This week, a story I already debuted to my MA class on Wednesday. I had to read the whole thing out, so as a result, it’s a bit shorter than usual. A snip at just under 500 words, which is about half what I normally do.
It’s also a bit depressing. Sorry about that. It was written shortly after a conversation with a friend about jobhunting, and I’m an easily influenced writer.
Gentle middle-aged sitcom Roger And Val Have Just Got In is predictably loved by me on The Digital Fix.

Being Human returns for its fourth series on Sunday, having ditched most of its cast. I watch the first episode of the new era and judge without spoilers on The Digital Fix.
Well, maybe not anymore. And no, you probably don’t need to read the original. Anyway, yes, this is once again a reflection on something that really happened. Are these stories close to becoming a form of therapy for me?
