This is an extra post this week just to say thank you. I launched my little blog only six weeks ago as a place to share my thoughts about writing and all that I’ve learned and am still learning about the process. Well, I’m at nearly six hundred views from countries all around the world and I am thrilled! In the huge world of the internet, 600 views may seem a small thing but to me it is a very big deal – 600 times that someone was interested enough to click on my words and read them. So whether you are family, friends or just dropped by to visit, thank you so much! I hope you continue to read along with me on my journey to Ambeth.
Also, a couple of little updates – a few people have mentioned they are having trouble following the blog – I am going to see if I can attach a widget to make it easier for you. And, I’ve had an agent ask for the full manuscript of my book, so I am waiting waiting waiting, sitting on my hands trying not to email them and see what they think! It is very exciting and, whether they choose to proceed with it or no, I am thrilled to have made it this far.
Updates to come and my regular post on Thursday as well. Happy days to you all! xx
That is absolutely amazing Helen! You did it! I now have the time to read all your blog posts…stay tuned for more comments!
Thanks so much Carrie – will keep you posted 🙂 xx lots of love xx
I found your blog via the WA website. I’m the one who wrote the slightly snippy response to the guy who asked “what is the point?” last week. He’s the type who should read your blog: tenacity and patience and a belief in what you are doing, and what you can do, are the important things – and this blog illustrates that you have them in spades. I shall keep my fingers crossed for you! Louise. PS So jealous, oh so very jealous of your meeting with Margaret Atwood! Have you ever identified yourself in one of her books????
Thanks so much for your lovely comment – it’s very much appreciated. I thought your response to the angry guy was great as well – it was strange how aggressive he became about the whole thing, certainly not what you expect on the WA website. I felt sorry for him, he was obviously a bitter individual and I thought you put him in his place very well. As for meeting Margaret Atwood – well, she did ask us both what we wanted to do once we’d finished school and I answered fashion journalist, because I knew I wanted to write. So my friend Mark, who was the other person at the interview with me, swears up and down that a girl who worked in fashion and wore unusual tights showed up in one of her subsequent books (I can’t remember which one) and he thinks it’s me – I’m not so sure but either way it was a marvellous experience!
