Haven't blogged for so long that I struggled to open a new post
The editing of Abnormal is going okay though - hence my lengthy absence
I went to the #wemconf2015 WEM Writers' Conference 2015 last weekend with the lovely Cat Roberts-Young
Similar format to last year. Here is a taster in pictures:

The Goody Bag table - (Keep calling them Doggy Bags. Similarly tasty, perhaps)

A quick selfie whilst waiting for the next talk...
Maureen Duffy - Keynote Speaker - delivers an interesting writer-reality-check talk.
'Don't give up the day job'
The talk on Freedom to Write was thought-provoking. Writers' responsibilities and considerations - particularly in lieu of the Charlie Hebdo Tragedy. I also listened to an entertaining natter on Writing Humour/Satire (something I do need help with). And the final talk my little brain strained to absorb was the gritty Nuts and Bolts of Writing. All useful and well put-together stuff :)
