Eeek - deadlines
Various deadlines that still seemed to be a comfortable way off a few weeks ago have started to loom ominously, so I got my head down and worked on a story for one of them. 'Sticky Wicket' is a short, sex'n'cricket story that I'm hoping to sub to a Torquere anthology by early January. It had stalled rather while I was in hospital but a writing friend urged me to lavish some time on it, give it chocolates, take it to the movies and give it another go. I'm not sure if it was the cinema tickets or the hot coffee LOL but something worked and I've made some headway at last. Still not finished, mind you, but I've only really got the sex scene and some final 'wrapping up' to do now.
