A funny (and embarrassingly true) look at the journey of a writer.
I laughed when I read this post as I recognised all the ‘author poses’ listed. As well as being a funny look at the typical ‘author pose’, it also made me determined to make sure I come up with something original when I do my own ‘author pose’ one day!

Humourously outlines all those amateur mistakes we writers make when we first start writing by speaking with a fictional character who is the result of bad writing. (I’m sure a few of our NaNoWriMo characters are still in this stage until we go back and start editing.)

If you’re a writing mum like me, I’m sure you will relate!
Type in a modern word and it will tell you the equivalent word Jane Austen would have used.
