FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
A Good Day for a Fairy Godmother lists what someone like my rebellious Eileen would consider was a “good day in the office”. You just don’t want to be the other side of the metaphorical desk when she has a really good day… Oh, and if you happen to be a monster or other foul fiend, you can rule out having a long life expectancy. Her good day is your nightmare. She prides herself on it after all.
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
High Days lists some of the special steps I’ve experienced as a writer. Where you know you are going to face rejection after rejection (it is in the nature of writing), being able to have positives to refer to can help enormously. And the nice thing is even if you are just starting out, as long as you keep going, get feedback and not be afraid to change/get rid of what’s not working in your fiction, then those positives will happen to you too.
CHANDLER’S FORD TODAY
The Writer’s Journey shares what has happened writing wise since I went to the Swanwick Summer School in August. This period has easily been the busiest and most productive writing time I’ve known – so far anyway! I also share a new flash fiction story, The Magician, and I suspect all pet owners will be able to identify with it. Hope you like it.
I share news of my CFT post and look forward to the Bridge House/Cafelit joint book launch/celebration event (Baubles and The Best of Cafelit 5) in London on 3rd December. Last year’s event was huge fun. I love this sort of event as I get to meet new people and it is lovely talking with folk who love writing at least as much as I do.
