Assignment Blogging 101

HELLO! (Assignment 1)   WHO I AM and a bit of WHY I am here.

My name is Faye and I’m delighted to be able to be part of this course.   I am reasonably confident around a computer but lost totally in the new technology. I have a private website:  where I have for a number of years put ‘personal revelations etc’.   This has not been interactive like this blogging site and being a simple site is just that SIMPLE.

I am a fiction writer and my first novel is published.    This course will help me to begin at the beginning and hopefully learn and not be grappling in the dark (technologically speaking).   Please bear with me I   would like to be of help to others on the journey so would welcome anyone’s questions about writing, aging, holding on to faith in a broken world,  etc etc.

While I have always written in a journal daily this is a new and challenging discipline.  Thank you for the opportunity and greeting to ALL on the journey.

I need to learn a lot of the basics like tags, so will return to the email to get more info.   I would like to connect with other fiction writers.  At the end of the year my hope is that I can successfully navigate around wordpress and maybe even be of help to someone else.  Cheers!

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
