Short story writing.

What fun this is! So many opportunities to enter competitions and write stories.

I don’t like the competitions where they leave the writer to choose the subject but I have found two this week that give you one line, the first an ending and the second a beginning.

I’d like to put one on my new website http://www.juliecround.co.uk but can’t until the competitions are over. Until then I’ll have to go back to being a housewife. We bought all the ingredients for a Christmas pudding today so that’s next weekend’s task! Anyone want my recipe?

Keep trying

I have just sent off an article to Mature Times as the magazine I first offered it to have not replied.If I get it published I’ll be content but wouldn’t it be nice if they asked for more?

I’ll be up in the loft this weekend for more copies of “A Lesson for the Teacher” to take on holiday.As it contains scenes in Chatham,Greenford,Ealing, Shoreham,Brighton, Burnham ¬†and Torquay I can’t expect Worthing people to buy it to find places they recognise as I could with the other five books. It has to rely on folk who remember the 1960’s. Luckily, we may be with a few of those!

The last copy of “Honey and Humbug” will be sold this weekend. (I have archived one)We enjoyed producing our own poetry anthology but we didn’t ISBN it and the 100 we had printed were often given away as presents so it was expensive.

I am trying to think of another story for a competition. Writing Magazine have a whole year of competitions in their last issue. Talks are great but I need to be creating!
