In a bit of a Fankle

Posted: 21st December 2014 by Lucy Cameron in Uncategorized

This month I have been lucky enough to guest edit ‘The Fankle.’ ‘What’s The Fankle?’ I hear you cry? ‘The Fankle’ is a pamphlet (for want of a more appropriate word) that showcases local writing talent in the Dumfries and Galloway area. Every two months there is a theme set for writing poetry or prose. The […]

Drabble – ‘A story of exactly 100 words.’ As summer turns to autumn it brings the joy of a new drabble challenge. In October 2014 I entered a 100 word story into Jack Bates’s Autumn Drabble at where it has now been published. The story was to be inspired by the picture below.   Best […]

Having missed the Bloody Scotland Crime Writing Festival last year (even though I live in Scotland) I was determined to get there this year.

I have had some business cards designed and printed.   They were designed by a friend, Anna Price. I am very pleased with them. You all know next time you see me one will be winging your way – If it hasn’t already.    

Where to begin to write about the Theakston Festival 2014? The outstanding and well organised venue? The fun and informative panels? The addition of a beer tent? The book tepee? The chance to chat to dozens of crime readers and writers at the bar? All of the above and much, much more is what makes […]

Character description

Posted: 8th July 2014 by Lucy Cameron in Uncategorized

I am currently attending a very interesting creative writing class at the University of West Scotland. Last week we focused on character. The task was to write a short piece of character description (funnily enough). I was very pleased with my piece – especially when it got top marks. Take a look at it under […]
