The Milestone!

I am very proud to say that I graduated yesterday from Edge Hill University with a BA (Hons) Creative Writing and English. It was a really special and emotional experience that seemed to be over in the blink of an eye. Hopefully, it will be an experience that is repeated next year upon the completion of my MA Writing Studies, but I guess will have to just leave that up to the Gods of hard work, determination and fate for the time being.

Until the MA course begins I intend not to waste my time. I intend to be magnet for publication. Already I have spent many a spare moment browsing the internet and through recommendations of friends and fellow writers for suitable publications in which to showcase my work. Admittedly, my so-called "summer holiday" has seen a few rejections, and no acceptances might I add, but my enthusiasm has yet to wane. I can only see that as a good thing.

May my optimism continue!
