Am putting a few workplace hours into exploring and discussing the whole business of story-telling at the moment, as well as developing some short stories of my own at home. Editing too, having left Number Two to rest in a dark cellar for a few months. It's now time to dust it down and edit the wee beastie before it goes to print.
Across at The View From Here, we're beginning to build a new Opportunities page, to list forthcoming Opportunities, Competitions and Awards for writers. As well as getting ready to profile a publisher (and what submissions they're looking for) on a regular basis. So, if you know of any Opportunities, Competitions or Awards that would interest the writing community, email me and we'll do our best to include them:

Didn't use an Oxford comma above (that little comma that sometimes precedes 'and' or 'or' to simplify meaning in a list), although I'll happily use them when occasion demands. To be honest, I didn't know that the little blighter even had a special name until recently, and then - Shazam! - a couple of weeks after discovering what an Oxford comma was and a couple of weeks after being interested by a band I'd not come across before, I come across the same band singing about Oxford commas. Serendipity, eh?
Here's Vampire Weekend.
