Social Media and my Dyslexia.

Time to hit social media head on…

OK, so over the past week both blogger Ren and writer Marie McLean have encouraged me to hit the big bad world of social media head on and to sign up to all the twittery things that get your writing out there. They both make it sound so simple but it isn't! ... I thought... Continue Reading →

Following the Other Things I Do:
