Happy New Year everyone (is anyone still reading this?).
I’m determined to make a fresh start with the blog this year and keep it up. You might know I had some distractions last year (my now four-month-old daughter for starters) and I can only hank you for sticking with me.
As for writing, I managed to write two things (that I remember) in 2013 – not a great record but it’s something to build on. I wrote a short story called ‘The Great Auk’ which is currently out at a few magazines and has already amassed over five rejections (the fools!). I’ll keep plugging away until I’ve exhausted my 50-strong list of magazines I would like to appear in. At that point, I’ll put it up on this site for you to read.
