I'm in the process of crafting a more personal blog post about writing fiction based on a true events. I've reworked an old (mostly)true story this week and it's got me thinking about how and when I use things that have happened to me in my writing. That post will be along in a day or 2.
Until then, here are some things I believe you may find interesting:
Flashmobbing! You know that thing that became popular a few years ago, where organised groups would just start dancing routines in railway stations and stuff? Well, think about that but with a literary spin and have a go at writing some flash as part of a mass writing event. Details here.
And some places you could submit some writing to:
OBLONG MAGAZINE is seeking submissions of flash fiction under 1000 words for its 1st paper issue due in August. Editor Jo Beckett-King will be dropping by the blog in June to tell us a little more about OBLONG but as there are only ten spots in each issue it might be a good idea to send your work sooner.
THE 2012 YEOVIL LITERARY PRIZE closes at the end of May. There are 3 categories: poetry, short story and novel with generous prizes of £500/£500/£1000 for first placed in each category.
I'm gonna go and look at my dinner now. It's been in the oven for 8 hours. I trust in you, Fabulous Baker Boys. Let's pull some pork.
What's for dinner round your house?
