What's Happening

Putting the boot into JKR...I'm saying nothing.
Dozy as a bear coming out of hibernation, I made a typo this morning, momentarily confused that @AgentPete had moved to California to teach kiteboarding!
We've been asked to build a working glassblowing studio for 10 mins of one episode of a French police drama... it would be easier if the shops that sold gas piping would also sell the fittings for said piping. So writing has taken a back burner for the moment (pun intended).
Delighted to announce that Daisy Waugh is our special guest on this coming Sunday's Pop-Up Submissions!
As I continue my confused self-promotion campaign with blogging and social media, I couldn't agree more with J.G. Ballard's observation: "Any fool can write a novel but it takes a real genius to sell it."
Edit, sneeze, cough, edit, spatter, wipes keyboard, edit, edit, splatter, edit, hatchoo, wipes computer screen, edit, cough, edit.
On this Sunday's Pop-Ups...
"Sentiments & Melodrama" - psychological drama from Jem Redah;
"The Broken Promise" - historical/literary fiction from Imran Omer;
"The Stone in My Pocket" - young adult/coming-of-age from Matthew Keeley;
"The Atrocious City" - satire from Henry Oliver;
"The Militia Law" - historical fiction from Ian Sumter.
Join us in the chat room, live at 5pm UK!
