About Amanda Trought - Creative Writing

I am a Mixed Media Artist. My interests lie in the use of art, texture and colour within the health, community and corporate setting. I have exhibited widely in the UK, both solo and group work. More recently working on the use of collage work, poetry and altered art. I am keen to explore the nature of the individuals experience and the effects of colour and texture and recycled art. I have worked extensively with the elderly with dementia and look at ways in which we can find ways for them to explore their creativity in a relaxed and un-judged environment. I love creative writing and hope to showcase not only some of my written work, but the work of other inspiring writers.

Time Flies…..

I guess I should say, Happy New Year, I don’t know quite where the time has gone, but it has.  So many things have happened over the year I wouldn’t know where to start to catch up, but what I will do is begin by encouraging you to keep going.  Sometimes we find ourselves stuck and it can be easy to let go and decide to give up, but if there is something that you are interested, have a gift or would like to try then go for it.

This WordPress creative writing site, is still going to be just that, a place where I share my writing and creative encouragement, where I will share and encourage others to share their story, and from time to time will have interviews, reviews, and writers sharing their work.  I am quite excited this year as I have a wide range of creative writers that just need an outlet and platform and if I can encourage then I will.

I will be posting at least twice a week if not more, depending on ‘life’  You will be guaranteed to get a weekly quote, scripture as a regular feature.  I would like to profile a writer either every month or every two months, and do a monthly book review.  I also write poetry so will be sharing some of my musings for encouragement.

Today I want to share some of the most popular quotes that I previously shared on the blog.  All the images were taken by me and this is also a love I have.

What is your favorite quote? I would love to see it.  Would you like to be featured as a writer for an interview? drop me a line at amanda(at)realityarts(dot)co(dot)uk and we will take it from there.  For now stay blessed and be a blessing.
