  1. Got my short antho entry ready for future posting and as usual, spotted something that needs changing too late. *sigh*

      I thought you might have had them temporarily for the Antho stories.

      Nope.  Renee moves the stories to the anthology category, adds the banner, and publishes them when it's time for the antho to go live.  I run the proof team. :)

      Superpower sure was nice to have :P

  2. Mine will appear this evening hopefully. If not, tomorrow.
  3. *Ignores all the riff raff* Mine, obviously.
  4. I've just finished my *short* entry (only 2.6K words). Off now to my editor for a super-quick going over.
  5. This may amuse you

      Thanks, AC. I haven't heard this for a long time. Very enjoyable, if a piece of sonic fluff. I seem to remember it was a CD of Bishop's Shakespeare music when I first came across this.

      lol  "...if a piece of sonic fluff."


  6. The over-stuffed puffin can't do anything except marvel at my fleet-footed escape, shiny in hand. It is now on my head, where it belongs.
  7. If you're missing Steve's writing because of his 'short preamble', you could always try this. Maybe. 🤨
  8. Sudden inspiration of reworking one of my blog prompt responses into a short (yes, that's right: short) antho entry. Will it happen? Hope so.

      Short... so 10k instead of 20k?  :gikkle:

      @Valkyrie Hah! I'm talking just into 4 figures. Genuinely. It's a kind of one scene job, so it'll be difficult to expand it far. Famous last words...  🙄

  9. It's one of those days when it's never going to get properly light. Where my miner's lamp?

    I sympathise (and love your way of expressing it).
  11. Congratulations on an excellent, front page review. 😊 It's already garnered new fans for the stories.

      Thank you for the kind words. Mike Arram's stories are brilliant, engaging and compulsive reading. I felt quite sad that I'd never be able to meet the characters.

    I love the idea of words performing a sarabande. Slow, stately, yet with an utterly distinctive rhythm. Nothing like as a slow as the news over the past week though. It's been impossible to focus on anything creative. And I don't even live in the US. 🤨 Interesting to see you abandoning form and meter. Worth repeating, to my mind. ☺️
  13. And, I think, life has got on top of many people. Covid, politics, jobs, survival - they all tend to drain the writing spirit out of us. I'm just concentrating on getting my WIP written. Maybe next time.
