Risking the hex

Do you remember a few weeks ago when I told you that I'd read about a freelance author who never submitted in December? Their theory was that editors didn't commission as much and they lost submissions etc. Well I thought to myself "What the hec! I'll take the risk" (brave soul that I am) and I have submitted. Yes that is correct I have risked the December hex and sent out a story.
I wanted to go back and read the article again so that I could clarify a few things but I can't find it and I can't remember who the author was so I can't look them up. Thinking about it they may well have been just referred to as "a freelance writer". Anyway couldn't find it - what a shocker!
Then I thought that maybe the whole December thing had just been said for effect because as a freelancer their income is not guaranteed so they must make loads in the other 11 months.
I wanted to submit so I did and I wanted to tell you so I have.
Now I'm off to make fish pie (insight into my domesticity.)

I'm not superstitious so subbing in December wouldn't bother me. Good luck.

Mmm, fish pie. Save some for me.

The 3 fish pies that I made are now in the freezer captain but when we're going to eat it you're invited to tea.

Hi Gottawrite Girl. I'm glad that you like the blog and you are very welcome.

Thanks Debs, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
