Friday Fiction – Celebration

My Friday Fiction post this week is inspired by the prompt - Celebration - given by Sara from mumturnedmom. Right, have you ordered the champagne? And the canapés? I want a glitz and glamour Hollywood Oscars theme. Make sure there's a red carpet; must have the red carpet. Lots of gold shimmer - I'm ... READ the POST

Inspirational Writing

I’ve been a closet writer for the last few years and it wasn’t until I did NaNoWriMo last November, that I actually plucked up the courage to socialise with other writers.
