4 th Feb Is A Great Day To Start A New Writing Project !

I have still been delving deep into the mysteries of witch craft this week. While reading about the importance of the power of the moon and stars positions when casting a spell I came across an interesting fact.
Saturday 4th February is a new waxing moon. Yes I had never heard of it before either.
The moon orbits Earth and doesn’t cast any light of its own. The reason we see it is because the light from the sun is reflected off it. It takes 28 days for the moon to fully orbit Earth and during this time it goes through four main phases: the full moon, the waning moon, the new moon and the waxing moon. 
The waxing moon comes between seven and fourteen days after the new moon.
The waxing moon is believed to be a time of great positive energy and brings with it luck, inspiration, courage and success.
So if there is a new writing project or novel you have been thinking about Saturday 4th February is your day to start it.

Need A Good Luck Spell ?

Can`t believe it is Friday already . I have had a good week and feel very focused concerning my writing.
As well as still bashing away at my novel I am writing some short stories too. One of my new years resolutions was to start entering writing competitions. To have a bit of variety in my writing week instead of just focusing on one project.
At the minute I am also researching the history of Witches and spells for a story idea I have been thinking about for a long time. The problem is I love doing research and could spend days reading new things. The week just does not seem long enough for all that I want to do. But I am going to try my best to keep organised this year to try and help fit it all in.
As it is a new year and a new start here is a little good luck spell for you to bring you a good 2012. Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Find a quiet corner at the end of your day and repeat to yourself

Wondering magic bring to me, 
In this life the luck I need,
So all my angles can be seen,
And thus fulfil my every dream,
Combined earth and fire, 
Bring forth my hearts desire,
Guardians of the sea,
Keep all harm from me.

Happy 1st Birthday Blog !

One year ago today I started this blog. 
I was inspired to begin this task due to an article I had read in the UK Writing magazine. My goals last January were to create a research base for others starting out in their writing journey. I wanted to include links to writing and research sites as well as to authors home pages. I also wanted to include interesting writing topics for beginners.
I  may not have succeeded in my 2011 new years resolution of getting a great deal of writing completed but I did succeed in creating a blog I am very proud of .
Through my continuing research for my blog I have learnt a great deal about the art of writing, publication, and self promotion. 
I have also been fortunate to gain some new friends along the way. 
I hope this time next year by blog is still going strong.
