I love writing, and spend a lot of my time trying to improve it. Many years ago, in another life, I used to write a lot. Mainly about football, I loved writing for football fanzines.
Recently I wondered if I could still do it – write and get published in a magazine. My writing these days is mainly concerned with my family history, so I decided to pick on one story from my family’s past and pitch it to a Family Tree magazine. I tried ‘Your Family Tree’: http://www.yourfamilytreemag.co.uk/
As luck would have it, they snapped it up, and it was published this week. I was so excited going to the shop, buying it, bringing it home and flicking through it to see what it looked like on the page!
I like it. Here it is: what do you think?
