What are you writing? e.g. novel, short story, poem, play, screenplay

I'm really into short fiction right now - it's a great intellectual challenge in concision, can be just as moving as anything when done well, and fits well with an overly busy life right now! But once I feel I've gotten it up to scratch, I'm hoping to tackle a novel :)

Micro fiction: why did Karen hit the red Volkswagen?

"You see?" she said, replacing her two-by-four, "absolutely spotless. You could do your hair in that." She leaned in to the prospect and let slip her most conspiratorial wink. "Sometimes, I do." She stroked the hood, tracing the delicate lines of bodywork. "There, there, girl," said Karen. "Mommy's not gonna hurt you."


My name's James. That's me on the left, sharing a multicoloured box with my beloved housemates. By day I (we all, in fact) work in advertising. By night I try to write something as good as what enchants me when I read. One day!
