I just have to tell somebody…

Today is a great day!

I have received my first commission!
Someone not only wants me to write some poems – they are willing to pay for them – that’s right – real money.
If you could see me now you may notice that I am ten feet tall and have a grin this wide – oh, you can’t see how wide – well, it’s bigger than big.

Agnes Meadows, star that she is, has won Arts Council funding for Loose Muse, London’s only showcase specifically for women writers, and one result is that she has asked me to contribute to the first Loose Muse anthology. This will be published in February 2012 ar a special event. Consequently, I have until 19th December ( a real deadline!), to write 5 poems on a theme of my choice.

Now…to work…
