I have my first writing job!
It seems the Voodoo curse that has been on me for the last couple of weeks has been lifted! I call it a curse because it is the only reason that I ripped my school shoes open, broke a £200 chair at home, walked into a glass door twice, failed to push a big bin and ended up falling over it because the brakes were on, tearing down my gran's blinds and breaking her freezer door and front room light switch. So It is a curse or I am just really unlucky...
Anyway my luck has now changed. I went to Alexander Palace today for a model train show (Its a hobby of mine) and I met the head writer of the magazine they produce. It lands on my doormat once a month and contains recent information about the members, the shows around the country or a certain locomotive or rolling stock that has been brought. The magazine is called the HRCA (Hornby railway collectors association) and it is all about train sets from the 1950's. I collect three rail locomotives and stock so if you have any sitting in your attic and you don't want them anymore please whisper to me because I would be very eager to collect them. I've been asked to review some of the local shows in the magazine! It is a non paying job but it is a way to be recognised in the world. My article will be the magazine issued the month after the event.
That's made my day.
