There is a reason I chose this picture but you'll have to wait to find out what it is.
Two little things for this month (and, really, the chances of me getting to do a "proper" post in April are slim and diminishing by the day):
I have a story in this month's issue of Eclectic Flash (Summer in Winter)
and my flash Rogue Trading has been shortlisted for the FISH one page story prize.
(My thanks to Nuala, aka Women Rule Writer for pointing that out to me! And to everyone who has contacted me variously with a leg up, a shoulder or and arm - your efforts haven't been wasted.)
On the novel front - I'm forty thousand words in and deleting every day! Got a working first draft of the central section and I'm chomping through the first section. For some reason my dialogue wants to be all flippant and I am struggling to keep my characters reigned in. I'm going to crack the whip this weekend!
I still haven't got back into the swing of this thing we call blogging - too little time and so much to do!
PS Well done Beanie for completing the Ocean Swim today! You gave it heaps!
