Using Stories To Inspire and Entertain


Hi, I’m Sam, and the cute one’s Kimber!

I use this space to share Writing Inspiration; stories about writing, life, Kimber; cartoons about a very silly sheep; and the odd recipe. As well as writing for this blog, I’m working on my first novel, which I’m currently editing and getting into a good enough shape to be seen by an editor. It’s fun and challenging, all at the same time, and when I lose myself in it, I love that I get to have this life. My wish is that you find something here that inspires and/or entertains you. Either, or both. And that you’ll share your stories with me too, because isn’t that what life is all about: sharing stories? 


Have a great day!
