Pssst....


Oh my ears and whiskers! Guess what? I’m only seeing out 2009 with a wee clink of champagne glasses!

Because ... well ... the LOVELY agent I posted my first three chapters to last week -only wants to see the rest of my novel! Oh yes indeed! How blinking marvellous is that?

I’m in shock quite frankly. Delighted, of course... but I know I have to slap myself down pretty quickly as I still have a VERY, VERY LONG way to go, and frankly the road before me may be paved with disappointment. But YAY I’m heading in the right direction, YES?

HAPPY 2010 ONE AND ALL!

Becky said...

Hi Amanda ,
TF sent me your way. It's so inspiring to see what is happening with your writing. I saw that you had studied creative writing and lit. I'm hoping to enrol back on a creative writing course as soon as the college opens again after the freeze. I really enjoyed the last one, and sharing homework projects each week in the class. Can't beat it :-)

Amanda said...

Hi Becky, great to see you here!
Yes, I studied with the OU - it's a fab course and helped no end with my writing. I have to say though, the support from other writers is priceless! :-))
