Well, I don’t seem to have any readers at all, which is not surprising really for a blog with no posts at all, but just in case anyone is lurking out there, here is an update on the life of cathythewriter.
On the writing front I have today entered a novel competition and a short memoir competition and submitted Module Three of the online short-story writing course I’m doing (and enjoying).
On the reading front, I’m making disciplined headway with my commuting consumption of classics. I’ve read Kafka’s Metamorphosis and Other Stories which was pretty fantastic and I’m now on Jane Austen’s Emma which is tedious in the extreme. Bedtime reading has recently included The Sea by John Banville (wonderful) and Souvenirs Pieux by Marguerite Yourcenar (difficult). As a special treat to myself for next week’s bank holiday weekend and my visit to Borneo I today downloaded Live at the Brixton Academy by Simon Parkes.
And there you have it.
