This will be a short post. I am off to Seahouses, Northumberland at silly o’clock tomorrow morning.
As you may remember*, I was long-listed for the Mslexia Children’s Novel Competition back in October. In theory I should hear tomorrow if I’ve been short-listed – but I will be on a plane. Then I will be singing with the Unthanks – maybe in Bamburgh Castle if I’m lucky.
It has astonished me how nervy I’ve been about this. Jittery even. I don’t mean the singing -I’m hoping that might help. Not the best frame of mind when attempting to edit an 86k fantasy. I am all editorial fingers-and-thumbs.
Does everyone else get all jumpy about such things – or is it just me?
*Brownie point if you did.
