Would you like to read something a little different to what I usually write? It’s a piece I entered in a competition.
Last year I had promised myself I’d enter more writing competitions for a couple of reasons. I hoped it would force me to finish fully the many stories I write and to pressure myself into putting my writing out there.
To date I’ve failed miserably, entering only three competitions in twelve months, two of which came to nothing. However I can now reveal the third story, a flash fiction piece of 300 words, got highly commended.
I am not in a position to publish my story here for another few weeks as a condition of entry but if you would like to read it here is the link. Just click ‘read story’. Mine is called ‘Hidden Treasure’ and is the second story down.
The competition was run by InkTears. My entry was inspired by this photo of a piece of glass a friend, Catherine Evans, put up in the Imagine, Write, Inspire writing group, as a prompt for a flash fiction challenge.
I also had to write a personal bio which was a whole new experience for me. It is featured here on the site under ‘Authors’ (which makes me smile). It’s in the Flash Fiction category if you scroll down.
I hope you enjoy it.
