So, it’s been a little while since I blogged. And, mostly, it’s because I’ve been busy with things that aren’t all that interesting. Editing mostly. Working on Beautiful Trees (which’ll be out pretty soon). That kind of thing.
This week, for the first time in I don’t know how long, I’ve been able to have a few consecutive days writing. My stuff. And it’s been good. Hard work, but good and it’s feeling like progress has been made. I actually finished a first draft of the thing after the next things so I’m feeling a little bit smug.
And amongst all of that I was at Bollington library on Tuesday to present the awards to the children who’d completed the Summer Reading Challenge (six books over the summer holidays) which was great. It’s a brilliant idea and it works. To have over 140 in a place that’s not all that big is tremendous and encouraging.
And talking of children… I’ve agreed to run an after school children’s writing group, starting in a couple of weeks – if you want any details get in touch by using the form here.
And talking of forms and that page – a reminder that I’m still doing short story editing work (from £20).
And, last, as it’s beck to school time I thought it might be cool to have a little special offer. For the rest of the month, if you sign up for my online short fiction course, you can have it for £89. You’re welcome.
And that, I think, is about that.
