I’m busy editing and rewriting. My mind is always one step ahead of me, as my plans jump about from one story to the next. I’ve already sent off four submissions this year.

This year has begun with a bang! So many exciting projects already in the pipeline from last year. I’m looking forward to seeing my children’s story in print. Having kept a detailed record of everything I’ve send out, I’m able to look back at what is outstanding.

This morning I received an acceptance from Black Hare Press for my drabble ‘Coral Garden’. It’s my fourth one in their ‘Oceans’ collection and I have sent off my fifth one. If they accept it, it will be the first time I’ve had five in a collection.

I’ve been busy writing and editing an idea I have for my entry in the Waterloo London Arts Festival short story competition. I had a story selected last year and the year before. I want to make it three in a row, but who knows.

I’m half way through my second horror story. I’m finding it tough going. My idea is too big for a short story, so my plan is to get it down, and then edit it into shape.

I’m trying to get as much done as I can, because I sure my two writing projects will soon be sending edits back to me. I do hope there won’t be too much to do, but you never can tell.

Have a great week with your writing.

Happy writing ✍️

  1. Great to hear from you, Paula!! 2020 is starting off really well for you. Congratulations and here’s hearing more good news from you as the year progresses 🙂


  2. How inspiring your post is. Unfortunately, 2020 has started for me more as a whimper than a bang:-( Woke up on New Years Day with a bug which left me a bit feeble for a short while. Now my poor elderly dog is having problems and she kept me up most of the night last night. I have now seen the vet and she is on painkillers which may help. I’m doing a lot of thinking though, and I know what needs to be done – I just need to be fit enough to do it:-). Wishing you great things for 2020.


    1. I’m so sorry to hear that you’re having a tough time. I hope your dog feels much better soon. I hope 2020 brings you good health
