We have a sale!

I knew it was only a matter of time but not THIS quickly.

A Story A Fortnight, the womag short story group I set up recently, has made it's first sale! Congrats to Maddie for selling the story she wrote to the first set of prompt (my prompts incidentally ;o)).

Here's to tons more sales - for Maddie and the rest of us. I'm sure it won't take long.

Now I'm off to walk the dog and, when I get back, I'm going to try and write a story to the 3rd set of prompts set by Tam. The stories have to be in on Tuesday and I don't even have a flicker of an idea yet!

OMG! I left a message for Maddie about her writing room and totally forgot about her fantastic sale. Better nip back or she'll think - rightly - than I am insanely jealous.

Quick question m'dear. When you put up your short stories do you write to the length of your prospective magazine? Just wondered because I have a little blog which is more about re writing and limited the amount of words that authors could put up and perhaps I shouldn't have? You would be more than welcome to join - would love to have you. Just say the word and I'll send over an invite but will understand if you decline. You are one busy writer!

I'm super-glad to hear it, Calistro. I want sales, dammit!

It's brilliant isn't it? I've got two stories out there at the moment, so I'm keeping everything crossed. Which isn't as easy as it sounds!!

Tam said...

It sounds deeply unattractive Karen but don't stop!

Yey to Maddie, and yey to you for setting the prompts (and starting the group on the first place!)

It's brilliant, isn't it? And I second that yay to Cal for setting up the blog. Its' certainly got me writing more than I was!

Quillers said...

It's wonderful news and has really given us a boost! Well done again, Maddie!

The whole group is working really hard and I'm sure Maddie's won't be the last hit.

Oh my goodness, how lovely! You're all talking about me over here and I hadn't realised.

I was really chuffed about the sale and I'm thrilled to be part of the SAF blog. Many thanks for all your hard work in setting it up, Cal.

Here's hoping there'll be plenty more sales to follow.

Well done, Maddie and the rest of you for all your hard work.

Well done Maddie and good luck Calistro coming up with a story by Tuesday. Sounds like a great idea. More power to your pens

Slightly late, but that's fab :)

Hope you got your story written Cal!
