What's happening in Womag land? Are you researching, writing, subbing? Had any acceptances or rejections? Any other news?
Do you have tips to share, questions to ask, or suggestions for this blog?
The photo is of me throwing my wedding bouquet – eight years ago today. (It was caught by my oldest friend's teenage daughter, which got me into trouble!) Feel free to use it as a picture prompt. If you'd like other writing prompts, short exercises and story/scene suggestions then you might find this book useful. (If you read the comments to this post, you'll see it's a wise investment!)
Our wedding anniversary is a special day when it comes to writing too, as 'writer' is what it says for my profession on the certificate. Back then I wasn't doing it full time, but I knew that was going to happen.
My own womag news – I'm not writing much womag stuff at the moment, as I'm concentrating on a novel (a contemporary romance with a bit of crime thriller and several castles swirled into the mix). In the last month or so I've had stories accepted by YOU, My Weekly and The People's Friend. One of my stories is in the current Fiction Feast (likely to be my last for that market due to them now taking all rights) and I'll have one in The People's Friend next week.
I've just set up a newsletter mailing list. It's very much a work in progress, but if you'd like to be amongst the first to sign up, you can do so here.
