I’ve Cracked It!

*drum roll* I have my name in print!!!!!!! *takes a bow* ๐Ÿ™‚

Ok, ok, I’m embellishing the truth a tiny little bit lol. It’s not that brilliant lol, but, I can now say that I am officially, published *snigger*

Remember my tips for coming up with character names? No? Ok, it’s here, The Naming Game I decided to send one of the tips off to the Writers Forum Magazine and they only went and published it lol. They’ve called it “New Faces” lol

Soooo, this month I have a letter in their “Writers Circle” section. The really funny thing is though, is that my writing tutor at The Write Place, Elaine, also has a letter in the same section of the same issue lol.

I’m not gunna let fame go to my head, it won’t change me ๐Ÿ™‚


It’s a great feeling, having your name in print for the first time ever and I know that some of you who read my blog have had stories and even books published, but, for me, this is huge lol. Perhaps one day I’ll become blasรฉ, but at the moment, let me revel ๐Ÿ˜‰

What’s the first thing you had published (ie your name in print). And if you haven’t had anything published, why not? *wags finger jokingly* ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve had a busy few days really. Went to my writing class Wednesday night and had to read out a story I’d written. It’s soooo nerve racking lol. But I did it, and got some good feedback. Then last night I went to the 2nd session of Peter Jones How to Do Everything and Be Happy workshop, which was great fun ๐Ÿ™‚

I didn’t manage to get the saxophone prompt done, in fact, I was so busy I didn’t do any writing at all *shock horror gasp* and I don’t even know what tomorrows prompt is because I’m sitting in bed writing this lol. I’ll make up for it tomorrow of course ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Wow, congratulations!

    I got three chapters of a story I put online printed by a free sci-fi zine in Toronto, many years back. That actually happened as a crazy thing out of the blue, they found me, it wasn’t something that I submitted to them.


  2. Congratulations and keep up the momentum. I had my first story published just recently too and not only was it exciting, it was a huge relief as well as a confidence booster. I have another story (this one 50 words – go figure!) coming out this spring.


  3. Congrats! I’ve been in jewellery magazines a few times now and got myself on a front cover a couple of months ago which was amazing.

    Well done indeed!
