I won't mention the snow...


I won't mention the snow, except perhaps to say that my toes are ice cubes waiting on a dash of vodka and my car has crystallized. No, I won't mention the snow, except perhaps to add that the schools are shut and my teenager has a new song about our house being minus five degrees... Any way back to writing, I've finally edited my latest story down to 2,000 words so it will qualify for the RTE Short Story Competition, it meant I lost an orgy scene but in this weather I can't say I regret it...

Hi Niamh, I wont mention the snow, said enough about that for one day.
Lovely to have you back and hope you thaw out soon, best of luck with the RTE comp, I will be resurrecting an orphan for that myself, the closing date is soon, must get organised.

Old Kitty -Thankyou! And Baileys!...thats a really good idea! Might brave the shop one last time for a bottle of something! It's the safest approach to being housebound!

Michael - Thanks, nice to be back!

Brigid
Good luck with the story, and the deadline... my blessings to your orphan!

Sorry you lost your orgy scene Niamh. If I see one around anywhere, I'll give you a shout.

Jan Morrison said...

how careless of you,my dear, losing an orgy! Jeesh. I may have to nab it then. And snow - well it came here but I paid it no mind and it left again so...
it'll be back like a toothache, like the taxman, like the landlord's hand but until it appears we'll pretend we never heard of it.
welcome back!

Welcome back, Niamh! Could you not keep the orgy scene and lose everything else? : )

Niamh B said...

That does mean you'll be posting the Orgy Scene here obviously?

Good to see you back

Mohamed Mughal said...

Please find a way to put that orgy scene back in....please...maybe with mittens and earmuffs...please?

Words A Day said...

Mohamed
Mittens and earmuffs! Lol! Certainly worth considering!

Maire
Excellant idea! Would that make it Flash Fiction then?!?

Jan
Ah - a toothache, the taxman, the landlord's hand - you've got something there! Good title for a poem too!

Aquamarina
