Looking at my blog I see I haven’t posted on here since February! This is not good enough. I don’t think anything major has happened. . .or has it?
I am now published in a collection called Dorset Shorts along with some other County folk. We were all winning entries in the Dorset Writers’ Prize. It’s a great little hardback publication and I’m very pleased with it. I am going to be reading my story Perception and Reality and one other Ten Green Bottles by Karen Wright, during the Shaftesbury Fringe on Friday 5th July. Yeah!
My other sucess was coming third in a Bridport Story Slam with my Flash Fiction Hot Lips You can hear it over on my other blog www.shortstorypods.com
On Thursday of this week I’m going on a short writing retreat to my favourite writing retreat place Retreats for You By the end of it I hope to have finished the major edits on the first draft of my novel enough to send it off for an appraisal with the RNA (Romantic Novelists Association) of which I am a member under their New Writers Scheme. I also need to finish some flash fiction stories for Retreat West (not to be confused with Retreats for You — which I often do!) There is much writing to be done over the next few weeks. The Man has just come back from a three week cycling extravaganza in Victoria, Australia. I meant to get LOADS done while he was away but what with the Bridport Film Festival , From Page to Screen, being on, babysitting and visitors etc., those three weeks went by very quickly and now he’s back. Thank goodness. I work better when he’s around.
A lot of headscratching goin on here. . .Let’s hope nothing is broken and he can put it back together. . .
