For those of you interested, my interesting interests for your interest are: fiction writing, trying to get a literary agent, collecting rejection slips. . .! I'm originally from Belfast and now live in London. I run two creative writing workshops and am the editor of a small press magazine. My academic education was in the field of Illustration, though nowadays I mostly paint pictures with words. I'm currently working on my second novel, a supernatural horror yarn set in the past. 100 words seems to me an ideal discipline - if any of us wish to make it as writers we need to get into a daily habit of working at our craft.
