You must forgive me for some moderate boasting, but it seems I have been trudging through a writing desert recently. When I come across the occasional waterhole, please don’t blame me for wanting to linger in its shade and enjoy the view.
This week I had both a letter published and, much more importantly, a short story chosen to appear on a website.
1. A letter published
I had a letter published in Writing Magazine. Yes, it is only a letter, but it is my letter, written by me, and something the editor thinks other people might enjoy reading. This was the first time I had written into the magazine and I did so in response to another reader’s comments: describing how their characters had hijacked the novel and changed the story.
My letter describes my similar experience when I sat down to write The Reluctant Scribe.
It really is an honour to appear here, because the quality of the pieces selected by the Writer’s Hub editorial team is very high.
