Flashback ... and crocodile eggs

I found something I wrote 3 years ago which really should be on this blog ... a journal entry about my desire to get back into writing.  I didn't write much on Ink Island back then, as life was pretty crazy with younger children home full time and writing, much as I loved it, came about 17th in my list of priorities.  When I had a rare chance to write, I chose my pen and paper journal, home education blog or on home ed forums.

Now for something other writers might find useful ... here's an article I wrote and had published in a magazine (my memory is shocking, and I forget now whether it was in print or an ezine) in 2006 ... Crocodile Eggs for Writers.

Are you quick to share your ideas, or cautious?


  1. I share my ideas with a few trusted people - namely my 2 critique partners. we've worked together for over a year and have built up a level of trust that we know we would never stomp on each other's ideas but instead build them up and encourage them.

  2. Very interesting thoughts about sharing ideas. In work places today, people are increasingly cautious about sharing thier crude unrefined ideas, for fears of being ridiculed, but in these ideas lie tomorrow's innovations.


What's on your mind?
