Thinking of the 'C' word

Hate to mention the 'C' word but the big day is closer than you'd like to think. Already I've seen cards, trees and wrapping paper in the shops and that's before the kids have gone back to school!

Any short story submissions to the womags should've been posted/emailed off in August as they work up to 3 months in advance. I sent two off yesterday because I edited them to suit the winter period and thought better to send on the off-chance than have them languish for another year on my hard-drive. I got an automated reply for one of them and a short 'Thanks for the sub' for the other so I know they arrived safely.

Talking of Christmas, while I was doing some research for my story, I came across this website Called The Literary Gift Company, they have some lovely little gifts to suit your literary friends or relatives. Love this mug. I may buy it for myself. Though maybe it should read 'Go Away I'm Writing'!

Hi Sue. I actually submitted one of my Christmas stories in June this year! - knowing how long some of the magazines are taking to make decisions. And I haven't heard yet ...

However, I had one accepted by P.Friend in January! I sent it last August, presumed by December that it was too late, but they accepted it on 6 Jan and I assume they're going to use it this Christmas!

Good luck with your stories.
