I had a great start to the day, I opened an email to find that my Stardust the Racehorse story is the story of the week on Alfie dog short story downloads website. Now this made me so happy, and I hope you all download and read about Stardust.
Hope you enjoy the story.
My latest writing magazine is here, and lovely to read my favorite authors. Lynne, how could you leave your romantic heroine on a tombstone for 30 years? Could be a Gothic horror now, she’d be a bit worn around the edges, not to mention frizzled up. And Lorraine, how much did you say you earn again!!!! I’m almost a millionaire myself, just need to sell a few more short stories don’t you know. (Hysterical laughter)
Wendy, I agree that blogging is a two way thing. I first started blogging a few years ago, and followed blogs. Then Patsy was my first follower, and I was over the moon. Now I have lots of followers, and I do follow some blogs, but when people’s blogs I follow, don’t bother to follow me back or comment, I tend to drift off.
My day started with that great news, then got to work, and remember last post, I said I was in a different department? It was sales. Now, I’d call myself a super-saleswoman, because I am, that’s a fact. But when you’re selling something, or trying to sell something that nobody wants, you become a non super sales woman. So, the sales idea was the way forward, as today I heard, the company are collapsing, going in to liquidation, and I am now redundant!! So, nothing I’ve done, I enjoyed the job, but didn’t enjoy cold calling nice elderly people trying to sell something that you can get for free if you’re half with it….
I had a lovely h.r. lady, remember the one who I rang by mistake when I started, and thought she was my son and left her a message saying ‘I love you’ Oh, how embarrassing; she will also be jobless, and has a little daughter. Same goes for all the other smashing young people I got to know in the short time I was there. Still, it will go on the C.V. and now I’m job searching again. Perhaps my writing career will spin off into a full time job… Well, I have story of the week on Alfie, so who knows where that may lead.
