Ooh now, that’s cool. I blogged a little while ago about the shape of my stories and now Teresa and Miriam have posted images of the shapes of theirs. You can see Teresa’s here and Miriam’s here. Anyone else like to share…?
I notice it’s been a little while since I last posted here. Sorry. I’ve been a bit under the weather and I’ve been busy, mostly with writing. Some of what I’ve written I’m pleased with, other stories, erm, not so much. It’s reminded me, and I think this is a really, really important lesson for anyone beginning to write, that a good idea does not guarantee a good story. But not being able to turn a good idea into a good story does not make you a bad writer.
I met Paul and Claire last night (they are a seriously good team) to have a look at and edit (or watch them edit) the video Claire shot of the launch night of the photo book back in May. Thank you both, very much.
My very short story, When You’re Frightened, Honey, Think of Strawberries has just gone live over at Ink, Sweat and Tears – click here to read it.
Over this past week or so I’ve had loads of emails from people, some I know, some I’ve never spoken to before, telling me that they like my work. Usually I get that kind of mail now and again and it’s lovely. It’s really great. It’s fab to hear that my work’s enjoyed by people – it’s something I’ll never get tired of hearing. So to all those who’ve taken the time to read what I’ve written and then taken the time to tell me: Thank You.
And this is cool too, isn’t it? My friend’s (and TOP writer) book cover. Go Jenn.
