Playing Catch-up

What a whirl the last few months have been. The day job has required a somewhat sharper focus and that has meant emptying my head of the many worlds that filled it previously. We are not out of the woods just yet, but I am feeling encouraged to slowly ease myself back into the writing harness.

This has been prompted by a few things.

One is the wonderful news that the short story that I co-authored with Simon Kewin has been accepted by
for publication in October 2011.

This piece is around 8400 words and I am delighted that it has found such a great home.

I have also had a couple of micro-fictions published by Trapeze Magazine recently (see my Published Works page for links) and it is always encouraging to see your work recognised. It would be even more encouraging if you, my friends, felt like visiting Trapeze's website and perhaps leave a comment! :)

I was also delighted to receive an award from Catherine Ensley at Words World and Wings. Thank you so much Catherine, it was very sweet of you.

One last thing - if you read yesterdays post and didn't twig that it was a mickey-take, I'm obviously hopeless! Take a look at my comment yesterday!
