It could be the (gorgeous) weather, or the fact that I’ve been engrossed in The (unputdownable) Hunger Games trilogy by Suzanne Collins or that the hard drive’s gone on my laptop but whatever it is, my mind has gone a bit floppy: I have lost my writing mojo! Any ideas on how to get it back?
I am going out today.. ahem, via the outdoor swimming pool in Chipping Campden… to try to find it!! (it’s research!)
But enough of my moaning.
Here’s the Writers Bureau’s latest FREE monthly competition – this time you can win one of their “How to Write for Competitions – and Win!”courses.
You just have to answer 5 literary questions (but be quick – you’ve only got until 31st May!) And to get you started (as if you didn’t know), the answer to the first question is William Shakespeare.
And if you think it’s outrageous that Shakespeare should leave only the ‘second-best bed’ to his wife Anne Hathaway (many people obviously think that was an insult) then Poet Laureate Carol Ann Duffy has a theory about that. She reckons that it was a private joke between the two of them – perhaps the second-best bed was where they first ‘got together’ and her romantic poem here, expresses that sentiment beautifully.
Right, I’m off. Now, where did I put those armbands….?
