OMG – I made the long list

Some of you know I like to write – occasionally what I write gets turned into short stories – and even more occasionally I might actually share them!

Recently I made a resolution to start to enter my stories into some competitions.

And today – in this most dismal of days – I got a notification that I have been long listed for the International Bath Short Story Award 2016.  This means my story is one of 64 from 1439 entries!!!

I can’t tell you which story as you have to wait until they announce the short list – but it’s a quirky little story that I loved and I am just pleased that someone else loves it too.

It is such an honour to make this long list – words might (for once) actually fail me.

The email was addressed to Dear Writer – that’s me…  I’m a writer.
