Although it may seem like nothing creative is happening, as i have not posted anything for a while, i am gently ticking over…

I have written a poem called “Ten” for a local competition – there is no prize except to be included in a collection of poetry called Ten, for publication. I consider that a prize in itself as it is an ambition of mine to be published somewhere!

As it has to be previously unpublished i will not share it with you yet… but if it is not chosen i will share it with you then, the deadline is the end of the month so i am not sure when that will be. 

I am quite pleased with it (and have worked on it and edited it much more than I ever have before when writing, a process which i have really enjoyed and learnt from) but i am no poetry expert so we will see what they think!

Cross your fingers (or whatever you can) for me!
