I was reminded the other day that I haven’t done an update recently about my personal writing and editing activities. So here’s a quick summary!
OWL: Okanagan-South Writers’ League: I continue to be actively involved with our local writers’ group. You can find out more about us at our OWL Facebook page.
Word Guild South Okanagan: I also attend this writers’ group!
Okanagan Valley Writers’ Festival is happening this weekend, and I’m really looking forward to it. Check out the website and our Facebook page, which I do admin for.
Pen And Paper Mama Services is my business name, and you can find out more about the tutoring end of my business at my penandpapermama website … and I’d be delighted if you’d “like” and “follow” my business Facebook page! And of course, I’d also be delighted if you’d “like” and “follow” my normajhill site which you are on right now 🙂
I’ve been leading STEPS creative writing workshops for youth this winter and spring at the Shatford Center. It’s been a lot of fun and I’m sure I’ve learned as much or more than the youth 🙂 Find out more about STEPS here.
I’ve also recently done a workshop on “Self-Editing Tips and Tricks” for the writers’ group in West Kelowna.
And I’ve been working on my Summerland stories, editing the old ones, and creating new ones, using my new copy of Scrivener writing software, which I’m finding really helpful! My goal is to publish them in book form!
I’m also continuing to write on my blogs 2 or 3 times a week, and continue to work on some of my other writing projects, including my “family stories,” my Haida Gwaii stories, and more. And I’ve been taking a course on how to write excellent sentences (from The Great Courses website).
Oh! And of course, I’m continuing to do editing.
And that’s about it! (Enough, I’d say 🙂 )

I just finished the first draft of another contemporary comedy romance set in Cawston. This is the third one in a series. The second one is still under consideration by Harlequin. I’m hoping they’ll love the whole series. While I’m taking a mental break from that story, I’m writing a mini romance very loosely inspired by Little Red Riding Hood. That one I intend to self-pub as an e-book.
Thanks, Aggie! You’re an inspiration! It was great to see you at the Okanagan Valley Writers’ Festival and hear about all your writing adventures! Way to go!
