The Whole Writer

No two ways about it: writing is a sedentary and isolating occupation. However, writers don’t have to be unhealthy - especially if we help each other by sharing our hints, tips, advice and encouragement – even recipes and workouts – to make the writer’s life a healthier and happier one.

NEXT Pop-Up Submission Start In...

What's Happening

...And we're going to play a few games in the chatroom on tomorrow's Pop-Ups, too. Join us https://colony.litopia.com/index.php?forums/pop-up-submissions.91/
On this Sunday's Pop-Ups, we have literary fiction from Angel, a romantic thriller from Victoria and Rebecca, adult mainstream/literary from Robert, women's fiction from Bob, horror from Nesta, young adult from Chris... and cosmic irony (yay!) from our very own Kirsten. So do join me!
Constant helicopters here in central London, it’s like a war zone, wish the relevant parties would simply buzz off :)
Received another email from a producer friend in Hollywood. She's asked to see re-write, determined to help me... (she already like the last version and had suggested similar changes to @AgentPete's) so fingers crossed... she's proposing to talk to contacts at Penguin, & Orion films about it (not the constellation). Now all I need is an agent! Having said that... NOTHING may come of it, but one can but dream.
Another reason for backing off writing for a while has been a series of odd symptoms with my right eye. So yes I'm getting Glaucoma, and yes I have Posterior Vitreous Detachment. Not painful, and nothing to be done about it. But I have been freaking out for a couple of months and I have a terrible incapacitating fear of 'opthalmos' (as they call them here in France). I suppose it could have been a worse diagnosis :(
