Mapping my mind…

Following on from my post about stationary I’m about to dive head first into the world of plotting.  I’m not a big plotter I’ve always been a ‘seat of you pants’ writer, but seeing as I keep getting stuck something must change.  I always resolve to change my methods but never do, so time for … Continue reading

The downfall of technology…

I count myself as a modern girl.  I’m typing this from my lovely new-ish mac book pro, my house holds every modern console on the market (mainly due to a gadget obsessed hub), I have a 3d TV (that we hardly ever use the 3D function on), blu-ray player, surround sound, a coffee machine, and … Continue reading

Missing: Mojo – if found please return.

I’ve lost my mojo. For writing, for my day job, for home, for everything.  I feel lost.  That’s not a word I use lightly.  In fact it took me several minutes to choose that word.

Writing, writing, writing…

Alone again…

Last night I watched as my hub went through check in and disappeared for at least four months. If you’ve read my previous blogs you’ll know this isn’t the first tour we’ve been through.  There has been Iraq, Afghanistan and he was on a short trip to Germany (one week); when he was re-directed to Italy … Continue reading

My name is Natalie and I fail to finish…

Ok, so I’ve admitted it. I really struggle to finish any book I start.  I don’t know why. Here’s my incriminating history: S – Sci-fi – Was plotted so finely I knew everything that was going to happen.  I wrote in a bizarre style where I would write whichever chapter or scene took my fancy … Continue reading

NNWG

I’m astounded by the creativity and imaginations of my fellow writers within the nomad novelist writers group (NNWG).  We have our first weekend meet up, seven of the nine of us are going, tomorrow in Oxford. Over the past two weeks, mainly today, I’ve been critiquing 2000 words of each attendees work. I am so … Continue reading

Welcome to my blog!

Welcome along. I don’t know how you found me, but I’m glad you did. I’ve created this place to blog about life as an air force wife and to gain other peoples experiences. Why now?  I’ve been thinking about it for a while, but now because, true to form, the air force have yet again messed … Continue reading
