First of all – a big thank you to all who sent me birthday wishes. Between here and Twitter and Facebook and email and the telephone, I received a lot – far more than I could have expected. So, yeah – thank you all, very, very much.


And back to writing things. I meant to mention this earlier but never seemed to have the time. Long time friend of the blog, Teresa Stenson is in The Guardian Summer Short Story Special, with her story, ‘Things Which Are Not True’. It’s a top story and Teresa’s a top writer and very nice lady, so I’m thrilled for her. Go read.
