Writing Encouragement

Now that my latest novel is out and everything is geared to getting ready for Christmas over the next couple of weeks, it’s a lovely bonus to see success in other parts of my writing. It also reminds me how much I enjoy the variety of shorter items in different genres, and I think this will always be my first creative love.

I’ve had many articles on Scottish history, people and places published in The Highlander magazine in the USA and I’m delighted that my latest one was published in the new issue  - the kind editor has also accepted another. The fact I get paid right away is another plus, compared to waiting to see if books sell for their royalties.

I’ve also started writing new short stories now and then and I’m so pleased to have an editor at The People’s Friend. He is passing on two of my stories for the next stage to be considered for publication. Can’t wait to see if and when they appear!

Another type of writing that I really enjoy is stories for children of different ages. I was delighted when online publication Smarty Pants published my Tin-Can-Man story in November. Now they’ve just published my little Fern’s First Winter story and I love the illustrations they provide!

So much encouragement to keep writing in whatever way inspires my imagination and creativity. When it also leads to payment, that’s even more incentive although, like most writers, I mainly want readers to enjoy my stories.

If you're interested in my collection of articles on Scotland people and Places, or any of my short story collections, you can find them on Amazon UK and Amazon US in e-book and paperback.

On with the Christmas preparations now!

I'm glad we don't have to stick with writing in just one form – we'd miss a lot whichever we picked.

Congratulations on your latest successes.

How Lemeridian funding service  grant me a loan!!!

Hello everyone, I'm Lea Paige Matteo from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to lemeridian funding service for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, I was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, I was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to Le_meridian funding service and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 48hrs just like my friend Lisa, I was also granted a loan of $216,000.00 So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 1.9% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact Le_meridian funding service. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, I'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.
