Writeolive.com has now found a new home, right here! It’s as easy to combine this site and my old blog in one and you can still read all my blog posts (hopefully!) on this site.
It’s been a hectic few months, as I’m working on a new “Eco Zico” app which should be ready by October and available on the iPhone and iPad. Apart from that, I was in the middle of setting up a new business, editing.ie a professional writing and editing service.
On the books front, I’ve been speeding through my reading list, to make up for lost time over the last year. If you haven’t read “Brooklyn” by Colm Tóibín, check it out, it’s a great read and I’ve almost finished the enjoyable dark humour of Zoe Heller’s “The Believers”
I’ve also been trying to stick to the Literary Resolutions for 2011 that I and some other blogging and facebook friends are doing together. This month’s resolution is, ”spend the month rereading your old work. Read fragments, half-finished essays, and rejected work. Invite one piece back into your life for revisions, and a second chance.” I’ve been reading back on some old work, but I think I’ll start on some fresh material instead and what better time to start than in May. Indeed, the great thing about being busy is that the winter months just fly by and it’s the summer already yay!
