Practical Creative Writing has been selected as one of the top 20 Creative Writing Blogs

I am over the moon.

It’s great to know I’m doing something right especially since I do everything on the site myself.

It’s been a learning process and not always easy, but I have loved every minute of it.

I love creative writing and enjoy being able to share my thoughts and tips with others, especially beginners.

I know what it is like when you are starting out and my own writing journey has had its share of ups and downs.

It’s particularly inspiring for me when I get letters and comments from other writers and it is always great to hear from people from all the different corners of the writing world.

One of the things I personally enjoy as a writer is using exercises to generate new ideas and stories.

I also very much like creating inspiring exercises for others.

So it has been very rewarding for me to know that so many of you use the exercises and that you’ve found them inspiring too.

I never seem to run out of ideas, or stories and I put this down to writing regularly.

If you’ve been here before you will already know I place great emphasis on the importance of writing regularly.

You will also have learned that once you start to do this your mind rewards you with more ideas.

It has been four years now since I created this site and I would encourage other writers to do the same – if you want your work to be read.

I hope to continue to provide information and help for writers and want to say a great big thank you for visiting this site.

Your comments have meant such a lot to me!

You’re great and I couldn’t have done this without your support.

Best wishes

    Hi Grace, loving your blog and all the tips you share. I myself have started a blog called writerbees.com where I blog about my writing journey and share everything I know about the creative process. It’s great to see successful bloggers who have been doing this for some time. Thank you for the motivation.
