http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chapbook offers an overview of the chapbook, from the 16th century to modern times.  Good ideas never die.

I haven't done much writing of late, but have tentatively started work on a book about some soft pigs (pigs which I own incidentally, for which I have constructed over the years an elaborate fantasy life style and history). I have only written 1000 or so words so far, but have also started a blog about them to get the ball rolling. So far I am the only visitor, but it doesn't matter, as it is the writing that counts !

To Sideshunter,

That is good news, I do not know you, but I will send out butterflies of hope for you into the universe.

I don't do butterflies, but well done so far.  Keep writing.

Gyppo,
I put your website into my FAV.list because it seems to deal with the kind of help I am needing.  Is that you in the picture?

Hairy chap with a beard and a ponytail?  That's me.  Photo taken a couple of years ago at a Gypsy Horse Fair, a fairly local annual event.  My camera, but daughter doing the shutterwork.

I  need to start posting regularly again on that website.  I've neglected it badly for far too long due to ill-health and other things taking up my time.  One of my excuses was that it had been hacked, and then the servers went down for a while, but I believe it has all been sorted now so there is no longer any real excuse except inertia/laziness.  You may have just given me a well-needed kick up the arse.

It's never stupid to be thrilled by your own success ;-)  Assuming you don't do something silly like dancing out through the window of a seventeenth story flat.

Well done.

result of poetry comp: i took fourth prize; £15 and four free books. i chose a novel a book of short stories and a couple of poetry anthologies. my two poems also go into an anthology. not bad for a totally free competition. :)
