I've been trying to add words to my WIP this month. I've added some but not as many as I'd hoped for one reason or another. Ah well, progress is progress I guess however small.

In other writing news I was very excited to have a manuscript longlisted in the WriteMentor Children's novel. Will have to wait and see if it goes any further in the competition but it certainly gives a nice boost.

I have been looking for a writing group to join for some time. I live in quite a rural area and opportunities are not abundant. However, I spotted a few lines about a new group starting the following week in the local paper and so decided to go along. First meeting was on Monday. It's nice to meet some like minded people so hopefully the group will be a success. I was brave and read out some of my work and we have a writing exercise to complete for the next session in a couple of weeks time. I will look forward to it.

March 4 question - Other than the obvious holiday traditions, have you ever included any personal or family traditions/customs in your stories?

After having given this question some thought I can't really think of any family traditions that have made their way into my writing. Not consciously anyway, maybe some small details have slipped in somewhere over the years!

Thank you for stopping by and reading my post. I will hop around some blogs and see what you have all been up to.
