Thanks for joining me! This is my newest blog, and I hope it will be my most successful blog. Blogs are places to download ideas and send them out to the world. Or they can be simply places to write anything at all, and perhaps connect with people who are interested in the same things as you. These are both fine things.
Or blogs can be a showcase of a person’s work, showing what they have done in the past, and what they are doing now, and/or what they have planned for the future. This is the kind of blog I want this one to be, a blog showcasing my writing from the past (books written), looking at what I’m working on at the moment, and then looking at things I have planned for the future (possible books, events, etc).
I am involved in a few different writing-related groups, and was recently re-elected as President of one of these groups, the one I helped set up quite a time ago. Adelaide Plains Poets (APP) is the name of the group, and I consider it to be a fine group indeed. I am proud of our work, and am grateful for the executive committee who work together well. I love working with the rest of the group members too, of course , as we all work together on our own writing.
They say a good leader is more about ‘we’ than ‘I’. That is certainly the way I lead APP, leading the group by showing ways for the group to do things together, and to succeed. The President is only as good as the group – if the President can shape the group, guide the group and inspire the group, what a wonderful time group members will have! That’s how I want it to be, inspiring others, spreading the love of the written and spoken word, sharing, teaching and learning too.
I hope you find this blog to be inspiring, and perhaps teaches you new writing related things. I have other blogs, and will have links to those blogs, as appropriate, but this will be my most important blog for now, and into the future … Teaching and inspiring other people is one of my greatest joys, I hope you find inspiration here!
