What I am currently working on....

This is kind of the setting for my short story for LBD/Company Magazine. I love the setting and the story idea (especially the title I have come up with) I made a start on the story a while back when I quizzed my aunty about life working at a telephone exchange. After my last attempt at a short story competition entry I am not leaving this to the last minute. I came up with three characters last night. The heroine, the love interest and the love interests sister.

Also today I have been on the search yet again for creative writing classes in my area. I cannot find any courses suited to me in my area. I found a good evening class at Mary Ward but its just too far for me to get to in time as are all the other not so good ones. I found one across the road from where I work which would be perfect if it weren't for the fact that it was an Advanced Course. I would opt for a Distance learning course but I fear I wouldn't get as much out of it as I would attending a real life class. Any recommendations for any Distance Learning Classes would be greatly appreciated.


  1. I'm working on a story for the LBD competition too...great fun!

    Have you thought about joining a writing group rather than a class? At least you'd be meeting other writers and you all get to critique each others work, which would be useful.

  2. Thanks Karen, I hadnt thought about that. Its something I will look into though. Can you recommend a good one?

  3. I'm presently doing a course with The Writers Bureau and it's certainly helping me.

    I'm working on a story for the LBD competition too, not got very far yet though.

  4. Thanks Debs - I shall check it out. I'm loving it. I'm finding this easy to work on as I have no idea what is going to develop with my characters but I do my 100 words a day on it and its coming along nicely every day.

  5. I did the Writers Bureau one too, a few years ago, which really kick-started things for me. Definitely worth a go :o)

  6. Thanks Karen - After reading your
    1st chapter it must have been a good course so I'm even more interested.
