Fab at 50
I am as pleased as punch to say that I have passed the halfway point in my goal to sell 100 stories by the end of 2014 and sold 50. In fact since writing this, I have sold two more making it 52 (hey, that's my age!)
It feels like a big milestone and I'm very grateful to Fiction Feast, Woman's Weekly and especially The People's Friend for liking my stories - I have been very fortunate, I know.
This leads me on to sharing with you a link to Amanda Brittany's Blog post How Many Womag Writers are There? Mandy wrote this post three years ago (before I'd ever though of being a writer) and it contains a list of most of the Womag writers with stars to denote how many stories they have sold and links to their sites. I find it really interesting and great for stalking (I mean finding out about) other writers.
I remember coming across this post when I had just started sending stories to the magazines at the end of 2012 and wishing I could be on the list. This is why I'm thrilled to be able to ask Mandy for my fourth star now and my goal is to get a fifth by the end of the year (although I don't think this is very likely).
I'd recommend any aspiring Womag writers to take a look at Mandy's post as it's really interesting.
Now I'd better get back to writing my next story.
