It’s finally beginning

Recently, as some of you may have read in Week 15: The good, the bad and the unexpected, I was offered a job. For six weeks. As a temporary marketing assistant at Orion. There I was making a show card for an author event when I was interrupted. A girl came into the small meeting […]

Week 15: The good, the bad and the unexpected

Monday:  The Good Getting an email from Walker books recommending me for a publishing job. I was touched that they thought of and remembered me. Establishing connections. The Bad Crying on the train at said email. I’m an emotional being. The Unexpected The email from Walker. Is that cheating? Tuesday:  The Good Being asked to […]

Tomorrow I shall be: Rebecca, The Intern

So tomorrow is the big day. The day that my internship at Little Tiger Press begins. Excited is not the word. I am ecstatic at the prospect of getting up with the world and exercising my brain for the day. Well, for a fortnight actually. Just to feel tired will be such a welcome feeling. […]

A publisher calls

I hope that when I begin to type this, my phone rings. I hope I am interrupted by the shrill, alarming vibrations of my decrepid iPhone. I hope she rings me soon, she is 11 minutes late; 11 minutes over our specified time. I should’ve just answered the questions at 11:11 am, when she first […]
