A couple of wildly different writing opportunities

If you're feeling particularly arty and literary, have a look at the Creative Works competition over at Aesthetica magazine. Deadline 31st August so there's loads of time. Aesthetica is a well-established and respected literary and arts magazine, available from WHSmith or on subscription, or from various art galleries etc.

If you're feeling more like playing with the latest apps on your iphone instead, then here's a site where you can download them for free, in return for writing a brief review. Might be of more interest to your resident teenagers, so feel free to pass this on!

Or if you'd rather stick to writing womag stories - it's time you were getting on with some Christmas themed stories. So what if the sun is shining and you aren't in the mood - that's what a writer's imagination is for!

nothing to do with your post - just to thank you for your helpful comment about Gap Years on Nicola's blog. You 'got' what I was trying to say - probably before I did!

You're right about doing the Christmas stories. I think I'll have to fetch the tinsel down from the loft to get me in the mood!

If you have a Wilkinsons in your town, you don't need to bring the tinsel down from the loft Sally.They willhave Christmas stuff in before the end of the month. They are already clearing the gardening shelves. It is July, isn't it?

Thanks for that reminder! I've had an idea stashed away in my notebook since last Christmas waiting its time!
