I put my sheep story together in a book form (with a cover and sewn signatures and everything) for a child. I loved looking at the story in this completed form, turning the pages and reading the story gave me such pleasure! I had to title the story in order to do this, which I’ve been resisting for a long time, but it was good to be forced to do it. I can change it in the future if I want to, but for now it’s called “Never Underestimate a Sheep that Dreams”. 2 weeks ago

I’ve got my sheep story edited to a point that I’m quite happy with. I like the ending much more now than ever before, and I’ve cut out a lot of unnecessary bits so the story reads cleanly. Thanks a lot to Rosewilder for her editing suggestions and encouragement!!
Now I’d like to see about publishing it. It’s too long for magazine publication. I’ve got an idea for self-publication that could work well I think – even if it doesn’t put much money in my pocket I’m fairly confident I would break even on it. But my first choice would be for a publishing company to fall in love with it and do all the work for me. So it’s time to write an email to my cousin’s partner – the person I know who knows the most about publishing. I’m a bit intimidated to do this, though I’m not sure why – she’s a lovely person and I think she’ll have a lot of positivity and good info to offer. 12 months ago
