Rumours and photos and stuff


Recently I've come across rumours and reports that various womags are either ceasing completely or are going to discontinue publishing fiction. As far as I've been able to discover, these are all misunderstandings of one form or another. Sadly it does seem to be true that Secret Attic is no longer in operation.

Not quite true is the rumour that I've given up blogging and writing and am just hanging about in the campervan looking at the scenery and eating cake. Of course not! I've also been walking, photographing, swimming – and even doing a bit of writing. (I know you'll believe me about the photography part!) 

Keeping up with online stuff hasn't always been easy, so apologies for the lack of posts and replies to your comments.

Womag / competition news

Thanks Patsy, beautiful photos, really love the two birds, fab. Glad to hear your not sitting around indulging in guinness & tayto ( a real treat) but getting in some walking, writing, photography too. Safe travels

I am interested in any rumours about cake :) particularly if they are true. Enjoy your travels, Patsy.

Sadly, Stories for Lipreading is closing its website (but the stories will still be accessible on YouTube).
