    Kate Inspired by L's success with her Across the Margins submission, I thought I'd have a go myself. Shocked that they accepted my piece of flash fiction. First time I've been published! :-D It's here if you'd like a look. http://acrossthemargin.com/an-ending/

    Another social go glitch. It seems to give me a birthday every four months. I know they say time passes quicker as you get older, but that is ridiculous!

    What a coincidence. I'm reading On Writing at the moment and just read the bit about story. SK said something like Story is honourable and trustworthy, while plot should be kept under house arrest. Plotting leads to wooden writing. Completely ...

    Have just finished An Argument of Blood and thought it was fantastic. You've created two characters that feel very real. I'd never have expected to be cheering on William the Conqueror, although the pollarding scene has left me with the shivers. Out ...

    Thanks Kate, very nice of you to say so. I've given up on writing a novel but I do enjoy a short story. Keeping my hand in as it were.

    Wow... as a parent myself (and owner of a satnav) your December comp entry was infuriating to read! A situation many of us have been in I’m sure. Very well written, and a happy new year to you :)

    Like the comp entry, Kate. Very hard hitting. Could be the intro speech for the next Trainspotting movie! Well done, good luck :)

    Your competition entry reads like it was written effortlessly. Jealous.
