Apologies for lack of posts

I was away last week in the Lake District, experiencing all four seasons in four days and very nearly spending the night stuck in a blizzard on the Kirkstone Pass.
I'm deeply immersed in writing my new novel at the moment, so blog posts may be few and far between, for which I apologise. Do keep sending me news snippets relating to the world of womag writing though, and I'll post them up as and when.
Meanwhile, pop over to Karen's blog, where Helen Hunt is talking about how to turn your marvellous short story beginnings into complete stories, ready to submit. Check out Helen's forthcoming day retreat for writers, too.
And Della Galton is talking about flash fiction. She's running a day course on it later this month which will be well worth attending if you enjoy writing the shorter pieces.

Glad you had a good holiday. The Lake District is exactly like our part of Scotland as regards the weather - all seasons in one week! I love it down there but husband is refusing to go (I'm working on him) because it rains so much there and we get enough here.

Good luck with the new novel.

Your week sounds rather too exciting. Good luck with the writing and don't worry about the lack of posts. Your own career has to come first. But we look forward to any posts you do make.

Good luck with the novel. We're just back from a couple of days in the Lakes, and actually ended up on Kirkstone Pass briefly - as a not-so-short cut to avoid the tailback in Ambleside (OH's excuse was that it was a long time since he'd been up there!). It was worth it though, as we had to stop to let a peacock cross the road just before the Queen's Arms down near the bottom.

Hi Kath! I would love to take the boys to the Lake District sometime in the Summer (no blizzards for me, no siree!), can you recommend somewhere fairly unplugged with nice hikes nearby? We've got a car now, so travelling is easier :)

What IS going on with this weather? Hope your writing continues to go well!
