  1. Hi Rich, congratulations on being shortlisted for the ‘still’ competition.

    What pieces have you had published in the Telgraph/Guardian – and how did you go about submitting them?
    Also, I’d like to see the original jumper/wallpaper colour clash please!

    1. Hi Jonny, mainly travel – the Guardian prize is still open, via their website and the Telegraph runs a weekly comp called Just Back. The jumper was Villa colours – not my choice! I’ll have a look at your blog when I escape work.

  2. Rich, I wish you good fortune in all your writing endeavors. I’ve always heard it’s harder to build a readership with short stories, especially when published separately. I suppose if you contribute regularly to a popular magazine, or a literary quarterly, it does become easier. I may eventually challenge myself to write an anthology to publish under one cover, as I have quite a few story ideas spinning around in my head. For the moment, though, I’m concentrating my efforts on novels. I’ve just published one, which you are free to check out, if you wish. I hope to publish another one in 2014, and at least one every year thereafter. I’m not aiming for any awards. I simply want to entertain. By the way, I discovered your blog through “beetleypete,” (one of your followers). Pete has a witty style that I find highly enjoyable. He also waxes nostalgic here and there, and, since we are roughly the same age, I can easily identify with his sentiments. .

    1. Thanks for stopping by and good luck with your writing. Yes, the difference between writing novels and short stories is huge….I enjoy writing shorts more, but it’s nice to work on a longer piece that develops isn’t it? Writing one a year is good!
