And the Winner is…Me

27 Apr

It is a wonderful feeling to get an email with some good news, and here it is – another win in the Creative Writing Ink monthly short story competition. Read it here.

It was actually a story which I had written ages ago, and was sitting in a submissions pile for an anthology for about 18 months. I finally lost hope about hearing anything else about this publication, so I submitted it to Creative Writing Ink. Then, wouldn’t you know it, the anthology folk got back in touch – they wanted to use it. I had to hold them off, and when I got the nod from CWI I had to withdraw the story all together. I don’t like having to let people down, but it was a nice problem to have with two people wanting the same story, and in the end it went to the highest bid – £10 vs £0. Anyway, go and have a wee read at Forget-me-not, and let me know what you think.
