It's time I stopped making excuses and got back into regular blogging despite the fact that this is my busiest time of the year.
There are A Levels and International Baccalaureate going on at the college where I'm an exam invigilator. During these two months I'm still determined to keep up my short story output for the womags. Nevertheless I'm sitting here typing this post while switching between commentary of Notts v Leics in the One Day Cricket competition and England v Ireland in International One Day Cricket. I'm also trying to keep up to date with progress of the Giro (Italy's equivalent of the Tour de France).
Another ongoing project is the sequel to my children's novel Youthopia which I'm hoping to complete before the end of the year.
By the way I have a story coming in this week's People's Friend. (Dated May 13th). It's a story with a horse racing theme. I actually received a slap on the wrist from editor Shirley Blair for not alerting her to the fact that this is a date specific story. It didn't occur to me that they would have preferred to publish it during Grand National week. Oh well. Lesson learnt.
