Win a copy of Handy Hints for Writers!

Just popping in to post news of a competition running over at I Should Be Writing.

If you get the writing magazines, you’ll already be familiar with Lynne Hackles; fellow fiction writer, brilliant writing tutor and fantastic writer of books about writing!

Lynne is giving away a copy of her new book, Handy Hints for Writers and it’s really easy to enter. Just leave a comment on Lynne’s blog even if you just say hello and her lovely LSO will draw a name out of a hat in a week’s time.



I’m going to enter because Lynne’s books always touch the writer in me.

Also I wanted to mention Helen's post over at Fiction is Stranger than Fact where you can find out how you can help Rowan Coleman raise £10,000 for Refuge and the #supportafriend campaign.


And just to be boring, here’s Fizz (escapee, part-time shark, early (very) morning alarm clock, killer of feet and surprisingly slender considering the amount of dog food she steals eats) too young at four months to put herself on the shelf?

  1. Thank you for these great links, Teresa. I'm a chronic collector of writing books. My bookshelves are already groaning under my collection...but maybe I could squeeze in just another teeny one??
    I have to say though that I can't believe that angelic little Fizz could possibly do all those naughty things. I'm putting it down to your writerly imagination...Ahem! Rx

    1. I've never had a cat that would eat absolutely anything before - she'll even eat baked beans! Indy is very proud of her, he says she's a dog after his own heart :-) x

    1. She already looks so different from that fuzzy kitten I brought home, Sue. I do feel sorry for her not having another little kitty to play with though :-) x

  7. Thanks for the links! Can't have too many books. I ordered The Painting off Amazon, but have to wait until I go somewhere with wifi before I can download. (My antivirus won't let me do it with a USB from my own computer!)
