I just got 93% (highest honours) in a creative writing eisteddfod. I wrote a short story based on the novel I'm planning to write so it is a great confidence booster and helps me to believe in my story.

I've got two short stories coming out finally in an anthology compiled by a writing course I attended May - June last year. I will be interested to see how they have been 'Edited' as the community centre publisher has taken rather a long time to publish the anthology.

I have heard that one short story I put into an anthology produced by a writing group I left a year earlier has been published. Unfortunately I have not yet been able to see a copy as the group has not deposited a copy with the local library.

I've got a very short little item up in the 'Offbeat Writing' section of the Short Story Library website.  Something I wrote at the turn of the century and it's good to see it 'up in lights'.

Many congratulations to everyone who has posted, my day had a bit of a shaky start but threads like this cheer me up no end, it's lovely to see people achieving their dreams (I am so sorry that sounds very cheesey - perhaps I should do a voiceoever on reality TV!)

Anyway, the other thing that has cheered me up big time is that I have just opened Writing magazine and it calls my book 'an invaluable guide to improve your writing skills' - I nearly choked on my banana.

Quite a mental image, I'm sure.

Cheers.

well done to everyone on here,
Linda thats great news well done.
I have a much more modest success to write about but I am so pleased it has made my day. I have just recieved my first paycheck. It's only a small amount and is only from a readers letter but I am pleased anyway.  ;D

Firsts are always special.  Whether it's first ever, first for a new magazine, first in a new genre.  A first is about recognition as well as money.

Well done.

Take a photocopy for your files, even if you don't frame it.  Then, years from now, when you stumble across during a tidy-up, you'll sit there with an idiot grin on your face remembering it all over again.  Really.  I have a £10 cheque somewhere from the BBC which surfaces now and again.
