    Hello Lou,
    my query is not about the above quote. If poss., if you don't mind I'd like to know if you contributed to any of the Wyvern Press anthologies? I thought I saw your name linked with theirs some place on the web.

    I created a website http://www.StoryPlanner.com, because I often used template writing plans for character outlines, story structure, synopsis, and even composing cover letters to agents... So I put all these things in one place, with the ability to plan online.

    Hope the site might be useful to other writers. As it's new I welcome feedback and will add more plans suggested by writers who like that kind of thing. :)
  • And other one... www.uk-arts.org/writing . It's the Uk Creative Arts website, and they run a comp called Creativate National Writing Competition.

    Excellent link. Many of those 'free' sites divert one to a fee or charge screen.

    Thanks for your concern I may become bored during quarantine but being a writer I'd rather be on a day trip with Willy Wonker ...

    ... There is no life I know
    To compare with pure imagination ...

    PS - Where is Betsie?
