    Just spotted this – well done both @elle and @hilary! How was the launch? I’ve only read out to my writing group, so you are very brave!

    The launch was great, thanks! I enjoyed the reading – luckily I went first, so could then relax. It was great to meet some of the other writers too.
    I love meeting other writers…
    We need to have a Den get together… In RL, I mean.

    I got long listed in the Crowvus Publishing Christmas ghost story comp. No publication but at least I know I’ve now got a half decent tale in the bag. And since mine’s wasn’t especially Christmassy, I’ve got an in for any spooky comps that crop up!

    If this link works – I will be amazed at myself.

    Oh well done, Stevie! That is super news. And good point about still being able to submit elsewhere too! Here’s to a double whammy.

    Well done Elle. I’m impressed with all these publications. I still haven’t had one since my first nearly four years ago, despite a concerted effort recently. I did have a very kind rejection from Barren Magazine recently, which still counts as ‘a miss is as good as a mile’.

    Thanks @@daedalus. In all honesty for every publication there are about a dozen rejections as well. It’s kind of a number’s game. People who run Barren Magazine are just great, so thoughtful of writers. Who knows 2019 might be the year for you.

    Hope so @elle! In truth the numbers game is a problem for me, as I struggle to write enough to get the hit rate. Will keep trying though. The Barren editors are lovely, they gave me the nicest rejection ever 🤣
