Douglas, king of the crossword
and now the haiku.
In other news I discovered in this morning's post that my two offerings of short stories have been deemed unsuitable for inclusion in the Anthology of Chester which is disappointing, and my specimen has not been accepted for inclusion in the Field Guide to Surreal Botany (though not really surprised about this one since it was much too long).
So it has not been a particularly splendid twelve hours.
However I am really pleased that I submitted something for the botanical guide because it made me think of an idea which has been haunting me ever since - a fantasy for children. It is more than ten years since I wrote something like this, so perhaps it is time I tried my hand again. All I've been writing recently is this blog - no fiction at all and I'm beginning to feel edgy - like some who has missed her fix.
