This and that

Okay, so what has happened since the last time that I was here? Well I got another rejection but that came as no surprise because if you remember the last time I got a rejection I said that I knew what the problem was and feared that the other story that they were holding had the same one. Clearly it did.

I've also been "getting on" with a few of the things that I mentioned the other day. I have submitted 2 stories and have another just waiting to be dropped into the post box. I've also done some research on a couple of articles and even looked at a possible agent for BTL. I'm just not sure if I'm ready to let that baby fly yet.

Thursday is usually a good writing day for me but I fear that won't be the case today. I have to go out at one o'clock and will be out for the rest of the afternoon. Before that I have to walk the dog and as I've been up since 5am I might try and fit in a nap. I hate waking uo early because I spend most of the time tired enough as it is but when I've been up early I'll be no good to anyone after about 6pm. I might get an hour or so's writing in tonight if I can stay awake that long.

Right so I'm going to print off the cover sheet that I forgot to do when I printed the rest of the story out yesterday and post my latest mini masterpiece off as I walk the dog. Did you see that? Two birds with one stone. Now if I could only sleep walk the dog I'd be laughing.

Sorry you are waking up so early. I've been awake at 5am this week too - infuriating. Best of luck with your submissions - keep at it! x

How I wish I could do two things at once. Good luck with your masterpieces, my dear friend.

FP - It did suck being awake so early but thankfully it doesn't happen to me very often.
Lily - here's hoping for some good group news soon - a couple of mine are W2W
Jarmara - thanks. I guess a 5am start would seem pretty late to you.
Jenny - it happens. Just got to dust yourself down and try again.
Helen - thanks
