I have just received in the post a preview copy of my latest short story for Woman’s Weekly. It’s called Stalking Giraffes – out in Nov 27th issue – and the lovely layout has lifted my spirits no end.
Trust me – they need lifting just now as this week I am liaising with my agent over the first rejection to the novel I have on submission. Oh gawd. It's early days but any rejection is so horrible, isn’t it? Methinks this will be the subject of a full post very soon!
Meantime, for those who fancy checking out Stalking Giraffes, I hope you enjoy it. It was a story which I loved writing as the inspiration came from a really touching moment. I was watching a man carrying a sleeping child. And then I watched another woman …watching the man carrying the sleeping child.
And before I knew it Stalking Giraffes kind of wrote itself.
