Productive Bank Holiday Weekend

Well, I do like this not being at work lark. It does wonders for the creativity.
I have my round 3 Whittaker poem finished and sent (round closes 17th April).
I have my round 3 Whittaker story half drafted (will probably end up cutting that one a little finer).
Also have my poem for Dorrie’s challenge on Slingink all sent – on the theme of new fairytales.
And typed up 16 pages of my April ScriptFrenzy Script. Some of it is adapting from a part written novel but some willl be writing fresh. Given myself the target of 20 pages by the end of today.
Also plan to tidy today though so we will wait and see about that one.

Happy Writing people.

2 Rounds Down

Well, I got my round 2 fiction entry in on time, just. Word count was around 2,300 with a maximum allowance of 2,500 so I was pretty close to the mark. Much better than the 900 odd words last round. Suddenly thought that I may not have put a line count against my poem.
Still no pages for ScriptFrenzy but I did have a productive Slingink day. Finally got the Member Guide written and posted and I also did the page and post for the e-zine I’m going to be running.
Please check out Slingink for more details if you’d like to submit something. We are accepting short fiction, poetry, flashes and articles. Also potentially longer work for serialisation.
