Prizes, and Doctor Who (no spoilers)

This week, on the novel-writing course, our tutor gave us leaflets about the Bridport prize, a short-story competition that she thought we'd be interested in. Now, I'm interested in it, but the closing date for entries is the end of the month, which is quite a tight timescale.

This weekend I've mostly been trying to figure out what I should write, looking back through my collected notes and ideas, and I think I'm on the verge of committing to one, which is good, having taken a long walk in the woods to think about it. Now all I've got to do is actually commit to it, and then write it. Hmm.

I took some time off today, after the walk, to watch this week's Doctor Who, which was absolutely splendid. I had a feeling it was going to be splendid because the opening credits said it was written by Steven Moffat, who was also responsible for The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances, and The Girl In The Fireplace. He's a brilliant writer (and, unlike a certain Mr. Davies, knows how to make very frightening monsters without blowing the budget on CGI...) I was not disappointed.
