This is the first lunch break at work I have had where the hour didn't get gobbled up by present searching, coursework, bill paying, flat hunting, various other things that I have possible blocked out for stress inducing reasons. I'm better now I am happy to say. Everything from that knot in my stomach to that crater on my face - all gone! Not sure whether it's the Kalms that I've been taking or the lack of crap things happening of late but I actually feel quite relaxed. I got my first TMA into my tutor last week (more on that in my next post) and we FINALLY have internet (can I get an Amen!! - it was definitely a miracle we got it in the end). O2 were useless blaming everything but themselves for the delay. There was one saving grace though - in their Glasgow branch. A very nice man called Clive. He is definitely on my Crimbo card list and my list of people who to call should I ever decide to move again (never again!!!)
Womag 2 Weekly is closed for short story submissions until January so I have until then to pull another shorty out of the bag. Sadly I am yet to report a short story sale. I remain optimistic as I still have some with The Weekly News (sending good thoughts your way Jill! - as if that's all it takes :S). This will give me time to work on the novel also as I have become a member of Chapter2Weekly which the lovely Suzanne Jones has founded for us novel wannawriters or in my case finishers.
That's all for now. I promise to come back soon with more about my OU course (which I am LOVING btw)
