More news about my writing


Well, in advance of my writing course (off again!!) next week, I've entered a first chapter in an online competition called 'Romance is not Dead'. As promised, here's the link if you'd like to read it! It's a proper competition, with the winner receiving a year's editing help, so anyone who reads it gets a chance to vote too!

It's an interesting opportunity as people can also leave comments, if they wish, or just score it. I've been enjoying reading some of the other people's efforts, and it's fascinating to gauge the current writing tastes amongst the readers of romances in the online community. Are you one of them? If so, go to
Maybe even leave an entry yourself, if you're quick! And I'll keep practising…
Best wishes

    ps yes it is quite hard to see how to vote! For the couple of people who asked via my facebook site, here’s what you do – I think! Once you’ve registered, just log back in, and from either the comments section or the first chapter section, you can click on the title of the story on the left hand side. It’s a sliding scale, so if you click on the centre rose, it’ll register 50% not 60, so imagine the 5 roses are just a 100% line from left to right and click accordingly!
    Hope that helps!
    Have found a couple of other stories from our writing group too – just read Norette’s one about whisky tycoon too – great fun!
    What else are days off for?…. (apart from housework and bathing smelly dogs!) hehe…
