To writers and my readers… I’m looking for your help please.

Any advice for Tric on publishing?

My thoughts on a page.

Okay, deep breath.

It’s not easy to write this without a glass of wine in me but I’m going to (and hope I then press publish). Over a year ago a blog buddy of mine, Duncan,from Madhatters, suggested I put some of my posts together and publish a small ebook for Christmas. He said he would buy it, so that’s one sold anyway. At the time I felt it was way out of my depth and I did nothing.

However a year or more has passed and I’m beginning to wonder if I could. My reasons for doing so are: 1. To learn about the process of self publishing, without putting a precious book I may write some day into the future at risk, and 2. The enjoyment of editing old posts and gathering them together under different titles; possibly parenting, humour, inspiration and stories.

My problem is… where do…

Sunday Stills : Clouds

A perfect sight

Clouds at sunset or sunrise turn an ordinary glow into something far more interesting, don’t you agree?

Weekly Photo Challenge : Dreamy

I enjoy getting out on the hills at the weekends, well maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration, what I enjoy is being at the top of the hill and sitting down for a well earned packed lunch, while admiring the view and chatting to friends and fellow hikers.    And as the only way to get to the top is to climb, then it has to be done!

What could be better than being on the beach, admiring the boats, and dreaming in the sunshine.

Oslo Opera House is a real ‘flight of fancy’ with its marble steps that lead to the roof of the building, and we can admire our reflection in the glass walls, as we stroll along.

The Old Head of Kinsale

We had a pleasant, long, rain-free, walk from Ballinspittle to the Old Head of Kinsale, and back again on Sunday, a round trip of about 14 km, and boy were  my feet feeling the pain at the end!    We walked from Ballinspittle, mainly on road, and it was a welcome relief to come to Garrettstown and White Strand beaches, and walk along the sand and see the windsurfers having a great time with the strong winds.

After leaving the beach we walked as far as the old Signal Tower at the Old Head.   Unfortunately we could not go in to view the lighthouse, as all the land surrounding it is owned by the Old Head Golf Club, and walkers are not encouraged  allowed to go beyond the gates.    There are only a few days a year when access to this area is allowed for us normal folk who are not members of this private elite golf club!

The history of light keeping at the Old Head goes back to the 1600′s and the current lighthouse was built in 1846, it stands 30 metre’s tall and roughly 76 metre’s above the water. The lighthouse became automated on the 1st of April 1987.

It also witnessed the sinking of the Lusitania in 1915, when the ship was torpedoed and sunk by a German U-boat, and of the 1900 people on board, more than 1200 people were drowned, including over 100 Americans.    This action is said to have encouraged America to enter World War 1, as the Lusitania was mainly used for ferrying goods and people between England and America, and was not involved in the war.
