Yes more terrible sayings ahoy...
I am back on the horse. I have resubbed my rejected story today to Woman's Weekly. I very much doubt it will be accepted (yes confidence knocked quite a bit but they are a tough market). Why did I chose WW I hear you cry? Well my reasons are threefold:
1. I checked out the guidelines on Womag's blog and I saw at least 3 times a mention of them willing to accept crime/mystery stories.
2. I was going to sub to TABFF as I know they sometimes run a 'crime time' story but I already have 2 stories I want to sub there and I don't want to bombard them.
3. This reason is quite a lazy one. I had already subbed to The Weekly News who require double quotes for speech as do WW so it seemed silly to change to single for TABFF and then back again.
In other news I have dusted off the novel that has been resting since October. It's very daunting but the foundations have been laid and now I just have to build on them (that was the last one I promise)
