I’ve neglected writing news lately.
Bit odd, for a blog on a writer’s website.
But fingers in pies etc.
So the news…
Words Magazine have very kindly published one of my shorts.
Frankly I feelÂ embarrassed and a little self-conscious.
It sits in the company of work of some excellent authors.
But it’s nice to see it there.
Words Magazine is available at www.wordsmag.com and you need to pay money to read it.
Or you can read my short stories on myÂ main website and try to guess which one they’ve chosen.
Words MagazineÂ have made a couple of nice edits, one in particular is visually stunning.
I’ve decided not to steal their edits though.
And I have an idea.
It’s a germ of a longish short story based on a kind of cultural parallax as seen through undergroundÂ events in 21st Century society.
Sounds a bit deep when I seeÂ it like that.
But in my head it’s punchy and not a little bit scary.
It’s based on events that recently occurred to me in London.
And I think in format it’s a radio play.
I’m going to work out a synopsis and see if I can get BBC Radio Drama interested.
