If you're following Patsy's blog tour, she's here today. Tracy Fells blog. Anyone who follows my blog will know that I'm always trying fiction writing, though I have had more success with articles. I'm busy writing one up at the moment for The Great War magazine. The editor has given me the go ahead for it, but I'm still brushing it up, so will tell you more on that later. Also, I have an idea for an article that I'm typing up, and due to submit to a writing magazine.
My first article was in Take a Break. They wanted romance in the workplace, so I sent a few photos and a couple of pages. It was fab when the editor rang. I ran round the house jumping onto the settee. It's true to life stories that editors seem to like best from me. Thing is, this can have drawbacks. When I wanted to take a picture of my mother in law's neighbour in her garden recently, she hid her face and ran into the house shouting, "No, no, I haven't brushed my hair yet." My daughter said, 'that's because they know you as the lady who writes to magazines.' She probably thought she'd end up in Woman's Weekly. It had crossed my mind, so I can't blame her. Nice to know they have such faith in me!!
