If I Write it, They will come…Not! Learning to Be a Better Writer!
Elise Welburn Martin

I just love the sentiments in this piece Elise. I am one of those who has always wanted to write a book, but never got round to making a start. Now I am retired I think I should push myself, though I have lowered my sites to short stories.

I have tried over the years to develop my creativity through photography and I was wondering if you have ever tried to combine your photography with your writing. I’d love to hear your thoughts on that. I have thought about using my photographs as the stimulus for a story.

Equally I did a degree in Sociology and the analysis of people in society has never let me go. I want to try to write stories where the theme is simply social effects on people’s actions. What do you think ?

Keep up the good work.
