The title says it all — yet another of my letters published in the new edition of the TV Times. Unfortunately, on this occasion my submission was shortened and reworded, which I found a little dispiriting, especially because I don’t think it reads as well. (When I re-examined the original, it was a little wordy, but this was a deliberate ploy on my part to try and secure the Star Letter position — backfired, methinks. Serves me right for trying to be clever.) Still, at least my work’s in print again.
And for those of you who missed it, I had a guest spot on Charlie Britten’s blog, Write on, recently after she graciously asked me to offer some tips on how to get your letters accepted for publication. If you’re interested, you can read the post here.
One last thing … a reminder for those planning on entering Helen Yendall’s Random Word Competition on her Blog About Writing that the deadline is midnight tonight, so hurry up and get those entries in, if you haven’t already done so. It’s free, with a 100 word limit (excluding title) and has to include five specific words. I’ve already submitted mine, with a topical theme, and now keeping my fingers crossed that I’ve done enough to make the shortlist. Good luck to all those participating!
