I have finally subbed!!!!!!!
So much for blogging daily huh! Anyway I am back now after a busy old week and a bit and I am pleased to say I have FINALLY subbed a story to My Weekly. It took a few hours here and there, over the course of a fortnight, to write the story after which the very lovely and talented Karen Clarke kindly offered to read it. So on Sunday evening I sent it over to her. I was shaking with nerves each time I opened an email from her: the first to say she had received it and the second to say the attachment wouldn't open. By the time I received a third email with her critique I was quaking in my boots. What if she didn't like it? What if she told me to give it up? I needn't have worried though. She didn't tell me I was completely useless nor was she too nice to say where I was going wrong. Thank you again Karen!! It was an invaluable learning experience and with any luck I might make a sale (I can but dream). So there it is, a promise to myself kept - I am no longer a womag subbing virgin. Now its back to the Heaven short story for Cally Taylor's competition. Its just non stop!
