Similes and Metaphors

Will Write for Food

Did you all have a good Christmas? I hope so.

I have not posted for quite a while, so thought it about time I improved my (Food) writing skills. You may or may not know it, but I am embarking on my second (Clandestine Cake Club) cook book and feel the need to improve my writing skills further. Over the last few months I have completed intro drafts for 100 recipes and 12 chapters. But I feel as though there is definitely room for improvement.

Internet searches took me along to Dianne Jacob and her book “Will Write for Food” and a trip to Leeds with the Gent, sealed the purchase. I don’t know about you, but I love the tactile approach when buying books at the book shop, something you don’t get when you buy online without seeing the book first, and I do like to support the high street as much as I can, even when it is a nationwide book store.

I never make New Year resolutions, most are broken the following day or fizzle away until resurrected again the following New Years Eve when we say I will definitely do it next year, but never do.

I always avoid tempting fate, it has a habit of giving you what you want, but not in the way you want it. But with a lot of work, lots of reading and determination, I may find that I can fill the next 12 months with interesting encounters around food and other topics.

One thing that has to change is the blog name. No longer is there a Secret Tea Room in the house, and my life is filled with other things besides baking cakes. I love to grow Phalaenopsis for instance and have a window sill full of them.

So with my first post of 2015 complete, what skills are you hoping to improve on this year?
