For the first couple of weeks this month, I worked hard on my NaNo novel. Then I got distracted by a few short story ideas. Writing them slowed down the novel’s progress considerably, but I’m back to it now.
I have a story in the My Weekly Annual 2018 (thanks to Jackie Sayle for the picture – I haven’t been able to track down a copy yet) and another in Take a Break’s Fiction Feast. I’ve also had news of further acceptances in England, Australia and Sweden. News like that is very motivating.

Wow, this is fantastic, Patsy! Many congratulations. I love the illustration. And I know what you mean about being distracted by short story ideas when writing long work. Isn’t it fun though?!

That is great stuff, Patsy. I know what you mean with distraction. I always admire writers of a short story. I can’t do them, I have too much to tell and I end up with an almost finished novel.
Well done you! Love the illustration too. Very colourful. Xxxx
It is. Fay – a bit like skipping a school lesson to go on a field trip.
