So my good writing buddy Sarah Lewis just went and got herself a special mention in this year's BBC Short Story Award. Pretty farkin' awesome and very well deserved. Sarah runs the Brighton Writers Retreat - a procrastination-busting monthly workshop entailing lots of biscuits, lots of words, and gold stars for well-behaved writers. In her own words, the aim is to "stop f***ing about and start writing". Wise woman, indeed. Anyway, you can read her story, Healing the State of Man, here. Beware. It will make you feel stuff.
