Oh my God - it's gone now, I've sent it off - argh it feels so weird!! I've emailed off my article proposal to Red magazine. As I've said previously I completely expect it to be rejected, I mean what are the chances that anyone gets anything accepted on their first try? At least this realistic approach will help with the rejection lol.
I think I ended up writing a whole load of crap for the query letter as it's supposed to include information on other stuff you've had published etc, and obviously having none, I just had to igore that part. I did write on that I was currently enrolled on the WB course and I don't know whether that's a good thing, showing that I'm writing, or a bad thing, showing inexperience? Who knows, I'll just have to wait and see now. And just as I was writing this, I received a mail delivery notification from the email address I used, saying it had failed permanently :-( I got the email address off their website so that's not very good. I've now sent it again using a different one, so fingers crossed that gets there - if not, it'll have to go the old fashioned way - by snail mail! Hopefully not though, it just extends the waiting time!
I was supposed to be going out today for a wander over the water but James wasn't very well so we've had to postpone :-( Ah well, I suppose it's given me the opportunity to finally send my article off to Red.
Got the book club tomorrow at Waterstones. I really like the Monday's I go to the book club as I get to spend a nice couple of hours in Caffe Nero...mmmm...hot chocolate. I've also bought a couple of the more trashy magazines to have a read through that might help me get a couple of ideas for reader's letters or fillers, so I'll have a look through them in Caffe Nero :-) for Assignment 3.
Well so far so good, not had the second email returned, so it might have got there.
Hello and welcome to my Little Willow blog, well welcome to those who might stumble across it anyway as I have yet to give this address to anyone :) I thought I might try and see how I get along with just writing in it first. It's all a lot of random stuff, but hey, hopefully there'll be something interesting for people
