As befits a man of my advancing years, this will be a quickie.
My week is off to a flier, thanks mostly to the ever wondrous and wonderful people over at Literally Stories who have seen fit to publish another one of my new pieces.
For those of you who’ve read a lot of my stories and blog posts I’m sure you’ll agree that Car Crash Television is a real departure for me. I’ve tried really hard to step away from my usual comfort zone of using flowery prose to expand on weighty and topical themes and challenged myself to write a mostly dialogue-based piece focusing on a bloke moaning about what’s on the TV.
Hope you enjoy it (and thanks for those who have already so kindly commented on LS – I will respond forthwith and possibly with forth).
In other news my novel remains unfinished. Unstarted some might say but shame on them and a plague on all their locusts.
*ready as in, just needs to be printed out, read aloud, corrected, hated, filed, burned, reprinted, marked in red pen, read aloud again, rewritten, almost submitted, rewritten, red aloud whilst sober, edited and submitted.
Right, that’s your lot. Until next time…stay wordy and stuff.
