I stopped the traffic in my maidenform bra
It's true. I stretched it across three lanes of the M6.
So anyway, I went to the BICS competition and gave a ten-second pitch to the panel (including the editor of 2000AD) Now they liked the pitch but hated the title so I was out. My brother and two small nieces came to show support and were delighted to see someone dressed as Batman. Later in the car, eldest niece told me I looked like the Joker because I was so pale. Tsk.
All good experience and I'll check it out again next year.
In other news, I started the Intro to Counselling course at Birkbeck and very good it was too. I may start another blog to record events as they unfurl. Obviously, that's just what I need, another displacement activity.
TO DO LIST: Just Desserts, Napalm review (The Edge Of Love), the next fifty pages of the Red Planet entry, production meetings for Justin Hustlin and the new SF novel that I keep dreaming about. Literally. Oh, and I'm still Secretary-General of the United Nations because being a 21st century woman, I have, of course, given up sleep.
Well, it's been a little slice of heaven but I must dash.
