The overly obnoxious title wasn’t kidding (although I did want to attract as many of you social media fairies as possible).
You’ll never make it, they said. Writing is a difficult career to catch a break in, they said.
Lots of thank-yous to the excellent Sherri for the artwork, and for putting a Starbucks in the piece (this is relevant to nobody except me, as I had been to Starbucks the day I received the art and was feeling pleasantly pro-tax avoiding corporations after their nice service), and to The Story Shack itself, for not telling me my work is crap or ignoring me completely. Please let us know what you think of the collaboration, and give it lots of nice +1s and Twitter/Facey shares. Check out the other work on the site too while you’re there – Nail Varnish sits next to a piece about a gay goat herder in Jerusalem, which can only be a good omen.
It’s time to update my CV, methinks… How many UCAS points will I get for this?!
