OUT OF SCHOOL AND INTO OXFORD
Monday was my "last day of term", almost, as I was being the visiting author for FOREST OF GALTRES PRIMARY SCHOOL near York, who are having a story-writing competition ove rthe Easter holidays. Had a lovely time, and hope you all have fun imagining your own stories.
I'd spent all day Sunday finally finishing off the revision of my long manuscript, correcting it according to the editors edits, and now it has gone. Always a rather sad & hollow feeling, as if there's something you should be working on but instead there's a space. I have been gathering some another ideas together, so once I've completed a couple of small projects, it will be exciting to start on the next big bit of work! But feel as if I have to wait to hear it's arrived back with the editor before I'm free to do that.
I've also got to gather myself together for a talk I'm giving with the wonderful writer HELENA PIELICHATY at OXFORD LITERARY FESTIVAL this coming Saturday morning. Very, very exciting! We're arguing on behalf of either FANTASY OR REALITY - with me going for fantasy, of course. Am bringing along my unicorn to make sure!
