So, it's March already, and I know I said I'd blog more in February, but seriously - where the hell did that month go? I was still getting used to January and now, whoosh - March. Shit. But! March is Good, because this month I'm the guest editor for the National Short Story Week website - click on through to see what I've written. I was really delighted to be asked to contribute to the site, especially seeing as I'm following on from previous guest editors Adam Marek and Sarah Salway.
Other news, other news... my writing colleague John Haggerty has been shortlisted for this year's Scott Prize (the list was announced today) so I'm very psyched for him. Also shortlisted are my fellow Bristol-prize shortlistee Jon Pinnock, who's got a novel coming out soon too; my twitter and facebook pal, Andrea Ashworth; and my other twitter pal, the lovely Julie Mayhew. The Scott Prize is for an unpublished collection of short fiction, and Tom Vowler's winning book from last year, The Method, is brilliant, so I'm really excited to see who'll win this time. Good luck, dudes.
Jenn Ashworth, dynamo that she is, was in the Guardian the other day as one of their twelve debut novelists to watch out for, AND she's going to be on the Culture Show on Saturday.
This is very linky, isn't it? I'm knee-deep in novel right now. Also my tenants have broken my fridge. And I burned some biscuits. I'm still going to eat them, though. Right now.
