Thank you for visiting Go Write Ahead, a simple, easy access site created for people wishing to embark on their writing journey.

Having had hundreds of articles published over 20 years in magazines and newspapers, I have created this site to share a little of my own journey in writing; the challenges, and how to overcome them; the let-downs, and how to manage them; the disappointments, and how to move on from them and the successes, and how to stay grounded. You can find out more about me here.

If you are looking for tips on ‘how to write your first novel’, this site is not for you. This site focuses on feature writing and developing your portfolio from scratch, building your CV, and cherishing your byline successes.

Please explore the site at your leisure, and if I can help your writing journey in any way, get in touch here.
