Praise the Valar, it fell neatly into the only spot between my house and the neigbour's that could have avoided damage!  Just a little nick in my guttering which another neigbour thinks he can fix (he's already dealt with the tree.)  Sad though to see it fall.

I'd like to send two short-shorts for consideration. The anthology sounds very interesting.

Ooo! Beautiful avatar Clare! Smile

Yes, I think the anthology will be really special and it's getting more exciting by the hour almost as people are submitting again - yours has been gratefully received and that's my reading material sorted out for tonight!

Can't wait! Thumbs Up

Another short story ready for download on to my blog. It contains a certain Sir Siward from another forum, I hope Siward approves - I've made him a Danish Jarl, after all!LOL 
 
I've been busy all last week but I may be able to download both stories by this weekend. I had planned to do it earlier but real life got in the way!

It's on the blog! I have taken a deep breath and decided I don't care if people like it or not it pleases me! (It's the tablets you know!).
 
Am currently typing up a handwritten story that includes Ser Siward! He is trying to locate his password and he may be back!

Shorts are good fun and very therapeutic - 'cos you don't stress so much to get it all out. I recently did some flash fiction pieces for a spoof competition and really enjoyed the 'discipline' of telling a tale in 500 words - like a super drabble! LOL

Oooh I like Drabbles! Any hoo, the short is up there so if SerSiward wants to have a look he can!
 
I want to write up something a lot longer next. There isn't a time limit to this is there?

Well Daggers the window for story submissions is to the end of September so plenty of time yet Smile

Do you want me to put links to your blog on for you now - I was waiting for you to finish practising before doing that. The links would go on HERE and HERE?

Also do you want to be listed under a pen name or real one? Wink

Yeah I'm still horrifically stuck in both of my stories.  So probably won't deal with them for this.  Had a dream about a different story (This is seriously how most of my stories come into beings - weird scifi and fantasy dreams that really probably would make better movies than books given the visuals in my noggin)

I may try it. 
If it doesn't fall in line I"ll probably stick to working on my graphic novel that I have all plotted out just need to draw and color it all.  Which will take a while cause I hate digital art and I'm doing this all digitally aside from the ink work.

Dreams have such a lot to answer for! LOL  Have been talking about this in another thread today so I'll re-gurgitate the pertinent bits here rather than say it all again -

Originally posted by Jano

At present we're fairly healthy with submissions thus far and with several more promised so we'll be topping the 70,000 word mark with ease (I think anyway). ATM I'm saying we're limiting to 3 pieces of work per person and closing off submissions by 31st September this year

Final editing will be starting with work received at the beginning of May so I can get the bulk of the typesetting in train with an idea of how much we'll have in the bag asap prior to mid-August (after the Discworld Convention) when I'll start reminding people in earnest that we'll be wanting work in and looking around for cover design layouts. 

I'm just mentioning this so people can't say they haven't been nagged but expect an official email round robin on the topic later this month! Wink Those who've already obliged can stand at ease subject to final polishing edits as no major re-writes are anticipated. Tongue

So final deadline at the end of this September - still plenty of time if you get a sudden tsunami of dream inspiration Smile

I'm thinking of adding what I am writing now to the original Siward story. It'll fit very nicely. I'm really getting into this and it's proving a real steam vent for when the Charity Shop is getting to me! Thumbs Up
 
 
Quick question: How can I put smilies onto my blog? - This is going to be a really simple answer isn't it? Dur!
