First sale of 2013

I’ve decided to go to Leeds Writers Circle tonight as it’s the first meeting of 2013 (Carriageworks, Millennium Square, 7.30)
 I’ll have to leave at half eight as I don’t want to leave Leah for too long. I just took Leah for the world’s shortest walk. She got to the end of the drive and that was as far as she would go. She is eleven so I can’t really blame her for wanting to take it easy.
I put on 3lbs over Xmas, and have lost it already This regime of mini fasts really works. At least it does for me. Whenever I want to lose 1lb I spend a day limiting my intake to 500 calories, and abracadabra, the pound disappears.
I sent my January sub to My Weekly today plus one to The Weekly News (they’re taking forever to turn subs round at the moment)  and rewrote another story which I’m sending back to Fiction Feast.
I also sold my first story of 2013 – to Ireland’s Own. More to follow soon, I hope.


  1. Congratulations on selling your story. At least I have had no rejections this year!

  2. Congrats on selling to Ireland's Own Linda, fingers crossed it's one of many! Caroline x

  3. Congratulations, Linda! I just don't know how you manage to do all you do and still write so much and get published all the time!
