    Heeeelo there you! I like your September comp entry – he's a bloody elf! Who'd have thought it? Or some other mythical beast. Was very nicely done, with certainly an unexpected ending :)

    Your entry for the short story comp is chilling. I don't think I took a breath the whole time I was reading it. Brilliant.

      Daedalus Glad to hear it! The September competition is open in Forum>competitions if you would like to have a stab (400 words on theme of 'doorways') - you would be very welcome. There is also a Word Cloud challenge for a themed short story coming up

      Seagreen I think my 400 word comp entry wants to be a short story. It's defying every effort to pare it down.

      Daedalus Annoying when that happens...but then it means you have s new short story. Don't fight it, the comp will always be there

      Athelstone What Daedalus said. There's a competition coming soon which will take you through the autumn and winter. Fabulous prizes and fame. (The prizes bit may not be true)

    Sparepen wrote a new blog: "Self-published Procrastination".
    There’s nobody better at procrastinating than a writer.  Especially when said writer knows she should be designing a webpage instead of writing a blog, about how rubbish she is at all things marketing. Self-publishing is such a vicious ...

    Looking forward to seeing your cringe/wow contribution for the Festie book. :-)

    So have you written about that lookalikey we had at York for the Festie book yet? You know, the one who looked like the bloke from Catchphrase...

    Good to meet you Westy. Flying on writer's adrenaline? I think so 8-)

    So good to meet you - and thank you so much for looking after me on Sunday morning when I felt so poorly. x

    Westy, you'll be blown away by the loveliness of all at York. 300 like minded, talented and engaging people makes for a fab weekend. Cloudies are special of course, many are super writers, and one or two may even give in to temptation when the bar is open. Anticipation is half the enjoyment, but you'll come away flying on adrenaline. Enjoy.
