Last New Year's Eve I made two resolutions.

The first was to sell a piece of writing.

Today I've achieved that resolution, my article has been published here, on the BBC's disability website Ouch.

You'll have to wait until I achieve the second for me to admit what it is!

For anyone visiting this site for the first time as a result of the Ouch article, Hello! These are the posts I'd recommend you read:

A Question of Chance

Never Neverland

In the eye of the beholder

Hip Popping


Dear Samuel

I see your true colours

No special treatment-the practical response

The Job's fair, Part 1, 2 and 3

Page 18, Other Information


Phone a Friend

The great toy review

Mac An Cheez Plz

Bog Off

Some posts contain NSFW material, particularly Phone a Friend and The Great Toy Review


Huge congratulations on getting published in Ouch. It's a great article and the first of many, I hope.

Louise: Thank you :) Me too!

Better late than never BG. I am so proud and pleased for you. I agree I hope this is the first of many. You are a talented writer and deserve for more publications and accolades to recognise your talents. Lets hope nobody's clicking on my sad efforts when they pop in here - as unlike you I just write random crap when I can't sleep. lol Well done you you. Achelois xoxoxoxo

Awesome! Great article. And I'm "friending" you BTW...
