Hello! My name is Kate McEwan and I am a procrastinating writer.

I'm over 60,  so you'd think I'd know better by now; but without a firm deadline and regular prodding with a sharp stick, I'm pretty pathetic.  


I've played with words for most of my working life as a copywriter, proofreader, freelance writer, author of an historical guide called Ealing Walkabout (out-of-print years ago), newspaper sub-editor and graphic designer.  But I've always wanted to be a novelist.  


So I went off to Bath Spa University to do an MA Creative Writing,  passed with distinction and won the literary agent's prize for best novel-in-progress. A lovely agent from RCW signed me up on the strength of the first two chapters.  So far, so utterly amazing and fantastic, right? Reader, that was over 10 years ago and I still haven't finished the final rewrite of my novel.  Nearly, almost, but not quite.  The guilt is gargantuan.


I really need your help. I'm hopeless at writing on my own. Please join me to write a lot at least once a month at TheWriteDay  and ~ I'll feed you soup and cake!  I'll also guarantee that YOU will write more words than you have in a long time.  There's something about everyone working together  to achieve their individual goals that creates the magic and gets the words flowing.


Well, that and the fact you're shackled to your chair, of course ...
