I'm reformatting this over the next day or two; if you're interested in owning a first edition then get your order in before the weekend.  ;)

Bollocks, just hit the point of reading back over some dialogue for a azne submission and it's painful work, dialogue is not my strong point.

I'm with you on this. I hate writing dialogue, it always feels forced, mainly because it is.

I hate going back over an old script and reading a line so bad it makes me cringe and almost curl up like a Quaver.

One of my narrative crimes: "You make me think I need more time for second thoughts so give me a second, will ya?"

I have a few copies of my novel (9 to be exact) available to buy directly from me. £9.99 inc p&p and I will sign and write a personalised message on request, if you like. Drop me a PM if you're interested. It's the perfect gift for birthdays, anniversaries, bar mitzvahs, christenings, Easter, Christmas, just buy the damn book, already!

Does anyone know any short story themed writing groups or comps I could stick my name into? Find it hard to come up with ideas some days so having a set target oike our own monthly short story comp is a big help whilst practicing!

Not a writing group but this should help you get some ideas.
