Tiny things

My teeny story "Glimmer" is in a new magazine called "What the Dickens" - you can read it here, alongside words by Kirsty Logan, Angela Readman and Sandy East (amongst others).

I like wigleaf very much. It's the coolest, smartest lit kid on the block. They just tweeted "Pre-written Facebook statuses (to save people time): "I'm rich!" "I'm smart!" "I play with the big boys!" "I'm talented!" "I'm important!""
Hee hee.

I feel the need to mention Pan Am. It's clearly a Mad Men wannabe with no substance and nowhere near as much style as it wishes it had. I have to watch though because - Donna from Neighbours! Also, what the fuck is Christina Ricci doing? She seems to be channeling Betty Boop. 

In other bad telly news I am persevering with The Ringer purely because, y'know, she was Buffy. It reminds me of Sunset Beach in both a good and bad way. Also it seems clear that Sarah Michelle Gellar is not so great an actress but Whedon is such a genius it wasn't a problem.

Loved reading Glimmer, you clever little monkey.

Wigleaf is FAB. Also, your story is FAB.

Pan Am, not so much. I gave up on it after four episodes. Made me want to be watching Mad Men.

I'd watch The Ringer if I could, for the same reasons you're watching. Thank goodness The Mentalist continues to be good (loved the red balloon episode, although last night's hustle was a bit daft. On the other hand, we got to see Cho's forearms. Always a pleasure, never a chore).

Now I have lowered the tone of your blog, I shall depart. Bye!

"Glimmer" is beautiful, Sara, so evocative and a beautiful closing scene and last line. Beautiful magazine layout and design too. Congratulations.
