Writers Cramp 5

Hello folks
Time for another of my infrequent journal entries.
As time goes on they are getting less frequent; however they are much longer!
Bit of a strange last couple of weeks for me: I managed to get a bit of writing done; despite various other things going on. Also managed to get a couple of gigs under the belt of the newly expanded 5 piece line up of Jinn

Last Monday morning I found out that I had won the Short Stories – Spherical Scriptings
writing competition

Zodiac13 ; with “Scorpio”. Obviously I was over the moon about it!
I then had the week from hell at work, including rumours of P45’s (redundancy/unemployment).

All of this duffness was offset by becoming a co-host of Twisted Tales , and getting to judge the competition.
There were some great entries and you can read the top 3:
Lovers by Paul Rees-Jones

Lawn Clean Up by rrohn

Stolen by sastro

Failing that you can read all of them by clicking “here!”:http://www.redbubble.com/search/ttc1

Other good things this week; were being a featured member, and having my writing featured on the home page for Short Stories – Spherical Scriptings and getting two of my story’s (The Egg (my unsuccessful entry for a Flash Fiction comp) and Scorpio) featured on Red Bubble’s Featured Writing page!

Saturday night I headed of to Bradford to play at the 1 in 12 Club with Grinding Halt from Holland; great gig: despite the fact that Grinding Halt missed their ferry and turned up as we were heading back to Newcastle!

Finally this two week period was capped off by finding out that the Jinn LP was given a killer review in Short, Fast + Loud

Before I go, I’d like to say that I keep finding some great writing on Red Bubble, can I humbly suggest that you check out:

jcmontgomery’s journal entry A New Perspective (An Essay)

“barebelly’s ANZAC

They’re both strong personal pieces, and make you stop and think.
