I've sent my first 2012 short story off to That's Life (fingers crossed). I have also submitted my new novel manuscript to Allen and Unwin who run 'Friday Pitch' where they accept unsolicited manuscripts, and my second novel manuscript I wrote to Pan Macmillan Australia who run Manuscript Monday. I have also managed to dig up some old short stories which haven't been anywhere in a while and submitted them. I've been in the mood to make things happen, so I thought, why not take advantage of the frame of mind I am in? I have another new short story which I am drafting and last night drafted out an article.

I can only hope I can maintain this momentum. My muse has been very obliging.... so far!

What have you been up to?

Keep writing...


  1. I've just sent something to That's Life too! And sent a novel somewhere and I'm working on a new story ...

    Hope we can both keep it up!

  2. Well done - and good luck with those submissions!

    My deadline is a whole 16 days away so I'm trying not to panic. :)

  3. Patsy - Good on you! Got my fingers crossed for you. I think if we stay focused, determined and believe in ourselves we can both keep it up! :-)

    Shirley - Thank you. Sending you good writing vibes. You can meet that deadline!

  4. Hello There - What an interesting and inspiring lady you are. I shall be following your blog with excitement from now on.

  5. That's a great start, Diane! Funnily enough, I've been feeling more inspired, organised and have sent things out already. Maybe something is in the air - on both sides of the world.

  6. Rae - Welcome! Thank you so much for your lovely comment.

    Rosemary - Something is definitely in the air, just hope it stays there! :-)

  7. Just discovered your blog and will be following with interest. Great interview with Teresa. Hope to catch a little bit of your muse with my own writing.

  8. Hello and welcome Maggie May. I was very happy to read your comment. Thanks for the following.
