Three Beautiful Window Things

There’s a rainbow on my desk where the cold sunshine is coming through the window. I cup my hands so I can hold the rainbow.

Three tiny handprints show up in the condensation on the window pane. Proof that 21 month Amelia visited yesterday.

It’s raining leaves and feathers. Actually, only one of each. I see them drift past my window.

What are you doing Saturday?

That's Saturday 15 October, and I shall be in Wellington, Shropshire. Apparently Wrekin Writers ‘are delighted that Lynne Hackles has agreed to run the October workshop’. I hope they’ll be as delighted by the time I’ve spent the day with them.
The day is actually split into two workshops. From 10am to 12.30pm (£5 or £4.50 if you book in advance) I’m running one on Ghost-writing, something worth every writer considering if they are trying to earn money from their art.
From 1.30 to 4.00pm (£5 or £4.50 if you book in advance) there’s Short Story Writing. I shall be covering writing for magazines as well as for competitions.
To reserve your place on either or both of these workshops, log on to www.wrekinwriters.co.uk or phone Darren Bailey on 01952 405 178.
The Civic Centre, Wellington @ 10am and/or 1.30pm
