Last week I finally got the go ahead from the organisers of Nineworlds, a new convention running next month in London, for the writing workshop. This is going to run exactly like the workshops that the T-Party have run at Eastercon for the last few years. There are twelve places for writers to get their work critiqued by published and agented writers from the group. This is at no extra cost to members of the convention. As I write this there are 8 places left, submissions close on July 29th so spread the word.
I spent a lot of last week following the 1st Ashes Test Match at Trent Bridge. What a great game, one of the all-time classics. It was so tense that I couldn’t bear to listen to the commentary after lunch. I’m delighted England won, but also delighted that Australia have found some form and proved worthy opponents. It’s no fun beating them when they’re rubbish.
No news about the novel out on circulation, the sequel has grown by about 1,000 words in the last week.
