The Modest Writers in My Family

I thought it was about time I updated everyone on my writing progress. As it stands I have a number of, shall we say projects going on. Main one being my novel currently called Purple. a 104,000 word monster of a book. (for me) After saying that it truly is the most satisfying thing I have ever done.

Also I have written many short stories and have four more novels started, more outlined. Also I’m thinking about having a go at a stage play, just need a bit more research on that one.

Purple is in its third draft and doing well on feedback so far. I’m still finding spelling mistakes and plot holes. the iron that is revisions is doing a great job of smoothing them out.

Thanks again for the emails, I must be feeling good today I’m full of thanks. I might as well thank my family members who have commented recently. some great comments and surprise’s. It seems that I have many Budding writers in my family and shows me where I get my love for writing from. my father was a published poet he also has written six children story books. I have a cousin who is an editor and a aunty who has written her own novel. My brother writes poetry that would make any man laugh and cry. My uncle has released two self biographies, you can get them on amazon called John Carter.

Recently I have found that my brother-in-law is starting a short story, another cousin has gone down the creative writing route know doubt she can teach all of us a thing or two.

I suppose I’m trying to say that we writers seem to be modest by nature, and it’s only when we begin to talk about what we do that we find out how much we all have in common.

  1. Well done again steve, look forward to reading it one day , you’ll have to autograph a copy for me.
    By the way I have written three books. Writing must be in our jeans.

  2. Hello Steven, writing most certainly is in or gens! I could say, I wish someone was in mine!lol but I won’t!lol This family is fully of creativity. All three of my boys write, generally song writing. Your cousin Johnathon, Julies son, also writes songs and so does his 12 year old only son. I think it must be something to do with us all coming from such black stuff of the Midlands and the life of working class folk. Hard times bring on the creative nature in my humble opinion, especially in poetry and song writing.

    It is good to get it out of your soul and onto the page of life. I look forward to reading more of your purple prose.

    Smiling at you

    Bobby, aka Tai a poet till the day she fries!lol x
