Simply put. A filler until I can write a proper blog post on what I have been doing these past couple of months and just why I have not had the time to update my blog, not even a Sunday Circle.
I have been published since I last posted. A minor publication, but still the first, so a happy achievement. I was a finalist in the Newcastle Short Story Award, which was announced last Friday night. I didn’t win, but my story was included in the anthology.
Thanks to Angella Whitton for spotting the anthology in the Newcastle Writers Festival bookshop and providing evidence of my first publication. I suppose I should buy it now.
Congratulations to the winner, Alison Kelly, for her story ‘The Blink Response’. And with appreciation to the judges, Maria Takolander and Peter Goldsworthy.
