I had some lovely news when I got home today. One of my articles has been published in Practical Poultry Magazine.
It was such a lovely surprise as it was accepted way back in 2010 and I feared the worse, but on reaching home I had a lovely message on my answer phone from the owner of the Wernlas Collection for rare breed poultry. I had done a very enjoyable interview with him which featured some of the most unusual chickens I had ever seen.
To my delight he told me it was in and that he was very pleased with the result. He even informed me of another new publication that may take submissions, so I feel very positive about the year ahead and my writing activity.
It really did restore my confidence in my article writing again and to get out there and ask if I can do some interviews. That old saying is so true - 'If you don't ask, you don't get' I intend to do a bit more asking in 2011!
