>Good news

>Okay, only 2 freelance acceptances so far this year (the day job is a writing/editing job, remember, and I’m working on longer material too), but I didn’t start sending them out until the end of January and even fillers have longer lead times these days.

The first success was The Magic of Wilderness, which came 3rd in a writing competition and was published in The Origin Psychic. I blogged about that one last month (I didn’t think it had been placed at all).

I just had an email to say a popular women’s weekly magazine is going to use the Barcelona article, which is ace as I wrote that one totally on spec. Once it’s been confirmed, I’ll list the magazine in the sidebar as it’s another new market for me.
