It’s been a month for getting mentioned on other people’s websites, and you can also read my guest blog about publishing short stories on BooksEtc.

This story came from running an exercise with a group at Swindon  Festival of Literature in 2012 –  in silence, just writing everything you can hear, but not interpreting it. Go back later and interpret what you have written any way you please. (So the creaking and groaning [of an unoiled hinge – the bit you don’t write down] might ultimately become the creak of a ship and the groan of …)  rather than do nothing while the group wrote, I joined in, and this was the result.
