I’m off on my holidays now and won’t be back until the new year. For anyone who missed my link over at Smugglivus, I thought I’d share a Christmas short story with you guys. This story was first published in The Irish Independent in 2008 and features one of my new main characters – Joseph. I drew did this little gif of him, especially for the Smugglivus post. (I chose to draw Joseph as the seventeen year old he is in the book, even though this short story takes place six years before the book starts and he is only eleven in it.) If you fancy having a gander, just press the gif. It will take you straight to the short story ( it really is short btw! Only 1000 words!) I hope you enjoy it, and I hope you enjoy your holidays too. In the meantime slán, happy holidays and happy New Year!
- So many writers come to class with one question dominant in their mind, 'How do I make a living from this?' It's a fair enough question and one I always try to answer well - but it saddens me that it so often overshadows the more relevant questions of 'why am I writing' and 'what am I saying' and 'how do I keep it honest.'
