Back From Rome and Some Competitions

A quick post, as my head doesn't seem to have got back from Rome even if my body has! We had a good week. It was very tiring as we walked miles. The weather was very kind. We even saw the Pope and the Popemobile. I'll post some photos over the next few days.

Congratulations to my friend and tutor Sue Johnson on her publishing contract.

Sue's Flash fiction competition on the theme of STARS closes on 30 November 2010. Details at

Another friend is holding a short story and poetry contest with the theme Domestic Violence. Closing date: 30th November. Further details from: or

Back soon with photographs of Rome. Mx


  1. Welcome home! Gosh, I'd bet you'd rather still be in Rome...

  2. I think after seven days I was all Romed out! You can't beat home comforts. Daniel back to school tomorrow too. Mx

  3. I'd love to go to Rome when its cool enough for all the sightseeing.

    Welcome home, and back into reality x

  4. You are right about the reality - loads of washing and writing! Mx

  5. It's nice to meet a fellow writer (via Flowerpot). I adore Rome, though have only visited briefly during a cruise stopover, and would love to go again. One day...

  6. Hi Elee,
    I think as part of a cruise might be the best way - seven days in Rome was exhausting. I'll put a few photos up in the next few days. Mx
