I was recently invited to contribute a story to an anthology of ghost stories set in NI and although I haven’t written a short story in a very long time, I decided to give it a go. Why not! I had forgotten just how many hours it takes me to write a story and it has been a wonderful distraction in these strange days. I have been able to let my imagination run on otherworldly things and forget about the everyday and it has been great to achieve some written words at this time, when poems don’t seem to be coming to me at all.
The story is nearly finished and I look forward to seeing it in print later in the year.
