There are a few letters to keep you going if some of yours are held up by the post strike. Wahey!
That was a text from a good friend. It made me smile.
And: I sold another short story. Yippee! To The Weekly News - it's the second one I've sold to them.
Also, my lovely mentor sent me some great feedback on chunk 6 of the book.
JJ's terrific post with inside info from the publishing industry is very useful, and made me smile - if a little ruefully in places.
Paolo Nutini's fab CD Sunny Side Up makes me smile every time I play it, especially when I remember that my Paramour gave it to me for services rendered. I particularly like the new single Pencil Full Of Lead (that link is to the lyrics; music version on YouTube here). My Paramour said it even made him feel happy when he was stuck in a traffic jam and that, from a man who does not do queuing or waiting, is a huge compliment.
All my lovely friends on my sidebar make me smile. Sometimes one of them makes me laugh out loud. Hilary is particularly good at this.
And I smile every time I remember that I'm going down south tomorrow for a weekend with some of my lovely blogfriends.
What has made you smile today?
