Like most writers, I find the finishing of one project allows the immediate flowering of another into the vacated brain space, so Rest & Recreation might be shortish. Can’t say I’d sleep very comfortably in that sea-shell, but each to their own.
I’m currently working out what to work on. there are two attractive possibilities.
A draft novel that was critiqued by the Romantic Novelists’ Association through the New Members’ Scheme. Even as few as two published novels down the road, I see glaring errors, although I comfort myself with the Reader’s kind words about the quality of its Voice and the standard of the writing. These ladies are anonymous, but not unsung. Those of us who have achieved publication after benefiting from their work are usually pleased to acknowledge it.
A competition for a short story being run by the Historic Houses’ Association. Details here, folks: http://www.catherinegaskin.com/enter-historic-house-short-story.htm
I love old Houses, castles, keeps and in general, OLD STUFF.
With my butterfly brain, I’ll probably try both.
