For fantasists

This competition for fantasy stories up to 8,000 words offers an engraved award, paid for publication, lots of books. Sounds good doesn't it?

I have a fantasy of being able to spend all my time writing stories, carrying tripods, digging the garden and travelling in our van. Oh hold on a minute, no, that's reality ... My fantasy is doing all that AND getting paid for it.

  1. Hi Patsy - that's a good list of dreams and very likely to happen for you ... enjoy Spring approaching and then the summer travels ... it is Spring like - vaguely .. but that wind yesterday was really chilly still ... hope it's warming up a bit for the weekend! Cheers and enjoy - Hilary

    1. It's sunny enough for me to decide spring is here, Hilary. You're right about the wind though.

  3. Living your fantasy - how wonderful. There can't be many people who can say they are doing that. Keep it up Patsy. The money is immaterial.

    1. I need some cash, Maggie so I can keep doing it - but otherwise I agree that money isn't what's really important.

  4. That would be cool, huh? Now off to my thankless editing.

  5. I'm getting the impression you like to escape in your camper van Patsy, and I can't fault you. do you travel far and wide? Or just local jaunts? I like taking off with the caravan, nice to do a bit of writing/editing somewhere different.

    1. I do like being in the van, Maria (that's where I am right now) Often it's local trips, but we've been on some longer ones and are gradually increasing the distances.

    1. I'm only slightly adventurous, Julie but that's enough for me.

  8. Writing all day and getting paid for it? That's my fantasy as well. Including going to Akihabara, visiting Studio Ghibli, St. Tropez and other French cities, Italy, Greece, etc. But it's great that you're already living your fantasy.

    1. I hope you get to see all those places, Lidy - actually I hope I do too.
