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

Another rejection, then. But the KINDEST one yet. And personalised, too, which is unusual. This time the agent read my submission straight away (it was a faster respnse time than when I previously queried the same agency), which suggests my pitch, at least, hit the spot.
(Skylark was the agency concerned, if anyone's interested. Children's authors specialists.)
The Debriefer goes live later today on our Facebook page, 3pm UK time.
It's been a lousy week, a short story rejected. I still miss my dog who died last month, and then.... Last night I spotted one of my books featured among mysteries at a downtown library, and this morning the sun was out - notable for San Francisco in August. I'm smiling again.
Was merrily walking around Bruges hunting for beer and chocolate, and what do I see? A sign on a door, saying: Home is where my books are.
Bristol (UK) still bewitches me....
But there seem to be so many lost souls here now.
Meanwhile, just had a submission burst. Here goes nothing... (probably)...
Thank you, wonderful Litopian readers tonight! Great work :)
Oh, and because it's the last show before the summer break - lots of word games! Join me live if you can. https://www.facebook.com/RealLitopia
