Proud as Punch!
I am proud to share with you that I have just completed a short story writing course with The Writing Magazine. YAY!
I started the course earlier this year after repeated rejections from the womags. I thought, and rightly so, my short story writing needed refining in order to become more marketable. Supported and guided by my tutor, the lovely Lynne Hackles, I ventured into a variety of genre that I wouldn’t have even thought about exploring: romance, ghost stories and unusual settings, which sent me hurtling into a bush fire on the outskirts of Sydney. How thrilling, albeit it dangerous. And, very hot!
I now feel a lot more prepared and in a better position to sell my short stories to the numerous women’s magazines and have just popped a couple in the post. Fingers crossed!
