Further delays

Unfortunately, the November Positive Words magazine is still not ready but I have been assured it will be available for pick up on Monday and I will post them all out . . . 🙂

Thanks for your patience and kind emails.

My NaNoWriMo novel is still going well and I’ve now passed the 30,000 word mark. If I can keep this up I’ll reach the target several days early and maybe even keep going and finish the story (I’m sure it will have a bit to go after 50,000 words)

I’m thoroughly enjoying it. How are your novels going?

Magazine running late :(

Apologies to all waiting and checking their mailboxes for the latest issue of Positive Words magazine.

There has been a delay at the printer’s but I’m hoping to pick them up tomorrow and have them all posted out asap 🙂

As I wait for the call to go and collect them, I’ve been busy with my NaNoWriMo novel. It’s going well, the best since I started doing the November challenge in 2012. I’m ahead of target, past the halfway mark and the ideas are still flowing 🙂

26,502 words 🙂

Are you doing the challenge? How are you going?

Writer’s cramp?

My fingers have been busy typing my effort for this year’s NaNoWriMo challenge.

Writer’s cramp or typer’s cramp? Either way I’m happy with my efforts and I’m ahead of the target with 8962 words 🙂 and the ideas are still flowing.

Are you doing the challenge this year? How are you going?

Thank you everyone for the much appreciated support 🙂

End-of-Year Competition

I’ve had a few emails asking if there is a theme for the Positive Words End-of-Year Short Story & Poetry Competition.

No…there is no theme for this competition 🙂 Let your imagination run wild 🙂

Others have asked if it’s ok to send more entries…YES, as many as you like! If there isn’t enough space on the entry form use a second one, put the details on the back or use a cover sheet. All are accepted 🙂

And. . . font, print, spacing etc. Use your favourite, there are no rules. Double or 1.5 spacing makes for easier reading for judges but also uses more paper so if you prefer single spacing, that’s fine!

Please ask if there is anything else you would like to know 🙂

And . . . thank you very much for supporting the competition. Every entry helps to keep Positive Words magazine and a great opportunity for publication alive.
