Writing Update – Excitement!

The past week has been quite a productive week (yay!) and I have exciting news! So please excuse the use of exclamation marks! I promise I won’t use more than one at a time!


Flash Fiction Anthologies!

As of today, my final edits for the Jozi Flash flash fiction anthology are finished. And the best part? It will be free! It will be available on the blog as soon as it is released over the next few weeks! You will also be able to read some of Nthato Morakabi’s great fiction in the anthology! (Check out Nthato’s blog if you haven’t done so already.)

I also started my Wattpad page last week (with thanks to Ronel Janse van Vuuren for the good advice). “Taken by the Wind” is available to read there as well as a collection of other flash fiction stories (which I am still adding to) called Yesterday’s Colours and Other Stories.

Other Flash Fiction

I ended up not writing for #FlashMobWrites last week, but only for Cracked Flash Fiction. I’ll post the story, “Dust to Dust to Life”, during the week.

Other writing

If you’ve perhaps missed it, I posted the article “Chonically or Mentally Ill Does Not Mean Unable” on Friday on the blog. It is on a subject which is really close to my heart.

I am also still busy with the short stories and flash fiction for the Afrikaans anthology and the anthology I am calling Dim Mirrors. I did not get too much time to work on these during the week, but this week is looking promising. The work on the NaNo novel is also ongoing.

Until next time…
