Hello to anyone who might be out there.
This is my first blog. Crosses fingers that anyone might actually be out there and might read this.
I've been a writer for just as long as I can remember but have had more rejections that I actually care to contemplate. Just when I was thinking about giving it all up for good I had my first short story published courtesy of a Writers' Forum competition. The short story was not a "winner" but a just about about got there and was published in The Weekly News. To see my name published (and not just for a reader's letter) and to actually receive payment for it was just about the most exhilarating thing I have ever experienced and it gave me the boost to carry one.
I've been tramping about other people's blogs for a while now but never had the bottle to do it for myself. My technological expertise isn't up to much either, so please forgive me. Perhaps I'll learn as I go along.
I have written the first draft of a contempory woman's novel but have got lost somewhere in the first edit. Despairing of gettin anywhere with it though, I've decided to put it to one side for a month and have joined NaNoWriMo for the duration of November. After week one I've written 15,000 words which is something of a phenonmenum for me so I'm hoping that I can carry on for the rest of the month and reach the 15,000 target. Again fingers crossed.
Anyway, don't want to bore anyone who might be reading this but would welcome any comments from all you writers out there.
