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!

A pink party is a great idea. I have one of those 0 birthdays in a couple of years so I might borrow the idead - if you don't mind.

It went really well, Colette - we had pink sweets and everything! So, yes do feel free to borrow my idea :)
