I have to be honest and say that my experiment has stalled somewhat due to circumstances that were mainly beyond my control but it is sitting on the back burner and I will get back to it in due course. I have bought the last few issues of WN though in an attempt to see where I'm going wrong there. I have enjoyed some success with them before but nothing for ages so I'm trying to work out what it is that Jill is looking for these days. They were the first magazine to publish me in this country so I have a soft spot for them. The stories that I had published with them were a while ago though, before I spent time writing just non fiction so I need to get in tune with them again I think. Other than that I have a week off work this week which I am looking forward to. I don't expect to get a lot of writing done because Himself is also off work and while we haven't "booked" anywhere I'm sure well be out a lot. NRIMH is surrently sitting at a little over 26,000 words. It is the first draft and is basically just the skeleton of the story which I am probably about half way through telling. Okay, so time to read this weeks stories in WN and I'll keep you up to date with my retuning efforts. Oh and by the way - Go Wiggo, go Wiggo!!! (reference to Bradley Wiggins for those of you that don't follow the Tour de France)

Good luck with any writing that you can fit in this week.

Ditto Wiggins.

I like your blog a lot :)

Especially the bi-line actually, when you say 'but now I'm me.' :)

I think you come across as very wise and creative!

Please come and look at my blog. I'm still coming out of the 'gonna be a writer' stage! :P
