Or should I say “I write”? I received the latest edition of the MCofS members magazine The Scottish Mountaineer, to read that I had came second in the prose section of their literary competition 2012, for my entry titled Acceptance. I’m delighted with that as up to now all my writing has either been opinion based, trip reports or passing on factual information, so to win a prize for a piece of fiction is a bit surprising. You can read it on the MCofS website HERE.
I’m also grateful to TGO magazine for giving me this months letter of the month, with my views on the proposed privatisation of Search and Rescue helicopters. With the additional exposure of the magazine the online petition against this has gained a load more signatures in the last few days, and is now increasing daily. You can sign it HERE.
