Anyone out there?
Please say hello if you are.
Welcome to my blog. Writing a blog is something I’ve resisted for quite some time, I mean, who would be interested in what I’ve got to say? But friends and media-savvy author folks assure me it’s a case of ‘Blog or Get Bogged.’ And just to prove that Technophobia is a condition that can be treated, not only do I now blog, I also skype, facebook, wiki, and web site my way through cyberspace.
After checking out numerous blogs I knew I had to give mine a name that was profound. A name that would pique your interest to read more. I decided that much of my writing life could be summarised as such: ‘Think … Create … Duck!’ And yes, duck can be used with every connotation you can think of: a moment of feathered creative genius; to dodge or avoid something to escape a blow (think vitriolic reviewers or literary egotists); a big fat score of nothing; or the most obvious one of all – its rhyming capacity.
In the lifetime of this blog, I hope to explain them all.
Welcome to my world.
Today I recommended you to a woman called ‘Monica’ so you may be hearing from her. Another budding children’s author.
