Glenn Patterson Shared A Few Tips On Saturday

I wasn’t sure that I would get to Glenn Patterson’s workshop, Keeping the Balloon in the Air, on Saturday. Due to illness and other difficulties, there was a shortage of volunteers to man a book table at Enniskillen Castle Museum so I found myself setting up the table around noon and hoping someone would come to take over from me – thankfully, help did arrive and I made it to the workshop with a few minutes to spare.

Patterson workshopGlenn talked about how to sustain a piece of writing from the initial idea to completion. Many things he said resonated with me – especially about how many ways there are to procrastinate while writing. I laughed as I recognised myself in what he said. I was interested to hear how other writers, including Glenn, deal with getting a book completed and I also took away some tips to help me keep going on my own projects.

I’m glad I was able to attend the workshop – it was well worth the effort it took me to get there. If you would like to read more about Glenn’s workshop, check out the post on Fermanagh Writers’ blog.
