I don’t like reading.
Yes, that’s right. I think it’s time to come clean with you all and admit that I’m a writer who doesn’t like reading.
So when I saw this week that the UK Telegraph published the list of ‘100 novels everyone should read‘ I decided to set myself a goal: I would read every one of the books on that list before I die.
I then did what every person does when they see a list like that and counted how many on the list I’d already read.
It’s time to do my very own ‘Blog Hop’ where I answer 6 questions that reveal my writing process and why I write. Kel from the Naughty Corner of Social Niceties posted her blog hop last week and kindly passed the baton to me.
I’ve also nominated three of my favourite bloggers (and favourite people, come to think of it) to do the same.

This is my first post as a Guest Blogger for ABC Open
Type ‘being a writer is…’ into a Google search and it suggests the following top searches:
- Being a writer is lonely
- Being a writer is hard
- Being a writer is like having homework
- Being a writer is depressing
Now, that’s certainly a depressing Google search! But is loneliness something that all writers have to suffer?
Read my Guest Blogger piece on ABC Open for my top 5 tips on how to turn writing into less of solitary hobby and more of something enjoyable you can share with others – and you’ll find that the quality of your writing will improve at the same time.
