A Bit Of Good News!

Well, after posting last week about Write-Invite, I somehow managed to win again last week. You can read my winning entry here. I was quite pleased with my little story, although there a quite a lot of things I would have gone back and changed if I'd had more time. Still, who knows? It may yet grow up to be a much longer story.

I've also had two of my flash fiction stories accepted for inclusion in FlashFlood, an online flash fiction journal, the latest installment of which is due to appear on National Flash Fiction Day, Saturday 21st June.  Stories will be published online at regular intervals throughout the day. Mine are set to 'go live' at 6am and 3pm. The first one, Flying High, concerns a middle-aged man, his much younger girlfriend and a game show. The second, Mr Thoroughgood is about a married couple, an amorous postman and an imaginary dog. Submissions are being accepted until 23.59 on Thursday 19th June.

I have, at last, done a little bit of updating on my blog, creating a page for links to stories that have been published online, and another for links to 'paper' publications in which my work appears. And I have actually managed to do some new writing! This week I'm hoping to get my entries ready for Flash500 which closes on 30th June. I've been entering this every quarter for the last couple of years but, apart from once coming second, I've not had much luck. Still, it's a great competition with generous prize money and, importantly, they don't keep you waiting and waiting for results.

Fingers crossed, then, for a productive writing week!
