Thank you so much for visiting my website. I’ve endeavoured to share a little about myself and my journey as a writer which I hope (if you’re an aspiring writer), you’ll find useful.

I would encourage you to comment where you are moved to do so, as we all have learnings, opinions and thoughts that are useful to others.

For specific queries please do feel free to contact me personally. Simply visit the ‘Let’s Connect’ page where you will find a range of ways to get in touch. If you are a professional writer and would like to know more about writing in the workplace, whether it’s in the publishing or corporate environment, you may find my sister website create.eviemcrae.com more useful to your needs.

It is in my intention in due course to post details about forthcoming publications of my work, but for now, let’s just get to know each other and share the knowledge, the trials and the tribulations of being a writer.

Happy reading and good luck with your writing.

Oh and mind you step over the would-be authors lying by the wayside pounding their fists while crying “Why? Why? Why?” It’s been a bit of an …

So you’re writing a novel. Where do you start?

People generally ask how one attempts to write a whole novel. Sure, it’s one word, followed by another, but which words? My professional experience taught me one thing about the writing process. There are two types of people when it comes to writing. Those who are terrified and intimidated by the blank page, and those who …
