Antonia's Writing Blog

Here I am. 5th November 2008, my first writing related Blog. My first Blog ever in actual fact. I hope to talk about my current writing projects, and log a kind of writer's diary. I'm giving myself three years (so that's by 5th November 2011) to have written a publishable novel and to have written a successful radio play or theatre play.

I want to do lots more too, like have some short stories published, and maybe get a place in a comp or two, or three...or four!

  1. Hey Higgs,

    You did it! Well done to you, I love your blog - very colourful, especially the picture.

    I've been struggling this morning with mine. My lines breaks kept disappearing. After messing around for hours I found the problem in the settings.

    How's Lancs going? Are you close to getting your 60 points? I see you want to do the MA...that's quite an undertaking but I'm sure you'll sail through.

    Are you doing any courses this autumn?

  2. Hi, Mel. Thanks! I'll have to play around with it because the pic is too big!

    I'm about to enrol on three courses, the first one starting in January 2009.I've sent in my MA application so fingers and toes crossed and I'll update you on that!

  3. Fabulous picture - that should inspire you! I like the idea of a 3-year plan. Good luck with all of it and I will enjoy following this blog.

  4. Thanks, Kath. I need to find my way around the Blog first. I want it to look good and have items easily accessible, but I'm not 100% sure what the heck I'm doing yet!! I need the time to sort it, so it might have to be done at the weekend.

    I do intend to have lots of writing stuff on here though!

  5. Hi Higgi, thanks for the invite! Loving the blog! Did you know you'd invited me to be a contributor too? That means I could post blog entries. I'm not sure that's what you want, so you can remove that function and just make me a reader if you want.

  6. Hi, sal! Sugar, I don't think I know what I'm doing. Can you still post if you're not a contributor?

  7. Higgs, you sent me 2 invites as well, one to be a contributor and one to view it. I just accepted the second as I assumed that's what you meant!

  8. I can read and post comments, but not blog posts, which I wouldn't want to post anyway. I only accepted as I didn't know what the set up was till I got here. If you go into settings, then permissions, there should be a function to remove me as a contributor. You may then need to invite me as a reader again, but that's fine by me :-)

  9. Okay, I'll take people off the contributor list I think, then you can all comment can't you? Yikes.

  10. Higgs wonderful to hear from you. I don't really understand this blogging stuff but here I am - managed to get this far. Off to Portugal in the morning -but shall look in when I get back. Meanwhile good luck with the MA. I'm sure it will be fun. Love to all my old friends Maryx

  11. Thanks, Mary, And if you're still around enjoy Portugal! Pop back when you're suitably recovered from the biting wind that will surely greet you once you've landed back on home turf.

  13. Hey up, and hello to everyone! This is all very nice. Good idea to give yourself specific goals, Higgi. Your notes should come in the post today, or possibly tomorrow.

  14. Kate, they came today! Thanks so much. I'm going to expand it a bit and look at the points that let it down, then send it to BBC Writersroom. Fingers crossed.

  15. Good luck, Higgi! It was a fantastic play, so I do hope they like it.

    BTW I tried to email you yesterday but it bounced back. Can you drop me an email with your email address to check I've got the right one on file?

  16. I've sent you my e mail address, Sally.

  17. Hi Higgi, It's been an age since I last wrote but sometimes Google doesn't like me and refuses to let me on. But first time tonight so that's somthing. Now I don't know what to write. Ar yes I remember Happy Christmas to all my old friends and you too of course. I've finished my book Granny Mary's War - just busy placing photos and drawings in Bye for now Love Mary.
