It's just I got my marks for the short story that I wrote aimed at women's magazines from my tutor and I'm so chuffed by it.
This is the part of his assessment that's made my night:
"This is a heartwarming and efficient story, Jennifer, in the way in which it supplies a back story and offers more than a gleam of hope at the end. One of your triumphs is your use of dialogue to establish character and push the plot forward. You give an effective thumbnail sketch of Angie but she really comes alive through what she says. This skill will appeal to any number of editors."
Awww. Well I'm happy.
Will it see the light of day in a mag somewhere? Probably not, but for now I can pat myself on the back and sleep better!
Charlie says: Ahem. I gets some of the royalties right?
Have a trimphant Thursday everyone!
