New York, New York

I came second in my group for Round 1 for the NYC Midnight Flash Fiction challenge. True to form, Round 2 was this weekend when I had a million thigns to do and places to be. I came up with a story, was fairly happy with it and sent it off, late Sunday night. Want an adrenaline rush? I recommend this challenge! Hope I do as well in Round 2…

I'm a writer living in the NE of Scotland. I write short stories, flash fiction and to date, three novels as practice ones. I've won a few competitions and been published in a few places, and I've been shortlisted too... My stories have been described as easily readable, but with serious themes. I'm finding my own unique voice as a writer and it becomes clearer every day. I'm a mum of two young children and have a partner who is very supportive. I give English tuition to anyone who needs it and I drive taxis part time. In between being a keen cook and making ignoring housework a new hobby, I write. I manage a few hours a day during a good week and one day I'd LOVE to spend a week or so on a writers' retreat. Having said that, the busier I am, the more I write. I like working under pressure (hence my attendance on sites such as 'Hour of Writes' and 'Write-Invite') and it never ceases to amaze me what pops out of my head when I sit down to a blank screen. I am a member of a writer's group called Mearns Writers, a lovely bunch of (slightly bonkers and thoroughly interesting) people indeed. I'm trying to build an on line life as I believe most writers nowadays need to have a readily availble 'CV' in the form of a blog/twitter account/social media page and though I would rather spend time writing stories I suppose it's time I collated my successes and made a page that, hopefully, a publisher/agent will read one day. Happy reading!

  1. Hi Emma! I saw your Hour of Writes entry on Life Plus 2m so came over to say hello to a fellow HoW person – I see you love NYC Midnight too! Are you doing The Great Flash Fiction War this weekend?


    1. Hi! Sorry am a little lax at being on here. Any precious time I grab tends to be to write, unless soemthing’s happened! Nice of you to drop by though. I’m hoping one day a publisher will drop by too so I probably should do more on here…who are you on HOW? It’s a fab site. Ooooh you’re in New York… somewhere I’ve always wanted to go. What do you like to write most?


      1. ha! I was born in York! Lived all over west yorkshire before several otehr moves took me here, my 19th house, north east scotland 🙂
