Last week I had just one communication from an editor. As it was a sale (to The People's Friend) it went a long way towards convincing me it's worth sending more stories out. I've not done a lot of that lately, and even less writing of them, but I've been working on other things. I've started up a newsletter. The latest novel is, I hope, in the final stages of editing, with all the rewrites behind me. And I've released a new short story collection.
We choose our clothes to help us stand out, make a statement, or to hide inside. They may show who we really are or be our disguise. Perhaps they'll help us play a part, get the job done, or be a means for revenge.
Clothes can warm, comfort and reassure us. We might buy or borrow them, damage or repair, give them away or have them taken. The items in our wardrobe might bring back memories, express hope for the future, or offer a surprise.
From glasses to shoes, fancy dress to fancy dresses, designer wear to charity donations, the clothes we wear all have a story to tell. This book contains 24 of them.
You can get it here.
This week I'll be polishing the novel, and making a few womag short story submissions. If I'm lucky, I'll be doing some of that from the campervan. What are you planning to do?
