Competition hiccups

Why is there always some hiccup when I want to send off a competition entry? If it’s by post, there’s either a strike or my printer decides to die and then I don’t have the right size envelope or enough stamps. Email should be easier, but just today the application form I’ve completed is too big for hotmail and I’ve had to email the organisers for help. All I need now is for my internet connection to go down. I typed this with crossed fingers!

Writing friends are critiquing my novel. It’s a tough time, but these are people I can trust to be honest.

Being kind

I felt pretty low yesterday, but have perked up a bit. I'm still not in the right place to face any editing, so I'm tidying up 'paperwork' and researching agents and being a bit kind to myself.

A weird (but good) place

Today is one of my feel 'a bit funny' days. They arrive unannounced and for reasons I can't explain. I'm not ill or sickening for anything, I just feel strange. Writing helps, but doing something about the feeling is another matter. I'll keep calm and carry on, what a great slogan that is!
