About Me

Writing in a Peaceful Country Setting

writing words reading

Hi! My name is Annette Hefford. I live in a small town in the heart of the Great Southern in Western Australia. The perfect place for writing a great  novel. And totally suited to enjoying the creation of short stories or flash fiction. For any writer, the country offers the best of both worlds. Immediate internet availability which overflows with helpful information and freedom from the noise of busy roads, but also centrally positioned to visit the west and south coasts.

How easy it is, with the internet to keep in contact with friends and family, to put a blog together, or collecting useful information onto a Pinterest pin board and sharing world wide media news with others on Facebook. I can challenge the internet with questions on any subject. Doing research is a doddle. Listening to music, checking out movies and other fascinating sites can keep me occupied for many hours.   

It is good to know that many IT experts continue to share instruction and offer free advice to the many newbie internet users. A number of Open Source programmes are available and I use many of them. If I had more hours in the day, I’d re-install my enthusiasm for animation and using the Blender programme.

Focus On Writing

However, my focus at this time is on writing and sharing. Without the many kindhearted teachers and authors freely sharing their knowledge, many of us writers would lack encouragement and inspiration to keep up our interest or passion in our chosen genres. The internet is a fabulous place/world where opportunities abound and rewards for effort awaits.

For the story creator, the internet offers opportunities to expand and practice their skills. For new and experienced writers, there are many valuable competitions to enter. This blog is about my writing journey. How I have learned from many other authors and teachers and life itself. I hope to share many good thoughts, ideas and stories as my writing experiences expand. Join me.
