Literally speaking, to be discouraged means to not have courage. It means to lack the presence of mind and spirit to face whatever difficulties, or challenges, lie ahead of us.
To be encouraged, we must act “in” courage. Emotions aside, we must take action despite—and sometimes in the very face of—our fears and reservations. Regardless of the source of our discouragement, we must choose to act with courage—to act with the belief that we will succeed, and none of our efforts are futile.

Some news about the latest projects I'm involved in....
Are You Sitting Comfortably?
Presenting an evening of criminally good short stories, including a selection by local writers, read aloud for your listening pleasure, with live music by Matthew Travis.
CRIME, Winchester Discover Centre, 8th March, 7.30pm
Featuring stick 'em-ups and corporate greed, the perfect crime, the bungled heist, double-crossing and faked death. Be as thick as thieves in the prohibition themed bar, accompanied by smokin' visuals and rambunctious music, with free treats and a literary crime quiz with prizes so great they should be illegal.
Teapot cocktails available from the bar!
Writers include: Anne Summerfield, Kirsty Applebaum, Charlotte Comley, Madeleine Woosnam, Sonja Eagle , Margaret Jennings, Shirley Golden, Bev Hooper, Angela Evans
Podcast writers include: Jo Barker Scott Gill Johnson and Poppy Morgan
A while ago I was included in an anthology. There is going to be a free eBook promotion for the Kindle edition of ‘You, Me & a Bit of We’ this week. It will run for 2 days from Thursday 6th March (to celebrate World Book Day) until Friday 7th March.
The amazon links are as follows:
The Writers at Lovedean will be working in with Angel Radio

Some of our members will be writing and performing short stories, and are excited about the prospect of listening to them go on the air.
All in all exciting things bubbling on the horizon.
