NO SOONER THE WORD THAN THE FICTION

Woo Tiddley Hoo!

Here’s a tip that I offer for free. If you’re getting twitchy about rejections, competition failures and the like, write a maudlin blog post about all the bad things that have happened lately and how no-one likes your stuff any more. Within 24 hours you will receive an e-mail telling you that you’ve won one of the prizes in a competition. It’s not guaranteed of course, but it’s certainly worth a try.

After all, it just worked for me. More in due course …

    The truly weird thing is that I’m sure this is the second time something like this has happened.

  3. Clearly pessimism is good for you.

    Apparently so. Although it would be nice to jump straight to the Woo Hoo bit sometimes.
