Thank God for Sunday

I did about an hour and a half of writing this morning and I've just done the same now. But today is Sunday so I had the time to do that, fitting it around making lunch, washing up etc. But the rest of the week I work 9 - 5.30 so by the time I get home and do the stuff that I need to do there's not a lot of time left for writing and that's assuming that I have the energy. My dream of getting the big break may be some way off given the amount of time that I can give it each week.
It's times like this when I wish that I had spent more time writing when I didn't work. But the kids were little then and they were my priority.
But then, I guess nobody said it would be easy.

Hi gonnabe, I can't help wondering why you're submitting your stories to Australia? Why not to publishers here? Lovely photos on your blog, by the way. If your writing is as engaging, you should have no problem finding a publisher. You are welcome to visit and comment on my blog at any time. Fellow writers are always welcome.

Hi Leigh, I submit to Australia because they buy what I send them -well 50% of the time they do. I've sent my book to a couple of people here and they say that they enjoyed what they read but couldn't offer me representation. So as I've sold a few short stories to an Australian market I thought I'd send my book.
Glad you like the photos.
