Words and Scenes Blog page
To my readers,
Thank you for your patience as I have taken a rest from blogging this past year.
I hope you have enjoyed the re-posted blogs, even if you have read them before. Re-posting my blogs has enabled me to continue to keep this site ‘live’.
I’ve been an article-writer mostly, but this has slowed right down, and I’m sure that is for good reason because I need time for my next project: I have decided to write my personal story in a book!
I’ve not written a book before, though I have toyed with some ideas. However, this project is something much more personal, which is why you won’t see any more about it yet.
I plan to write blogs fortnightly, or monthly if need be, until the end of this year, and then reassess again, so – as they say – watch this space.
The blog categories:
Although writing will continue to take centre stage for the blogs, there will be some on photography too.
Make use of the Search box!
Because there are over 200 blogs in the archive, you may want to make use of the Google or WordPress boxes search to help you find previous blogs of interest.
You will find these in the sidebar on the right side of the page, beside the blogs.
You can also click on the words ‘Older Entries’ in red at the bottom of the blogs, and it will open up earlier blogs in reverse chronological order.
The blogs are the main purpose of the Words and Scenes site, so please check them out.
If you would like to receive them regularly as an e-mail, simply add your name and e-mail address in the subscriber form on the right side of this page.
Don’t worry: you can unsubscribe any time you want.
I don’t rent, sell or give e-mail addresses to anyone!
