LAND AHOY

Further to my post IT'S A BIG BOAT I just had to let you know after riding those rough seas of rejection and despite those low feelings that come with that, I sailed through with loads of persistence and determination and found that island of acceptance. Woo Hoo! I just found out I have had two stories accepted! Not only am I over the moon at having the short stories accepted (been a while for me between acceptances) but I have finally cracked the UK market - a first for me.

Sending good vibes to all you writers out there. Keep positive and arm yourself with that all important persistence and determination.

Keep writing....
