3 unrelated things

ONE

My fantastically musical husband, Peter Crawford, who I mention on here quite a lot, has reached the voting round of a fantastic opportunity. MTV Crashes is coming to our local city, and they are opening up the stage for a third night for local bands and artists. There are 20 on the list, but only 10 will get to play. If you would like to vote for Peter (no pressure, of course), please follow this link and scroll to the bottom to select Peter Crawford. Thank you!


TWO

I found a 30 day photo challenge on Pinterest (and I'm now starting to think I've mentioned this already...) which I am posting weekly on my web site. Today is Week 2. In the coming weeks, I'll be posting eyes, sunset and childhood memory among other things.


THREE

My vignette collection, You. I. Us, is going to be published next summer by the wonderful Vine Leaves Press. If you read my A-Z Challenge posts this year, you'll have an idea of what to expect. I got the idea for the challenge after writing this collection. I'm really excited.

    1. Thanks for voting. You'd be perfect for the photo challenge - I, on the other hand, have to remember to take my camera out and about with me, which is proving to be the real challenge :-)

    1. Thanks for voting. I joined Pinterest a long time ago and didn't see the point, but now I'm a little bit addicted. Between that site and a house selling site, I can easily waste whole evenings!

    1. Thanks again for voting, Gary :-) I's good to be writing short stories again, and submitting them. It's where I started, although longer pieces stole my attention for a long time.

    1. I'm enjoying it so far. I was looking for something creative away from my writing - a hobby - because I realised I was writing all the time!
