Keep track of what you send
I've been battling illnesses lately therefore it's taken me considerably longer to finish my short story for Woman's Weekly. Today it's finally finished and I'm looking forward to hearing back from them. Can't wait!
Still waiting to hear back from People's Friend on a short story I sent to them. As it can take a while to hear back from the magazine that you send stories and articles to, I recommend that you use an Excel document to keep track of what you send in, to whom and when. It can also be a good idea to write down how you sent it in: through post or e-mail and to which specific address or person you addressed it to. Try to be as specific as possible, you'll thank yourself for it later.
What are you working on? And, keep following your dreams!
