I'm happy to say that I've just sold a story to My Weekly magazine.
I've previously had a bit of story-selling success with The Weekly News, but this is the first magazine I've sold a story to. As soon as I got the e mail yesterday, I wrote another! Needs tweaking and all that, but I'll be sending that one soon, and hoping for a second hit. It all counts and it really fires me up, having some small success. Makes me want to keep on writing those stories. Short stories are brilliant for making you tighten up your story, with beginning, middle and end. Good practise for me now that my sights are set on radio or tv drama, or maybe even theatre.
