Whoop! Whoop! I’ve been published!


So, despite the title, this isn’t a huge blog post in an, ‘aren’t I amazing, look at me!’ kind of way. This is just a little message to say that I’m thrilled to bits to have had a couple of short stories published. The links are in the Publications section of this site if you’re interested.

I’ve found that I really like working on some short stories while I also work on a novel. Focussing solely on one thing I find so consuming I lose all perspective on what I’m writing, but if I work on a short story too, I seem better able to objectively view both pieces of work. Are you guys the same?

I’d be really interested to know how you guys work. Do you prefer working on one thing at a time, or having a couple of things on the go? Is it all the same type of thing, ie. novels, or like me, do you mix writing a novel with short stories?

Stop by and let me know!

  • I think that’s an excellent point about being more objective when you have two or more pieces to work on. A novel can be an all-consuming piece of work (as it should be) but when working across multiple pieces I think it helps to discern more accurately what each piece is actually about, and where the emotional heart of each piece lies, which helps give a better strategy to the edits. Just my view 🙂

The first thing you need to know about me is, I like gin. Lots and lots of gin.
I live in the South East of England in a lovely little town by the sea and spend my time working, running around after my kids, walking our King Charles Spaniel, Wotsit, and writing!

I love history and have a Master’s degree, but have also been lucky enough to work in various castles and museums over the years. I’ve yet to get one of them into a story though – I really must try harder!
