Having successfully placed the short story I wrote in June with its target anthology (more news soon!), I am now working on a new story for yet another themed anthology, once again with an end-of-month deadline. I am finding this approach highly motivating, albeit somewhat nerve-wracking as the deadline hurtles towards me, or me towards it. Anyway, it's keeping me busy until I'm ready to get to grips with the novel again.
I hope everyone reading this is keeping safe and well. And if you haven't already, please get yourself Covid-vaccinated as soon as possible while continuing to take appropriate precautions, whether legally obliged to or not.
