About me

My name is Susannah Friis and I live in fabulous Australia. I am currently in the process of writing my first novel and I am fast discovering that the path to finishing a novel manuscript and then actually being published is a tricky, pot-hole riddled affair.

On this blog I will share the ups and downs I experience as a budding writer, tips I come across, links that are useful and maybe, if I am brave enough, snippets of aforementioned novel in progress.

I welcome your comments and look forward to interesting and inspiring conversations with others in this wonderful world of writing. We are a separate breed, I suspect, and, as such, should probably stick together πŸ™‚

I also have a blog about my reflections on life and its happenings. You can check it out here.

PS. Β The beautiful banner was created for me by a friend. You can see her amazing photography hereΒ suehimages.wordpress.com

  1. Good luck with your writing endeavours! I am on the same path. It can be both frustrating and exhilerating at the same time!

    • Hi Becky, thanks for the good luck wishes…right back at you! I completely agree, frustrating and exhilarating are the two most common emotions πŸ™‚

  2. Hi Susannah,

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. Thought I’d return the favor and subscribe to your blog! Your banner is very nice, your friend did a great job. Good luck with your writing, and absolutely, writers must stick together. It’s a wonderful journey, and nicer when it’s shared.

    Best regards,
    Nancy Lauzon

    • Nancy,
      Thank you so much! You blog is definitely one of the things that’s going to help me get the job done…..I love it! I agree, sharing the journey with others has already made such a difference to my writing and my approach. What a wonderful community to be a part of πŸ™‚

  3. Hey Fandina, up and at ’em! I nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award. I always enjoy your posts and even though I know the writing has been tough going for you lately I hope that this will lift your spirits a little!

  4. Thank you for sharing the Liebster Award with me. I believe we did start our blogs around the same time. I, too, feel a kinship with you. You have what it takes, I see your name on the spine of more than one book in the future. God bless us mothers and writers, we take great satisfaction out of everything from spit up to rejection letters.:) Does this make us masochists? Yes, I think so!

    • My pleasure πŸ™‚ It is well deserved. I know what you are talking about….I am almost looking forward to my first rejection letter! And I know you will make it too….joint book launch??? πŸ™‚

  5. Hi Susannah, your handwriting sample is up over at Exiled Stardust. Check it out–I’d love to see how spot on it is!!

    Hope you’re doing well,
