I have recently taken a break from blogging in order to concentrate on recovering my health (I have chronic fatigue syndrome) and to focus on writing my doctoral thesis. 

I’ve just received a nice piece of news that has buoyed me in my creative writing journey.  A short creative non-fiction piece that I submitted a couple of months back has been accepted for publication by an Australian arts magazine. Will post the link once it’s up. Am absolutely rapt. 

Submitting a couple of short stories to different literary mags this weekend … fingers crossed for a happy publication ending!
