The world of writing is a bit like busses. Nothing for a ages and then three things come along all at once. Or sometimes four.
In 2007 I wrote a book entitled Fundraising for a Community Project, which explains to community groups in a clear and easy-to-understand way, how to apply for grant money from various funding organisations.
Writing may be a solitary occupation at times, but not all of the time. Today, I was part of Wellington Festival’s Meet The Author event. A group of us (what is the collective noun for a group of writers?) gathered in the library and set out our stalls.
Publishing is a numbers game. When a book is published, nobody really knows how many copies it will sell. They might be able to guess a rough figure during its first six months of sales, especially if the author has a track record. (Dan Brown will probably sell one or two copies when his new one comes out next month.)
If there’s one thing that Ludlow does well, it’s food. Local food. Well, food from the immediate environs of Shropshire, Herefordshire, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and the neighbouring Welsh counties (Powys, Monmouthshire, et al).
I’ve a new post on my Business of Writing blog for writers this morning: Spacebar trampolining.
