can’t wait to begin.”

“It makes me want to go back to Zanzibar. Wow, you really sent the reader there. Oh yeah and Kendwa is hot, hot, hot.”

“I can’t wait for the sequel. I want to know what happens next. I was really invested in the characters.”

“I love the style of writing. It’s quirky and easy-to-read and it brings out the emotions of the characters nicely. Loved it.”

I love walking the beautiful bottom walking track towards Tallebudgera Creek entrance.

A look back at Warm Witty Words blog posts

This blog has run (in one form or other) since mid 2010. This year two weeks before the launch of The Zanzibar Moon the blog will turn 7 years old. Looking back on some old posts has seen a progression in the things I write about. I try to keep the writing interesting and not about me the writer, but rather about subjects that may interest my readers. Here’s a recap of some posts from the last seven years.

  1. Inspiration comes in many forms
  2. A day in the writing life of a book marketing publicist
  3. Summer Bliss
  4. Kicking off fitness workout
  5. My 12 favourite things about being a writer
  6. Finally relaxing on the Sunshine Coast
  7. Top 10 tips to stay in shape after fifty
  8. Running for a cause Get on Board
  9. I now have a website and I’m guest blogging
  10. Week one writing goals (this is a flash back to 2015 and my original The Zanzibar Moon idea as Finding My Tarzan).

If you have any suggestions about what you would like me to write about just comment below. It could be; menopause, health and fitness, writing books, self publishing, book marketing, volunteering, gratitude or anything else that interests women. Thanks again for reading.
