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?

Merry Christmas & A Happy New Year

Wishing you all a Wonderful Christmas and a Happy and Healthy 2010!

Molly loves the snow - but then she doesn't have to drive in it!

A special little girl visited me yesterday and left me a 'Snow Angel'.

Awh, I'm feeling all Christmassy already!

My Novel has Wings

Okay, so I lied. I’m back before Christmas. What am I like? But then I can’t be trusted anywhere near a Blogger link as you well know!

And the thing is, I wanted to tell you I’ve posted off my first three chapters, synopsis and covering letter to a real-life AGENT. Oh yes indeed! I took it down the post box, in an envelope and everything, folded it, and squished it into the red hole. I then spent the next three hours sticking my hand in the said post box trying to get it back. No I didn’t. Not really. But I did wonder if it was the right time (is there ever a right time?) And now I have three similar letters sitting next to me, all looking at me saying ‘post me now’ but I'm too chicken. I've lost my bottle, quite frankly.

In other news, my pink party was pink! I saw pink, wore pink,ate pink (the pink chocolate mice were the best) and drank pink! Good fun was had by all!

Slutligen, jag är spännande att kunna säga att jag har sålt en historia att Allas Magazine! YAY! - Which in English means 'I've sold a story to Allas Magazine' - Yay!

Congratulations Karen Clarke

I feel massively chuffed today. The very lovely, Karen Clarke has only been and gone and got herself an agent! Oh yes indeedy! I knew she would from the moment I started reading her blog over two years ago. She is one brilliant writer and deserves to be marching with her pants on her head (see her blog for details!)

Ooh and I’ve had a mini success of my own. I’ve had a pitch accepted by Writers’ Forum, and I'm now frantically writing it and praying I can live up to their expectations.

In other news, this Sunday I’m having a PINK party for my birthday that ends in ‘O’ (That’s all I’m saying – you can guess the other number – but please be kind!) It’s not officially my birthday until the following weekend – but I thought I’d get the party in before everyone gets all Christmased out - you know, like they do. So I'm all excited about that! YAY!

I'm also rather chuffed about the launch of Womag 2 Weekly (notice the variation in name - thanks Lily :-). We now have 8 keen members and it looks all set to be a fantastic group.

Anyway, that’s it in a nutshell! Have a great weekend one and all!
