I have to say, I was quite excited just waiting for the results. I get like that each week that I enter Write Invite too - I can't wait for Wednesdays to see if I've been shortlisted. Does anyone recognise themselves in this scene from the Simpsons?

So why aren't I entering more competitions? I could have this wonderful feeling of anticipation a lot more frequently. So here goes, another new start is declared! With this lovely confidence boost fresh in my mind, I am going to really get stuck into the writing now. 10 hours a week minimum. I'm going to block it into my diary again like I do with the gym. Pah, the housework can wait. Or maybe I could spend my winnings on a cleaner!!
