Still Going

Sorry I've neglected this blog for a while. I don't how some of you find the time to post two or three times a week.

My two colleges have been keeping me busy and it's going to get even busier when the A Level exams start next month. I'm even supervising some International Baccalaureate exams on bank holiday Monday.

Despite all this I've still managed to keep the momentum going since the excellent start to the New Year. I've surpassed the fifty total sales mark with a few more to The People's Friend. One story actually started off life at the PF workshop in York last October. Another was a revamp of a piece of flash fiction I did for a Nottingham Writers competition. So you never know where the next bit of inspiration is going to come from.

At Nottingham Writers' Club we're currently adjudicating entries to our national short story competition. We're pretty excited that the final judging will be done by Patsy Collins.
My other club, Trowell Writers, have now got their own Twitter feed @TrowellWriters so please Follow us, give us a Retweet or two and send us a comment.

It's grandchildren time at the weekend, the cricket season has started and it will soon be time for the cycling Grand Tours. So more distractions. Ho hum. Must get on. See you soon.

    1. Sorry. Is that sentence a bit ambiguous? I meant fifty magazine sales in total. About half are to People's Friend. Thanks anyway, Beatrice.

    1. Thanks, Teresa. I read yours too a few weeks ago. The one about the nephews. I like stories that involve kids.

  3. Congratulations on breaking through the 50 PF stories. They clearly like what you write.

    Have a good weekend, Keith. :)

  4. Wow! Selling fifty stories is quite a milestone. Congratulations! (No wonder you don't have time to blog multiple times a week.)

    Enjoy those grandchildren! We're looking forward to spending time with four of ours late this week. :)
