On a more positive note I finished a short story I had begun last year, just in time for our latest competition at the local writers' workshop. Results will be announced on April 11th at our AGM. Which means it is a year since I put up my hand to be president of our group. Time certainly flies.
In my last post I talked about beginnings and that is what I am in the thick of at the moment. I'm almost at the end of the first chapter on my total re-write of Blackbird. It's coming out as a quite different story and that really is good news. The essence is the same, but it's a more 'together' story. Progress is slow, but sometimes that is just the way it is.
In other news, I've joined Goodreads. I'm finding it a great way to find new books, read reviews and keep a track of my TBR pile. If you haven't visited yet, it's worth a perusal.
As I'm learning Italian, there's a pile of historical novels set in Italy that I want to read. I'm quite familiar with the art history, but not the political history. All I really know is this family called Medici ....
And now that leads on nicely to a good excuse for another wonderful Italian picture.
