I did it!

Hello all my lovely friends and followers!

You may have noticed I haven’t blogged in a while (my bad!), but I have an excuse. I’ve been working hard to finish my course, and I did it – I’ve graduated and have my Certificate IV in Professional Writing and Editing!

I started this blog as a requirement of the course, but I’d love to continue with it. I plan to set up a website for myself, begin applying for freelance editing and writing jobs online, and also pitch my writing to magazines and papers. However, I need a break, so for now I’m going to celebrate graduating from my second course (I already have a degree in Information Technology), and leave you with a link to a story, The Mask which I wrote for my portfolio. Hope you like it.
