INKSPILL: A Video from Guest Writer William Gallagher



William has been kind enough to send us a video to start the evening session, so sit back and enjoy this wonderful insight.

Once again William, a BIG Thank You for giving us your time and wisdom!





Spending Time in the Big Pool – Real Writers


Had a truly inspiring day in the writer’s workshop – learnt lots – there is no better teacher than experience and no better facilitator than someone who is a living, breathing writer. Very grateful to Heidi and Ian and Keith Lindsay for a wonderful, bountiful day!

And the coffee – appreciated after a 3hr sleep! 30+ pages of notes to digest and lots of food for thought.

Came home told Mr. G. excitedly about my day with the big fish & then emailed my NaPoWriMo poem to Iain Banks, Mr. G. said he would appreciate it – hope he likes it half as much as Mr. G.

And now to my desk (or laptop on settee) to complete my NaNoWriMo writing at camp (@ least 1500 wds are needed) – I am already filled with inspiration for my NaPoWriMo poem for the day.

If I can stay awake I will have a look around the past 24hrs too!

Happy Writing!


Camp NaNoWriMo Day 4# 4/30 Another Sunny Day



Another day of sunshine in camp, the manuscript is developing, although I have started jumping forwards a little and will need to come back to fill in the gaps later. I confess (rebel warning) the current word count (1500) entered today was written and ‘banked’ from the overspill of Wednesday’s writing, as I am busy today and won’t get to write until this evening.

I have been into camp to have a walk about, add word count and copy my stats.
