Today I’d like to update you on one of the short stories I’ve had published recently in My Weekly, a magazine published here in the UK. My main work in progress has been all-consuming, although I did manage to find time to write some short stories. Back copies of My Weekly are available on Pressreader and you can read about Furbag the cat-sleuth there via this link, here. If you enjoy reading about the residents of Mulberry Drive I have a further story about Maggie, teller of tall tales, whose fabulous story might not be as outrageous as our hero, Josh, thinks. If you’d like a copy do let me know and I’ll add your name to the mailing.

For all you writers out there, I wrote a post about increasing your chances of getting a novel published via the magazine market before, which you can read about here.

Also I’d like to thank all those readers who liked yesterday’s post and followed the link to my online children’s story, and for your lovely comments. It means a lot to me.

Best wishes, Jill x

Hi, I’m Jill, a writer and teacher living in the UK, usually behind a desk but sometimes on a sofa with a book or a film. I began writing at around age three, legibly by five, although I didn’t write any stories until I was older. Aged eleven, I began writing children’s fiction, mostly middle-grade fantasy and I’m still doing it to this day. I have had stories published online and in My Weekly magazine. The best bit about writing is when ideas pop into your head (from the writing fairy presumably?) and everything starts clipping together like a jigsaw puzzle. The worst bit? When you start to get the feeling there's a piece missing from the box...

    1. You’ve made my morning, Elaine! I wasn’t sure anyone would read my story when I posted the link, so I’m so pleased you did x Furbag was based on my neighbour’s cat, who often greets us on our doorstep the same way Furbag does with Josh. My mum always claimed super-feline intelligence in her cats, and I’ve no doubt her claims fed into the story. Then again, cats do seem eerily smart sometimes, don’t you think?
