Lent's almost over. There's a bottle of Jameson on the kitchen worktop. The kids are in bed. I'm closing in on 1,000 words for today's novel-in-progress output. And best of all, the postman brought me a reason to celebrate today...
The Art's Council of Northern Ireland have offered me a small award that'll allow me to ditch the dayjob for a month and live the life of a full-time writer! Feckin' sweet!
So, I'd like to officially thank the Arts Council of Northern Ireland and their Arts Development Officer, Damian Smyth.
The time is intended to help me complete the first draft of the current novel-in-progress (working title SHOT), and by God, I intend to do just that.
