writing her way home

My big boast …

Okay, here’s the thing.

At Balwyn Library we have a magazine called the Writing Magazine. It’s a British publication, and I read it avidly. It has articles on writing, short stories and competitions.

A few months ago, I entered one of these competitions. It’s called the Bristol Short Story Prize. This year in 2009, they had 1,729 entries from around the world – and my story has made the shortlist!

Yes, that’s right – and it’s quite a short list.

I am in the top twenty.

Top twenty – do you hear that.

I am very excited – and scared! It is one thing to sit in your office and dream about being a writer – but now it is actually happening. Yikes!

My story is called: Beyond the Blackout Curtain. It is going to be published in a British anthology – I even won fifty pounds.

I am going to post the link here so you can all smile with me.
