Round 3

What a week!
Work has been manic this week so I didn’t manage to get my Whittaker fiction entry written. I’d started something but didn’t want to get another hideous score by not having time to edit properly. I’ll get a 0 but that’s ok.
I had already written and submitted the poem so fingers crossed for that one.
Need to consider if I’m going to submit my Dorrie’s poem for publication. Not had any feedback on it though. Ah well, you’ve got to be brave sometime.
Not done anymore on the script but will try and do some more later.
May til August I’m dropping one day at work so hoping that I will achieve lots more with my writing.
