I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that writing a coherent essay by hand, within the space of one hour, is pretty much impossible. Which is worrying, considering the upcoming three hours = three essays exam... Done the first draft of my test exam essay, which took me longer than an hour, is illegible and, well, it is indeed still a first draft *twitch*.
A novel written by a friend of mine is available for free download at the moment. As I am one of the people it's dedicated to, I thought I would give it a plug https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/241909#longd...Warning! It is definitely for adult readers. It's political, contains social comment, and those who do not approve of LGBT relationships may wish to stay clear. It's a very interesting read, though.
Today I turned nine here on W.Com! On to my teenage years. I wonder if I will start rebelling then and what form the rebellion will take. Lots of intentionally bad poetry? A sudden inclination towards Twilight fan-fiction? 42 Shades of Kit?
New story I'm working on, for the Tangent Universe contest - "Ties of the Past" [18+]. It has a content rating of 18+. It's my first short story in a while, and I think I need to work on character interactions - gestures etc. I seem to keep writing that I/he did *this* and then *that*. Gah!
39 years of age. Only one year away from being a "woman of a certain age" . Still, I am not about to turn into a cougar. I'm more of a lynx, really. Small, stocky and fluffy, and used to pretty miserable weather...
So, I am back for a quick visit and learned that you sent an email.
I am looking for a spot to submit my short stories so others can read them
and tell me if they're good or not.
So, I may submit one this weekend, so you watch for it?
AArrrgh. Today (28th) is the day the longlist of the Orwell Prize will be announced. 140 entrants in the journalism section. Twelve slots for the longlist. I'm a complete newbie up against well-known writers. I know I don't stand a chance. So why do I keep hoping for a miracle?
