Rebekah the Business Woman!

In a couple of days time I am attending a New Business Seminar run by New Zealand Trade and Enterprise in the hope of starting and running a successful publishing company.

Why am I doing this you may ask? Let's just say there have been no six figure advances offered for my book yet! However, I am a determined woman who is not going to let this stop me from publishing my travel memoir.

I know absolutely nothing about running a business, but ask my friends and they will tell you that I have the tenacity to achieve my dreams.

Entering my first ever writing competition - The Fish Short Story Competition

I have officially entered my first Short Story competition and I am hoping to travel to Ireland July next year to receive my prize - dreams are free.

Let's just say it was rather a stressful procedure. Although I was happy with the story I had a sleepless night after submitting it thanks to a misplaced apostrophe and the lack of a semi-colon!

Anyway it is all writing practice, after all it's not always about winning - yeah right!

Wish me luck regardless!
