It's the perfect excuse. I get to sit on the sofa drinking coffee while perusing a variety of lovely magazines and it's all in the name of research! It's amazing what you can learn about the types of features and articles the magazine editors want simply by reading from cover to cover the magazine they edit. I've already been inspired and have come up with several ideas I'm going to pitch to the editors next week.
It's raining outside, my new writing room is finished and I'm all set up in there. What could be better? Well, a publishing deal would be great thank you very much, but until that happens (if it happens,) I'm content on working hard towards my writing goals and having a lot of fun on the way. I'm not sure where my new found confidence and renewed energy has come from: turning 40? A couple of events that have happened to me over the last week that have opened my eyes and made me change direction? The Spring air? I don't know. But I'm determined to utilise my increased enthusiasm while it lasts. Make hay while the sun shines as they say.
I hope you're busy making hay too.
