Writing Essentials Guest Blog

Morgen Bailey, a writer who supports writers with interviews and guest blogs on her sites, has written a guest blog for me at nancyellendodd.com called “Writing Essentials.” Morgen lives in the UK and is a prolific writer. One of the things she excels at is creating a writing presence on the web. She has turned her success into a new business helping others to create their own blog sites.

      1. Absolutely, Nicole. I often write when I’m walking my dog (usually the pieces for my http://morgenbailey.wordpress.com/5pm-fiction slot) but sometimes I walk for an hour just thinking with a blank brain. Strangely rain and wind doesn’t help (I usually use paper but have a dictaphone) and whilst I’m far from a moody person, I have to be in the right one to write (and usually with classical music only or silence).
