W1S1 May

Welcome to my new followers & Thank You
to all my loyal supporters who have stopped by
when I've been on blog break
to write my novel amongst other things.

So did I achieve my  Write1Sub1, goal (to write one piece of fiction/poetry and submit one piece for publication) this month?
YES, I submitted a Horror poem to a competition (not my usual genre, but I saw a disturbing TV programme called Traffic Cops where a young driver inadvertently killed a man on a dark slip road. Talk about someone's worst nightmare!)

AND I have made slow but vital progress on my WIP and I've decided to stick with the Working Title of Once Forgotten.  Having read so often that to be a good writer you must read, read, read, I am still using some of my writing time to read lots and seems to be bearing fruit, which is great.

So far this year I have had 3 things accepted. My 2012 Cafelit Flash Fiction calendar competition piece won the March slot, My Writer's News /Writing Mag Flash Fiction piece which fingers crossed will be published in the next issue July 2012 and my cat tale for Writer's for Animals, which should be out soon too.

Don't forget that my Giving Voice Blogfest is rapidly approaching. A chance to flex those writing muscles.
