Okay I have a big smile on my face because I got an email from MJ of Shot Glass Journal. She is going to include my poem The Healing Land in issue 6. This is wonderful and I am following in the footsteps of the technically brilliant Peter Goulding who has three poems in issue 5 of this journal. His poem The Storm is innovative in its use of language. And Kevin Graham has two poems in issue 5. I am becoming a great fan of his since I read his poem Afloat in The Stony Thursday Book (it actually made me cry).
I've started working on a short story I wrote ten years ago which on editing has left me with only a couple of hundred of words. Still it's a start and I hope I can make it into something good. It was a good idea to begin with. I may just have a shot.
