Brag warning.

I've been long listed in the Online Writing Tips short story competition! The results will be announced next week, so fingers are metaphorically crossed. Can't do it for real - I have stories to write.

Unconnected with that, one of my stories has been selected as an Editor's Choice with Alfie Dog Fiction. As well as goving me a warm fuzzy feeling, that also means it's available for thediscounted price of 25p for the next few days.

  1. Nothing wrong with blowing your own trumpet when it sounds a happy tune. Well done.

    1. They're a bit greener than they look in the photo, Hilary. A lovely contrast when I'm peeling an orange.

    1. Thanks, Beatrice. I'm pleased to have got this far, but obviously I'd be even more pleased to reach the short list.

    1. I did and there was something from another competition I'd entered ... only to say when the results would be out, but that's better than a list of the winners without my name on it.
