Some little bits of writing news. First, I was delighted to be long listed for the Bath Short Story Award for a tale I’m very fond of.

In the end I didn’t make the shortlist but I feel buoyed by the tentative steps towards validation. Turns out that people might just like some of my stories, which are written at bizarre times, sometimes about bizarre happenings. I will keep going.

I recently submitted an essay to the wonderful Thresholds, and equally wonderful is that fact that they plan to publish that essay in the coming months. I’ll post something here and on Twitter (@WritingRoomLyme) when that happens.
