Wednesday's word of the week is mardy. It means sulky, whining or spoilt. Hardly seems right to mention it in the presence of my lovely blog friends - but maybe it'll come in useful to describe a character.
A manuscript critique over tea and cake sounds just the thing to spoil a writer, she here's your chance to win this great prize. No need to sulk if you're a short story writer rather than a novelist as I have a paying market here that you might like to submit to.
Maybe you'd rather win a new notebook? That'd be just the thing to read my book and short stories on once these become available electronically.
If we believe the papers then tomorrow we'll be having Mardi Gras weather so here's a flower for your hair (do I spoil you or what?)
