My name is Thomas Edmund, I’m a 30-something (definitely pushing the late 30s these days) writer. Pretty much as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to publish stories, and while I often find my attention drawn to other areas of life its still a dream of mine to publish a novel.
Along with all the general hubbub of advice to blog and keep an online presence, I find blogging a useful way to unpack ideas in my own head, and while I don’t have any claim to fame or justification for giving advice hopefully somethings I say are helpful to others.
I blog mainly to air my thoughts on writing advice and insights I’ve gained, the occasional movie/television review and every now and again something ‘off-topic’ I don’t really want this place to be a political or controversial blog, but sometimes I just gotta vent!
In terms of ‘real life’ I mostly work (Managing a Behaviour Specialist Team for people with Intellectual Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorder and other vulnerabilities) and tend to the whanau (family). When I get the chance I love walking and hiking, spotting birds, graffiti, ancient and abandoned buildings and of course lonely power polls (its a special interest)
The purpose of this blog is not to preach, instruct, or generally pretend to be a great authority on anything, but to connect, start discussions and meet people with similar interests. Sure I would love to publish a novel one day, but I will settle for just having a great time with my fellow writers.
