Whilst I have been seriously neglecting my own blog . . . I have been writing one for Essex Book Festival instead. It is about my experience of being on their 2013 short story writing comp – ‘Get it Writ’ – shortlist. You can read my blog here – http://www.essexbookfestival.org.uk/extra/get-it-writ-blogs/
You can also read my shortlisted story – ‘2020 Vision’ – here (for free!) too – http://www.essexbookfestival.org.uk/extra/get-it-writ-shortlisted-stories/
Hope you like my story, and don’t forget to keep an eye on the Essex Book Festival pages for next year’s writing comp – I hear it will be on writing for radio next time around, so plenty of scope for some original ideas there . . .
