Sometimes Mslexia lies neglected on the coffee table for a few days, other times I leap on it and devour it in one. This month I’ve left the creative writing for a quiet moment, but spent an industrious evening checking out all the notices and links with a view to getting more work out there – and it worked! Soon after I contacted The Pygmy Giant with my one of my few efforts at flash fiction, they replied with a promise to publish – and soon. No payment (as if!) but it’s a neat site that promises to address the scarcity of UK short fiction on the web. A noble intent. I also applaud their taste!
I’m off on holiday for a week or so, so keep an eye on their site for a piece called Brain Drain. It was inspired by a train journey I took while under the influence of far too much caffeine.
