What's Occurin'?


Well, I’ve had a lovely email from My Weekly saying my story will be in the August 1st issue. Tidy. They are so lovely at My Weekly, and this week they are my very favourite magazine!

And I’m half way through the novel re-write! I know! And better still, I’ve had a brainwave – yes really! It’s transformed the whole thing and now it’s blinking marvellous, even if I do say so myself! No, only joking! But it is coming together!

Ooh, and I’m entering the Tonto Competition, all thanks to the lovely, DJ for pointing me in its general direction! I have a few ideas for that, but they have yet to find their way onto the page!

So that’s me in a nutshell, quite frankly. Genuine!

Thanks Shirley, I especially love their illustrations.x

Keep plugging away on the re-write. I have to say my first novel is unrecognisable now from when I 1st started it. It's true what they say about leaving it in a drawer to cool...

Amanda said...

I will do, Angel - I think the re-write is harder in some ways! I take things out in one chapter and suddenly realise ten chapters on I still have a thread connected to what I've taken out - Yikes!
