All this lawn bowls activity reminded me of an article I wrote for AuthorHouse a little while back. I thought I would share it today.
The AuthorHouse Lawn Bowls Literary Championships
I don’t know if you are familiar with the sport of lawn bowls? If you have heard of it, you probably associate it with elderly people who gather on Sundays in their whites and have a sedate afternoon’s roll-up around afternoon tea.
I have played a fair bit of bowls in my time. I was a reluctant beginner, however. I started bowling at the age of 21 and I was one of those who considered it a sport for old people. I had to play though because it was a part of my job. I had no choice in the matter.
And for that I am grateful.
So what does rolling a bowl down a grass lawn have to do with writing, I hear you say? Well, since I started working at AuthorHouse, I have been thinking about how a game of bowls is similar to the craft of writing. So here are a few of those similarities for you.
