Much To Do About Writing.
This is my journal about my experiences and thoughts on writing, with particular reference to writing for children and the education market, but maybe a few other things mixed in.
Apologies to all those people that I should have got back to and have not. I have a very busy schedule at the moment. I will get back to you... I promise. And if I don't - send me a reminder.
I like to fool myself I work best to deadlines. But, now another 'Deadline' is looming and hopefully I will get the book finished on time. All I need to do is focus my mind. LOL! It is the first of a series of four books on ICT and will hopefully be out on the shelves by Jan 2011. I will let you know more soon.
Got a series of pictures books on Shapes due out Sept 2010. Keep a look out for them. When the covers are through I will post them here on my blog.
Meanwhile, this is a picture of me in my new glasses. I need to wear them more and more often nowadays.
My employment background has been largely within primary education, where I was a teacher since 1988. I became a full-time freelance writer in 2002, after the birth of my third child. Now I mainly write teacher resources for primary school and illustrated children's non-fiction but, have also published short stories in women's magazines and articles in my local newspaper. I have a regular column in Writer's Forum about authors and their research and have been published in some county magazines. I am a member of the Society of Authors, the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), the Network for Information Book Writers and Editors (NIBWEB) and the National Association of Writers in Education (NAWE). I am also a member of the History Association (HA). For more information about me check out my website: www.anitaloughrey.com
