Well done calistro

I do hope that calistro doesn't mind me posting this but here goes. I'm sure that you're all familiar with her blog and know this already but I thought that it was worthy of comment. In common with a lot of the blogs that I read, I haven't visited her blog for a couple of weeks but I was there this morning and read that she's got herself a publisher. This is fantastic news and her agent has done a great job in a relatively short time.
I just wanted to say here, publicly on my blog that I am really happy for you calistro and your success gives hope to the rest of us. It really can happen if we work at it.
For those of you that aren't familiar with calistro's blog follow the writing about writing link.
I'm now off to check the other places that I haven't bee to in a while. Who knows what's been going on.

Thank you so much Gonna Be! :o)

I'm so glad my news is inspiring other people. A big part of me worries that people will think I'm a big horrible show-off posting my news and celebrating in public but I do feel as though my blog has been a journey from unpublished to published so it's only right to share what's going on with everyone who reads it. When Caroline Smailes was discovered by The Friday Project I loved sharing in her excitement and all the ups and downs of the publishing process and if my blog does the same for other writers I'd be very happy.

I can't speak for everyone but I love sharing the joy. Anyone who thinks you're a show off is just jealous. I for one want to hear about the whole thing - including what you're going to wear for the big meeting.

Me too I want to know everything because I want to know what to expect when my turn comes.

Best wishes,GBW and thank you for the cuppa and chat.

There's such a lot of bad news about that it's great to share something good for a change.
