Sunshine Blogger Award

What a nice surprise for a Sunday morning; the lovely Rory has gifted me the Sunshine Bloggers Award! If you don’t know Rory, do pop over and say hello, he is so much fun and a really great guy – I just know that you’ll get along :O)  So, what’s this all about?

Published!

I am chuffed to little mint balls to be able to announce that I have had a short story published over here at Literally Stories. Honestly, these guys absolutely rock, unlike many sites, they respond quickly and, more importantly, they actually give excellent constructive criticism, especially Hugh, (who’s lovely). 

What-Ho!

Morning Everyone :O) How’s your week going so far? I hope that you are having more good than bad, more ease than struggle and that it’s not raining (unless you happen to love the rain of course). You may or may not have noticed that I have been around less over the last few days, not because I don’t love being here (which I do) but because I have finally gotten around to starting a novel.  I have been playing with the idea for a few months but I am now 10,000+ words in and the ideas just keep on flowing.

“Do you know Paul, I’m really not sure about this, I’ve honestly been doing OK these last few weeks” He’d tried for certainty but even he could hear the hesitation in his voice; he hadn’t been doing OK at all but was this really the answer?

The Next Step…..

Many of you wonderful guys out there have been so encouraging about the drivel I post on here that I decided to submit a few short stories to an online magazine. I don’t know if anything will come of it but it’s the first step so I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your support. I’ve felt stuck for a while now but, with this, I feel like I may, finally, be moving forward.

He almost felt sorry for the woman in the witness box, she looked so pathetic with her scraggy hair, tiny watery eyes and turned down mouth. ‘She really is one of the most unattractive women I’ve ever seen’ he thought to himself.
