I’m back!

A shortlist, publication in an anthology and a wee mention on a website and I feel like I’ve got my scribbling mojo back. Good feeling.

And I’m on Amazon! New anthology: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1521735271/

Busy busy, not enough hours in the day but happy that even with a tiny amount of time I’m having some success. I really like the story that’s just been published too.

The Summer Holidays are here, my wedding is on the horizon, my holiday let business has taken off big time and I really am rushed off my feet. But I’m happy and content in life, and have all kinds of interesting and fun things to look forward to. Probably won’t get much new writing done in the coming weeks but I’ve plenty to polish and work with, and new ideas get jotted down for the future. My dream of having an anthology of my own work published is getting closer. I still hope it’s this year.

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!
