Missed!

Oh bloggie friends, I am silly!

I was all set to listen to a reading of the wonderful Brigid of Sort of Writing blog’s short story on RTE Radio 1 live for 11.15pm last night and what happens?

I torment Charlie with his string, I play Memory from Cats on youtube infinitum, I’m looking up my horoscope and clicking on the “ask the crystal ball” a yes or no question…

Next thing I know it’s 11.25 pm. The story has been read, the radio programme has changed. I miss the whole thing completely.

Brigid – I am so sorry!!

Charlie says: My head seems to be missing.



Thank you all so much for your words of encouragement for my longlisted story!! Oh well - it's now in the lap of the editorial gods and goddesses!

My blog is one year old today! Yay!

Urgh! I have too short of an attention span to ever catch things like this, too. On the upside... i think it is a sign of writer's brain...
