1. Amanda Brittany is running a series of interviews on her blog with writers who've made the jump from short stories to novels. The first one, with Cally Taylor, is up there now and well worth a read.
2. And to give yourself a kick start if crossing over to novels is what you want to do, check out the competition which Lynne Hackles writes about here. Send your novel's first page for a chance to win a weekend writing retreat at beautiful Kimmeridge, just down the road from where I live. I'll be entering - I really fancy this prize!
