Comments on the first 3 months.

Can you believe that it's April already? Where on earth has the time gone?
I thought I'd have a look at my "What to Where" folder and see what I've done in the time that has flown by. I have submitted 21 pieces of work of which 4 have been accepted, 7 not (if you know what I mean) and the rest are still technically in with a chance. There are also 3 pieces outstanding from the end of last year which I haven't heard about mainly from That's Life! (Aus) and as I've had acceptances from them after 8 months before now I'm choosing to believe that they are still in with a chance too. As 21 in 3 months averages out at 7 a month I think that's okay.
I've also started my big new project in that time - twice. That's coming along slowly but surely. It's like everything else, I wish I had more time for it. Hopefully unless there is a change in plan I will get some time on it today. Also I am now part of a writing group which requires me to write a short story every 2 weeks which is a great discipline and also the standard is so high that its certainly made me up my game.
That was it really, just thought that I would share a few random thoughts with you. Time to go and wake Himself up now so that we can "enjoy" (you will darling I promise you) our day off together.

That sounds like excellent progress, Colette - well done indeed! Glad you've found a writing group too - I'm sure that will help when times are rough. Happy Easter!

Sound like you have your work cut out for you... Emm, I mean keeping himself happy not your writing project, Colette. ;-) You've done very well on that front.

Have a wonderful Easter and good luck with your writing group.

Sue - the writing group has improved my writing no end.
Suzanne - Thanks Suzanne, it does feel like progress.
Jarmara - I think he had a good day but I won't ask him just in case.

Joanne - I know, it's ridiculous how quickly time passes.
Helen - Thanks, lets hope that I can keep it up.
