Well into the work

I'm in the midst of putting my application together for a Northern Writers' Award.

The stuff I did at the start of the month (not much internetting, writing on paper rather than on screen all the time) set me up well - I've finished the 'creative' aspect of the proposal, and am now just in the business side of it - writing a synopsis, a personal statement etc. It's challenging - especially writing a synopsis for a work-in-progress. But I'm getting there.

Hopefully just a few more days of writing, then a few days away from it, some small edits and send it away. The closing date is 31st Jan but I'd like to have it in a few days before as I've got a busy couple of days at the end of the month.

Something fun my friend Karen shared - The 10 Worst Book Covers In The History Of Literature. I'm a fan of the Tarzan one.

Never rush an application. Only ends in tears. Whatever the other things are, I find it best to make THEM wait, not the application. Unless it is a matter of life and death to complete them. Good luck! :0)

Hi Carole Anne - great advice, thank you. It's just usual stuff like work I have to do - but also a party to go to... I'll only go if the app is done, I promise!

Thanks, Rebecca - it really would be...

Hi Kam - you're welcome - ta for following here, and for your well wishes.

Thanks, Rachel. Exciting if I get it... but very useful even if I don't - has made me think about things I wouldn't have. Which is good!
