In other news: curiouswombat has come up with a possible reason for why I've been feeling unwell for the past couple of weeks. I'm trying a radical change of diet and hopefully it will help. Maybe I'll be able to stay awake tonight and get some writing done instead of flaking out.
Today is the last day for sign-ups for the watchersdiaries' August 'Tales of Witches and Demons' ficathon, for original character witch and/or demon stories. Anyone who fancies having a go should get over there now to sign up.
I was going to stay out of it; I've got far too many other commitments already. However it was tempting. The first 'Tales of Slayers and Vampires' there inspired me to produce what is almost certainly the best thing that I have ever written; The Cloak of Mist. Eventually I gave in to temptation and I have signed up to do a Witch story.
It will be a prequel of sorts to my other entrant in that first ficathon, Deid Canny, but taking place thirty years earlier. A young witch in the bloody days of the Border Reivers. Look out for 'Days of No Trust', coming soon to a computer near you.
