Most of the posts on this blog are guest-related but this is my little corner where I say what I’ve been up to…
What I’ve been up to this week:
- I’ve had the first sessions of ‘Plan & Write a Novel’ and ‘Creative Writing – Intermediate’ for my local council’s Adult Learning (evening / weekend classes). I shall be running these online from the end of this month – see https://morgenbailey.wordpress.com/courses for details.
- Story A Day May started for the fifth year and I’ve been posting the prompts each day (see below).
What this blog’s been up to:
Apart from the weekday writing exercises (posted 6pm UK time), this past week’s posts were…

- Not a lot really. A quiet week following the lit fest I blogged about last week. For one reason or another, I’ve not been on my computer much, which is unusual for me, so have lots to catch up on. I have two client editing projects to do in the next couple of weeks with a couple more in the wings, which keeps me out of mischief.
What’s caught my eye online:
- The man with 42 hours to get home http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-27049200
