Weird thing today. Woke up and realised we are almost at the end of June. How did that happen? I have had two weekend breaks, a holiday, a funeral - and news of a forthcoming new baby - in that time, had My Writer rejected (again), cranked up my online presence, had at least one Young Writer session, published three pieces on Wattpad (take a look) and still managed to fit in a full time job, several visits to family and keep on top of the washing. But I have not really had five minutes to sit down and do another blog post which is appalling!!!
Anyway, all that is changing as of now. Here I am at the Day Job, using my lunch break (not to go shopping for a change) to say hello to you. Yes - I have been very busy. Have not yet started my new book but a dozen or so poems have been born - and rediscovered - over the past few weeks and I have all kinds of irons in all kinds of fires. I flatly refuse to let the latest rejection deter me from envisioning a successful future for My Writer. Or the Yucketypoo books come to think of it. But I know I also need to move on and get stuck into something completely new - including making myself known to more editors. So I am open to commissions of all kinds - articles, features, special occasion stories or poems, ghost-writing, you name it, pretty much. So if you need a speaker for your writing group (as long as I can get there; I don't drive remember), a competition judge for the latest story/poetry writing competition (yes I have even done that), would like me to come and speak to your class about Creative Writing... just let me know. I won't let you down.
So that is about it for now. Lunch break is almost over. I have eaten my healthy lunch and, in about eight minutes, will be back to the grind.
Don't ever forget that if you do not believe in yourself, how can you expect other people to? Go out there. Make it happen.
