Trials & Tribulations

Last week I posted a piece of flash fiction early and disrupted my usual posting schedule. You may have wondered why that is. Well, I’m going to explain.

It was half term holidays, which (as a lollipop lady) I get off because there are no children to cross over the road to school. Lovely R and I had made plans to go and see a friend’s band, Lipstick Sunbeam, on the Thursday night so I’d expected to be pretty out of action on the Friday and definitely not awake/in the mood to post any flash fiction.

You can also have it join in with your myspace.

Sir WIPalot the PDF

I’m currently writing a new WIP that I hope to release for free in PDF form. I’m releasing it free because, as much as I’d quite like to make money off my writing, there is no way that I’m going to be able to do that properly if I don’t get some of my writing out there so that other people can read it, though. Plus, this will help me improve through criticism and through simply writing more. I may try to write these short PDF stories as often as possible.
