Monday 10th October

I’m seriously worried by my lack of sale to Fiction Feast. I know my writing took a bit of a dip earlier this tear, but I’d hoped I was back on form. I will have to try harder. I managed another 1500 words on the book but didn’t get much else done today. Tomorrow is full of all kinds of distractions, including the local Good Neighbours AGM and lunch and the gardening club so I’ll have to try to squeeze in some writing time somewhere or another. Tonight I’ve been volunteered to take part in the quiz. I usually have the job of asking the questions which I enjoy. We’re playing the best team tonight so we’re not expected to win which does take the pressure off at least.
My mood has turned black again today. Probably not helped by the less than enthusiastic reception my offer to run a workshop received on Saturday.
In one of the talks, a woman listed the six things every writer needs, one of which was support. I wish she hadn’t said it because that’s definitely something I’m not getting enough of at the moment.
I tweaked a story for the People's Friend at the weekend and the fiction editor says it's OK now. Now I have to wait for it to be approved by the editor before I can call it a sale.

  1. Sorry to hear your mood had turned black again - hope that improves by the time you read this. I can relate to your worries about your sales to Fiction Feast, I've had my worries about sales to That's Life here in Australia. I was on a roll and really don't know what happened. On the up side I made two sales to the UK recently - my first sales overseas, so I was happy about that. Writing sure does test us, doesn't it? I guess Linda, we just got to keep on writing and keep on believing. Hope all works out with PF - I'm sure it will.
