I don’t know about you, but this time yesterday, the working wasn’t going well and I was ready to a) hurl my laptop across the room b) burst into tears or c) both. Thankfully today things have gone smoothly (so far) and I feel like I’m getting somewhere.
My market for your this week is for those of you who enjoy writing readers’ letters and for those of you who don’t realise what a great opportunity it can be:
The Sunday People:
This Sunday newspaper has a regular letters page, generally featuring around 15 letters. These all refer back to previous issues published in the paper. The letters are very short. The longest letter in a recent issue was 75 words long and the shortest only 25 words. The star letter pays £25 and all other letters pay £10.

Letters can be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
