I don’t know about you but I am always fascinated with the story behind a piece of writing and therefore it’s no surprise how intrigued I am to know about the history behind Christmas carols. Here are some of the best stories I’ve discovered about five of the most famous carols.
It’s that time of year again and while our Christmases are meant to be merry and bright (and for some, white), if we’re honest with ourselves there’s probably been an occasion or two when, surrounded by drunk relatives, we’ve secretly harboured the desire to serve up the Christmas pudding with a side of poison.
I’m addicted to podcasts. I listen to them in the car and on the train. I fall asleep with my headphones on. And as I’ve been promising to release the Writing Journey Co podcast for about a year now (and still haven’t launched) I thought I’d put together this list of writing related radio shows that you can cut your teeth (ears??) on in the meantime.
National Novel Writing Month aka NaNoWriMo is nearly upon us and you know what that means? A whole month of literary abandon where your challenge is to write the end on a 50,000 word manuscript. Sounds impossible but it’s doable—I promise!
