Hot and happy

How are you? We're both fine here. I'm weirdly short of time though, considering we can't go anywhere in the van. The garden is looking great though, my chilli peppers are coming on a treat and the latest novel is now at 82,000 words.

Hmmm, maybe that lack of time isn't so weird after all? I know losing track of days isn't, and you'll forgive me for once again not getting round to posting until Thursday.

Here's a little competition passed on to me by Alyson Hilbourne. They're looking for very short stories, flash fiction and poetry. There's also a competition for under 16s. A £25 prize is offered in each category and all winners and runners up will be included in an anthology. 

This competition is for a thrilling, suspenseful or frightening novel of a minimum of 7,500 words. You may send works in progress which is just as well because there's only a couple of days left to enter. There's a prize of $500 plus some publicity stuff.

Do you think that's enough chillies?

Great word count! You've been productive.

Funnily enough, a friend and I were just talking (on the phone) about not having enough time even now sometimes! Well done on all those words.

We're very happy being around the house and garden but would like a trip to the coast when we're allowed. I'm sure you're wanting to get away in the van.
