Shopping, Museums and a place Named Nowhere

Simon Marshall Jones' has revealed the cover of my chapbook 'Nowhere Hall' over on his blog. It's by Daniele Serra and is gorgeous. So excited and I can't believe I get another awesome cover. Luck can't keep spinning my way. I've printed the cover out and pinned it to my inspiration board.

Finally opened the file for 'The Museum of Impossible Artefacts' today. Okay, I've opened it on other days, but today I actually added words. Phew!  I wrote myself into a corner on the 30th while trying to get as many words as possible down and I think I've just about crawled out. Gosh, it was dark in there. I'm hoping to finish the first draft this week (I'm off work - yay! Supposed to be Christmas shopping - boo!), and maybe then I'll write a short story and edit another. Or I may just twitter the week away. Goodness, I hope not.

Aaron Polson has added a Weird and Creepy Shopping List for Christmas on his blog, but he forgot one book... This. I've said it before and I'll say it again, typing 'Loathsome Aaron Polson' is just wrong.

As a writer, nothing excites me more than a piece of art inspired by my words. Congratulations on inspiring something awesome, Cate.
