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.
