Finally, my name in Mslexia, plus a WriteInvite comeback....

There's something very exciting about opening your favourite writing magazine, Mslexia, and seeing an advert for a book which includes your writing on the inside of the front cover. Sometimes I feel like an actual proper writer. For about 30 seconds. Then the feeling passes.

Over the Summer I had a long break from my weekly fix of WriteInvite competitions. I didn't mean for it to be such a long break, but as the weeks went by I lost my confidence, and kept finding reasons not to enter. Finally, the Saturday before last, I forced myself to have a go. Not sure how I managed it, but I won, with 72% of the vote. You can read my winning story here. That's all the writing news I have, for now.
