It seems to have been a busy few weeks. I have been working on a new story, 6000 words. It took over my life for a week or two. Meanwhile I was pleased to hear, from Dr Nora Gold editor of the Online Journal Jewish Fiction.net, which comes from Ontario, Canada, that they would like to publish my last but one story – `Words.`
It`s winter again, and I`ve had another cold. Fortunately it has gone now, but as it took me over a year to completely get over the last cold (a post-viral episode, like the two long ones I had all those years ago,) I am not completely confident that this one will let me get back to normal activity levels. Need to be careful. Need psychological tools too – I`m not young (an understatement!) and if I feel weak and washed out it`s hard not to think: what must really be the matter, then?
The creative writing group at Trinity Church has attracted more than half a dozen people, but the problem was they came at different times! The final group will take place on Thursday November 21st, and then I`ll hope to start again in January. Get in touch if you are interested.
