Guest Post at Womagwriter's Blog
Just to let you know I am delighted to be guest posting over at Womagwriter's Blog today. Do pop over and join me. This week I celebrate the anniversary of writing my first magazine story and I am talking about my roller coaster journey since then.
Meanwhile, the roller coaster ride continues!
Having been ecstatic with my three sales last week, I was brought back down to earth with a bump three days later with five - YES FIVE- rejections all in one day. Two were by email and three plopped through my letterbox.
Mind you, it's not in my nature to dwell on adversity for too long so I decided to put a positive spin on it. After much scratching of my head (as I'm useless at maths) I realised that 3:5 acceptance to rejection ratio meant it was still a 37.5% success rate this week. If the rejections had come last week it would have been 100% failure!
I daren't work out the yearly percentage as the results would be too scary!
