I've had some great news today (well two bits of great news!). The first was a phone call from Ask Jeeves informing me I had won a handbag worth £220! This is from one of the many competitions I enter. I enter them for fun in the hope I may win something I would otherwise have to go without in my current situation. I have been very lucky over time but enter less now to allow more time for writing. So it was a great surprise to find out I had won such a great prize!
There are not many things that could have topped this news but even better than that I had an email informing me my article 'How to twitter: the basics' has been accepted for publication on howto.co.uk. This came about after writing some notes for the writing buddies as it can be difficult to get to grips with. When I saw How to were looking for articles I decided to do a re-write and submit it to them. I am so pleased it has been accepted and it was just the boost I needed and was on about the other day.
Like I said the other day I was hoping to see at least one thing out of the number of article/pieces I have done over the past two months published and it is so satisfying to know this has happened. Just a shame I can't bottle this feeling up for everyday life. The article is not live on the website yet but when it is I will put the link here. With any luck it will lead to more articles published on the site at a later date.
