Oh, OK I'll go on. You know what a flower petal is. You may have noticed that sometimes behind the petals there are little green things. Those are sepals (or the calyx).
Actually in some plants there are no petals, just sepals which look like petals but don't worry about that.
In other plants there are both petals and sepals but they all look like petals and it's impossible to tell petals from sepals. In this case all the pretty bits are called tepals to, you know, make things easier.
You probably want to get back to the writing after that. Here's somewhere looking for novels and novellas (thanks to Rachel for telling me about that one). And this site wants articles. I'm not sure they want to pay for them though.
Here's a crime writing competition. You'll have to pay postage, but otherwise entry is free. The prize is a weekend Bed and Breakfast at the Cremona Hotel, Bournemouth and £50 spending money.
Now please excuse me, I have a novel excerpt and synopsis to work on.
