One step closer

A few weeks ago I wrote about wanting to get my poems & stories published. Some thing I've always wanted to do and until now haven't had the know how. What with all the lovely comments left on my blog, this got me thinking. So.... I decided enough was enough. It was time to actually do some thing about it. Spiky put me in touch with a three ladies who have done just that.... had their books published and know all there is to know about the lengthy process of book publishing. Any way to cut a long story short, I managed to get in contact with them, asked lots of questions, told them what I wanted to achieve. One of them lives in this country....... ! So I got on to the Internet ( ain't technology brilliant?) I found out that she lives a lot closer than I first thought; this furthering my appetite for fame... well not quite but I'm one step closer to achieving my goal than I was last week. Not wanting to name any name's just yet.. I'm hoping to meet up with her and discuss what and how I go about finding an editor... publisher etc, and she's wanting to help me in every way possible, which is lovely. I have come to realise that 'nothing great was achieved without enthusiasm,' as it so baldy states on the back of my 'London Marathon medal' and I can tell you I have an abundance of enthusiasm. So fingers still crossed, I won't get too excited just yet, I still have a long journey ahead of me but now I have three new friends to help me along the way! So I'd like to thank every one who's left these fabulous comments on my blog, these are the kind of comments that make me realise I have a talent in writing, I can achieve my goals, however long it takes me. Who help me to believe in myself, that spur me on. I'd also like to thank Spiky for putting me in touch with these very talented writers...' Thank you,' hun... I appreciate it 100%!

Jackie ~ Yes it is rather exciting, some times a bit daunting, but all new journeys have different roads to follow, and after a while we get used to a new and exciting direction, in anything we do in life... thank you.
