Apologies for not keeping up with the blog. There are a number of reasons, but I'm sure you're not interested in excuses..
The blog isn't the only thing that has suffered from this temporary interruption. After six months I failed to meet my goal of subbing four short stories a month. :( But in my defence, I have been working on my own publication of short stories, Reflections and although I haven't got much further with the cover, I have almost edited sixteen short stories. So that's almost four months worth, well, that's how I square things anyway. My goal is to have it ready for publication at the beginning of September, so next week I need to get the cover someway decent and that's priority numero uno. Snapping at the heels are my Penny and George series and the first editing of 'The Morning Gift' which is very raw to say the least. But having checked the writing goals I set myself at Writers Abroad at the beginning of January, I'm quite chuffed to find that I have actually made quite a lot of progress!
So how is the writing month of the silly summer season, going for you? Of course, depending on where you are - it may not be summer, my mate in Dhaka has monsoons! But where ever you are, I hope that you are writing...
