I have written but one article this week – a post for Ten Tracks outlining some of the best Scottish music blogs.
However, you will doubtless be thrilled to hear that there are Plans Afoot. For one, myself and Andrew will be live blogging Eurovision on Saturday over on my personal blog, A Daddy Long Legs is Not A Father. The idea behind this is to give me a bit more practice using Coverit Live, because the editor of The Edinburgh Reporter made an interesting 12 Books related suggestion that would entail using it. But in an enigmatic sort of way, I’m not going to tell you any more than that just now. More information is coming soon, though.

Guest post for Mslexia on finding your voice as an author
I helped out with live coverage of election night for The Edinburgh Reporter (manning the twitter, taking photos and uploading results posts) which extended from 8.30pm on election night until 4pm the following day.
I did a post on my personal blog about advice I’ve received on freelance journalism which blatantly belongs here, I have just realised. Perhaps I’ll post it here later.
Things I’ve written since last we spake:
Cameo Night of Horror for The Edinburgh Reporter
Scottish Election Special on Ten Tracks
Meanwhile, on 12 Books in 12 Months I am answering questions from readers over the next month or so.
To celebrate my 101st post on this blog… have some links to things I’ve been writing elsewhere this week.
