oh blogger

why you so slow? Anyone else having Blogger Bother?

Anyway -

more and more people are finding me by Googling Bridport related stuff so I just want to send a massive wave of positivity to everyone sat at their computers desperately finishing a story ready to submit by midnight tomorrow (Weds), everyone who's reading over the story they thought last week was HOT and now it just reads cold cold cold... to everyone who wants and needs a break - just go for it, send your best story, and let it go and do its thing.

Nicola Morgan wrote a great post on luck today - and the word that really stands out in there for being ultra useful is persevere - I entered Bridport 3 times before I won a prize, and I've been rejected/not made it in loads of prizes before and since. You just have to do it, keep doing it, keep learning, keep writing.

I have also been having some problems with Blogger being slow lately, and can only hope it'll get better soon.

Thanks for the link!

I'm glad I'm not the only one! I just found your blog over at Sandy Shin's blog and thought I'd stop by!

Thank for the link, I love a good post on luck!

Hey Sandy, ah good, not just me then. It seems better now.

Hello Jen, thanks for stopping in and saying hi. Hope you find the link useful too. The whole blog is good actually (Nicola Morgan's), she's very prolific as a publisher of both books and blogs. It's always useful to stop by there.
