A year! it has been a year since I started writing.

FIrst year of writing, Emerging Writer, Meghan Brewster

22nd September 2013 – This is kind of a big post.  Well, an important post at least.

FIrst year of writing, Emerging Writer, Meghan BrewsterIt has been a year since I decided to leave working in a cafe and start writing full time.

  • Now a year later I am working one day a week in a cafe to get me out of the house and keep me sane.  I had originally planned to not work anywhere and just write full time, but now I know that will never work for me.  I like having a bit of extra money, but more importantly than that, I get a great deal of my ideas when I am out of the house working and chatting with people.  Working at the Cafe sort of feeds my writing I guess.  Writing is now my larger source of income.

It has been a year since I created this online diary and set up this writers website.

  • I am so proud to look back on the last year and see how much I have learnt in such a short amount of time.  When I started this website I knew nothing about how it might work.  I had to look on youtube to watch tutorials and ask Facebook and my Twitter friends

It has been a year since I did any painting of any kind

Now I am going to reflect on they year that has passed, and try to figure out some mistakes I don’t want to make again.

I must make a PLAN for next year.

    This tip was something i really needed to read. Grammar had always been one of my greatest fears when writing, as it was all that ever got marked up when writing papers for school. i’ll just focus on coherent sentences and no longer concern myself with all the squiggly green underlines in word (and my peer edits that are all grammar related).

      You will get better and better the more you practice. I have started to learn a bit about grammar, just to make sure I am on the right track.
