Who is Sue Vincent?

#author #authors #writer #blogger
Author, Writer and Blogger, Sue Vincent

Sue Vincent is one of those special bloggers that inspires people all over the world. Readers have long been galvanised by her posts about mythology, ancient ruins, medieval churches, and her daily midnight haiku.

Even more have participated in and grown as a result of her writephoto challenge prompts. In fact, some of my own short stories were written with the help of some of the prompts Sue published on her blog. She even inspired me to write about man-eating sheep!

Any questions?

Don’t hesitate to leave them in the comments section.

Good luck to everyone that enters the competition.

        1. Yes, I’m so pleased that I was a part of the Bloggers Bash while it was going. I got to meet some wonderful people. Such a shame we had to fold it, but who knows? It might come back one day.

    1. It is, isn’t it, Marje? This is an incredible example of the blogging and writing communities’ power helping one of their own.

      Good luck with your entry for the competition. I haven’t written mine yet, but I have an outline in my head.

  1. Hugh, what a wonderful way to show Sue how much we blog followers care about her. I hesitate to try a 99 word flash fiction or write poem. But, I just bought her book, “Notes From a Small Dog.” It’s so good Ani is her companion. Dogs are a great comfort in times of need. Prays 🙏 for Sue. 💘🎶 Christine

    1. Thank you for buying one of Sue’s books and for joining the event, Christine. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the book.

      As an owner of two dogs, I know how important they are in our lives. They give us love, loyalty and lots of fun.

      1. Hugh, thank you for responding to my comment. The book should arrive in a few weeks from the UK. Ani is an incredible dog. And she has quite a connection to him. He has a sense of what she is going through, and stays by her side to protect & support. I remember Sue’s blog posts about Ani. A few years ago I featured one of her sunsets & short bio. Ani was included. Will you be posting the rodeo update news? And how Sue is doing? 🙏🎶Christine

        1. Oh, I always respond to all comments, Christine, unless they’re too short to respond to.

          Yes, I’ll be linking back to the outcome of the rodeo and announcements of the competition winners. Sue is publishing updates on her blog of her journey with cancer. So it’s probably the best place for you to find out how she is doing. However, I have no doubt that some of my future posts will include this event and how Sue is doing.

          Have a lovely weekend, Christine.
