Time for a little whoop!

And not just because I've eaten too many Easter eggs! There have been a couple of things happen that I have neglected to mention on the blog and thought I should get round to it! (I'm not procrastinating, honest!)

Earlier this month I found out I was long-listed in the Flash 500 competition with my story Tweet Net. It was the first time I've entered this competition and was really pleased to get long-listed. I will have to enter again in the future but not before getting the second draft of my novel finished.

The other bit of news is that Writers in Southampton have invited me to do a talk on blogging and social media. I'm scheduled in for February next year so that'll give me enough time to really feel like I know what I'm on about!

And only a week and one day to wait until 100 stories for Queensland comes out!

Now I have to get back to my main work in progress. I'm part way through the second draft and am getting stuck in to complete it ASAP. When I'm done I will do a blog post as an update as I've kept it rather under wraps up until now! Now this is just procrastination. I really must go...

But it's a bank holiday...

And it's sunny...

So I could use them as excuses...

Feasible excuses surely...

Okay, you're right... get back to it, woman!

What do you mean, "Why am I still here?"


  1. Keep at it! And I second your 'whoop'!

  2. Thank you, Jane! Is it normal to feel like a long-distance runner when you are writing a novel? (Not that I would know what that feels like but I just have to assume at some point they collapse on the floor and demand tea!)


  3. WHOOP WHOOP!!! Congratulations on all of the above. What fantastic news :-)

  4. Thank you, Lucie and Julie! Lovely whooping efforts ;D
