Being a writer is hard. It’s not a job, it’s a lifestyle choice. In Writer’s Corner, find all my tips and tricks for surviving the whole journey from untamed plot bunnies through to a fully completed manuscript and everything a writer needs to get from “once upon a time” to “happily ever after”.

In this section find all my tips on how to maximise your editing efficiency without losing the core of your story (or your will to live).
