Happy half-term break to all the teachers out there. As for me, I’ll be reading in the park instead of in class for the next week. I’m seriously behind with my reading, mainly because of having a whole year sucked into a black hole that was my Tribunal case. That leaves a lot of catching up on my to-do  list!


When things get on top of you!

This week, I printed off a copy of my submission tracker, which needs updating. I hate to get behind with which batch of poems or short story has been sent to what magazine and an up to date tracker helps avoid sim subs.

Of course, Bindweed Magazine is powering ahead with a multitude of great poetry and its first fiction publication on 21 May – and many more to come. I’ve now got a great line up of prose and verse on the publishing schedule seeing Bindweed through to September so far, and the submissions keep coming.

Writing, editing, agenting, promoting…whew! But it’s worth it. It’s all for the love of the art. After all, isn’t that why we do it?
