Yesterday I wrote 907 words on Penal Earth before work. When I got home I popped onto Facebook, as you do, and saw the announcement of the Corona-Nation St anthology from Burdizzo Books, which features my story, The Wank Diaries, amongst the many fine writers works included. I am super stoked for this. Much of this story was written at a time when I was going through my own personal hell and I think some of that gets reflected in the story. Brian Keene refers to it as Bleeding onto the page. That is something I’ve done in the past and something I think will happen more, simply because that’s what we do. When we create we tap into what we’ve experienced in life. Whether it’s light and fluffy or dark and hard. We put it on the page.
Back to Corona-Nation St though, its a charity anthology that’ll be tasing funds for a NHS related charity. It has a hell of a table of contents as well: Matthew Cash
M. B. Feeney
Richmond A. Clements
Patrick R. McDonagh
Like seriously, there is a hell of a lot of talent here. I really cannot wait to get my hand on a copy of it 🙂
Back to writing though, I’ve got a fair amount of time today that I’m going to aim for about a thousand words and then I’ve got a few bits and pieces to do around the house and then I’m going to crack on with some more of this filing.
Have a good day, folks!
