How sweet it is

How sweet it is to get paid for one’s writing!

I received the cheque in the mail today for the prize winning poem I entered in a recent competition. Nice to be acknowledged in a competition – and get paid for it. It has inspired me to write more poems and stories and send them off to publishers. It has also spurred me on to get the many manuscripts of books ready for sending off too. I have a nice little collection of texts for picture books and novels for children just waiting for a final edit and a cover letter.

In addition to the cheque I also received a lovely certificate as the winning poet. Nice.

Good writing.
