I sent 5,00 words to Nexus and they published it in their newsfeed with the comment that that will not stop them running it in a few months.

OK, no money yet :( but hopefully the exposure will do me good.

Always look on the Bright Side.

Not sure about the next project. I know what I would like to write about but finding a paying market is proving a challenge. Inspiration will come and the magazines in the Writers and Artists Yearbook may yield something.

I guess that with time I will get an Idea and find a paying target popping into my head.

The paragraphing and new lines I put in vanished, Now suddenly they seem to be back. I will experiment in future posts

I branched off onto doing other things along with the course and got two certificates. One of which was for basic computer skills and another for typing. It helped me to speed things up for the course and I met new friends who helped me with basic soft ware.

Alice Vinten Writers Bureau's Student of the Year 2020

“All I knew when I joined up with The Writers Bureau is that I'd always wanted to write and never had the nerve to start. I've been an avid reader from an early age, and 'being a published writer' seemed like an unobtainable dream. The Writers Bureau opened my eyes to possibilities that I'd never considered before - writing for magazines, pitching for non-fiction books, and researching the writing industry. On the 18th April 2019, my memoir On the Line - Life and Death in the Metropolitan Police was published in paperback by Two Roads Books.”
