Hi, I’m Fran Macdonald, a novelist, short story writer and freelance editor.  I live in Melbourne, Australia.  This blog includes some of my writing.  I also talk about what I think about writing, particularly fiction.  Where are the great stories, and what makes them tick?  That’s my central question.  To try to answer it, I explore books, e-books, zines, blogs, film, TV, writing courses, writing exercises, writing groups and other resources, publishing options, and whatever else I think is interesting.  Please visit my website for information and links to all my writing:

    I clicked-through to your site via the A-list blogging club. I loved your post, “Anyone Can Be a Writer.” I want to highlight this post in my next post about writing. I will definitely link back to it. Do you have any restrictions or requirements regarding this? At this point, the content of my post will probably be how your post inspired me and validated my perceptions about writing. Then I’ll just link back to your post. I hope that makes sense!

      All the best,
