Strange things are afoot at the circle K...

Hello, all. Apologies for the absence - many things are afoot in the crazy world of Icy at the moment. I just got engaged to my fabulous other half, I've gotten involved with the very excellent Chinese Whisperings project, I'm trying (and succeeding) to keep up with my reading (I'm onto my second book of February - first was John Marks' Fangland, now it's Jasper Fforde's Lost in a Good Book), and I'm learning Russian.

Still, I am a writer, and you'll (hopefully) be glad to know that I'm actually writing again. Not only am I redrafting my beloved novel, Fowlis Westerby, I'm also going to be doing something slightly new. At the end of January, I posted a flash fiction called Still Running, and it got a lot of people asking questions on Twitter. It seems that people wanted to know more, so I've decided to write an online serial, using my flash as a starting point! I'll be starting a new blog purely for this purpose, and I am to post a new installment every Friday...starting tomorrow!

Call back, won't you, and check it out...

(In lieu of any relevant stock imagery to accompany this post, I decided to go with a photo of my own, purely because I like it. It was taken inside Dover Castle last summer...)

Congratulations on your engagement, Icy! And a serialized story, too. Sounds like the creative juices are flowing.

Yeah, I kept getting loads of ideas for it today...usually when I was in no position to write them down!

Maybe you should carry a small tape recorder.

BTW, did you ever work out readability with Word 2007? I found another way to do it: Go to "Preferences", then "Spelling and Grammar", then "Grammar", then check "Show Readability Statistics". Hope it helps.
