Hello my dearest reader(s). I know we are well into March now, although the weather is firmly set into winter grounds still, so this is a big-ish update, and a surprise:
Hell yes. Victory Rolls, the reading, is live. Enjoy, comment, tweet me, etc. I am very proud of this story and I hope you’ll like it too!
February has been packed with surprises, the biggest of them all being…
I COMPLETED A FIRST DRAFT FOR LIGHTS (working title, obvs.)
I did it. It’s imperfect and needs all the work and care, but gosh, it’s done. After five years!
How did this happen, I hear you ask? Turns out that if you lock me in a spacious room full of fellow writers, unlimited tea and coffee and biscuits, and if you turn off the wifi for seven hours, I work like a madwoman. All credit goes to these everyday heroes for running monthly retreats and for motivating me with pastries and gold stars (shiny!)
I have put the manuscript away for now and will start the inevitable tearing down/revisions in a month.
The other news is that I’ve got my first ever shortlist for an English language story via Creative Writing Ink. It’s such a confidence boost! I am aiming for three submissions per month to various competitions, there is no better way to hone my skills.
That’s all for now, folks! Let’s catch up in April if you fancy?
