Coming up for Valentine’s Day and do I have a romantic notion in my head? No.
On the other hand, I did take this photograph of a passion flower in the RBGE last year and I post it here for you to gaze upon and think around.
Much of my recent reading has been for the Book Group, Jackie Kay’s Trumpet which I thought was a beautifully crafted work about love and bereavement. Or has been non-fiction – Peter Ross’s Tomb with a View which I found to be a well-researched and well-written book about not only cemeteries, but some of the folk buried in them. Recommended by Joanne in her Portobella Book Blog. An excellent blog where I have discovered many titles in the past.
Currently, I have Georgette Heyer’s The Quiet Gentleman in hand and am looking forward to moving onto Cecilia Peartree’s The Case of the Late Capybara. Cecilia is a fellow Capital Writer and cozy crime writer extraordinaire.
It is also the case that I went to the online launch last Sunday of Rosemary Gemmell‘s
Dark Delusion and have that treat to look forward to.
So, what have I been writing? A short story of 3,000 words was completed on Sunday afternoon. I don’t do New Year Resolution’s but I saw a fellow writer was going to try a short story a month, so I opened a file called January story. Hmn! Won’t say too much in case I jinx it…
How is your own writing going? Got a Valentine short you’d like to share?
