Phew! What a month! I’ve just gotten back from Ireland and it was everything I’d dreamed it would be. Dark and rainy days curled up on the couch with a journal and a hot cuppa; nights (or, more acurately NIGHT, thanks to the baby) at the pub with other writers discussing the merits of novels, short stories, and poetry; long walks with the hubby through glens and dales (literally, glens!), and a few breathless moments of driving on the opposite side of the road. It was a full and memorable week that I feel blessed to have experienced. I’m planning for next year’s festival already!
I had a few great ideas that I really feel will go somewhere and I was able to get the bare bones down on paper, thanks to my new journal. I am hoping to flesh them out a little more over the next few weeks. A couple will touch on topics I’ve already mentioned (ie. technology and its affects on us) but I have some non-traditional concepts brewing as well. More on those to come as they progress. In the meantime, you can see what I’ve been up to with my collaborative project on MyStyelle or, if you are in the mood for some dark but brilliant stories, grab a copy of the Fish Anthology 2014.
