Good News!

I've worked hard on my Creative Writing Course this past 18 months and successfully completed the first half of the course focusing on the non-fiction elements.  Finally I have reached the part I've longed to tackle all along.  Writing fiction.

Prior to Christmas I posted off my first completed fiction assignment and awaited the return of this with my tutor's comments.  This is the first time that I have allowed anyone to read any of my stories and to say I was nervous is an under-statement.  All I've wanted to do is write good stories and my worst nightmare would be to receive negative comments on my work.

There on my door mat when I returned from work was the dreaded envelope.  I anxiously read the first few lines and couldn't stop the grin from spreading across my face.  The comments I have received were amazing and my hard work that I put into this assignment have really paid off.

I can't wait to cracking on my next one and who knows, maybe I might now pluck up the courage to start submitting some of my stories.  


  1. Well done Jayne.

    I lost heart during the non fiction section (specifically the 'write to magazines, etc section) and bailed out before the fiction part.

    Good luck with it all.


  2. Congratulations, Jayne. I am sure you will go from strength to strength now that you are doing the part which really interests you. Keep up the good work!
