Success!!

Over a month since my last post - I'm ashamed!   But we are now half way through the summer holidays which is always a period of juggling!   I've been trying to fit in  the odd bursts of writing whenever I get a few spare minutes - usually in Sainsbury's cafe when I'm between taxi journeys - not the cheapest way to write. I've also been looking for a new job, but despite getting the interviews the job always seems to be just out of my grasp. But after a long period of rejection, I'm delighted to say that today I received a phonecall from a lovely lady at Prima magazine, to tell me that they are going to publish a story I sent them recently.  It really made my day and gave me a real boost when I needed it most.  Thank you Prima! They accept 800 word stories, so the wordcount is pretty tight, but with the ever decreasing outlets for Womag stories, its definitely worth a try. Now I'm going to have a very large glass of wine to celebrate!
