Lately I have been making headway with my NZ historical novel and another short story. The next competition for the Dunedin Writers' Workshop has a New Zealand theme and I'm working on a story set in Dunedin in the 1950s. A new decade for me - in fact it's a different century to what I normally write!
The work on my novel is moving from barely plodding to an easy ramble. Hopefully I'll progress to a trot or even a run in the near future.
My blogging friend Elisabeth Grace Foley has just released a short story - "War Memorial". You can purchase it here. It takes a refreshing angle on war and leaves you wanting more - in a good way :)
This week I have started up a new blog. Don't worry this one will still go on with its normal erratic postings! I just wanted to try something different and focus more on my home town of Dunedin and my take on living there. You can visit it here.
Have a great Queen's Birthday weekend and if you're from somewhere at the top end of the world, I hope the sun shines on you all weekend!
