Two Birds, One Stone.

Well, kind of. (See how birds are creeping into my writing, more and more?)

First bird:

Rosy has just tagged me.

“1. Pick up the nearest book.2. Open to page 123.3. Find the fifth sentence.4. Post the next three sentences.5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.”

Okay. My sentences are:

He’ll tell her later. When they’re home. When they’re alone.

*

Second bird:

The above sentences were from Leading the Dance, by Sarah Salway. The reason I had it to hand was because my girlfriend has been reading bits of it. The reason she’s been reading bits of it is because last night, while discussing my short stories and short stories in general (see what she has to put up with) we got talking about one of Sarah’s stories she read ages ago, ‘Jesus and the Aubergines.’ She said it was her favourite short story ever.

Sarah, if you’re reading, that is high praise indeed.

And a huge thanks to Anne, who’s doing me the huge favour of reading my current WIP. Trusted readers, and those who find the time for you, are seriously hard to come by. Thanks Anne – looking forward to hearing what you think.
