The miss first - my 100 word story didn't make the final 3 in the Radio 4 Front Row World Book Day comp despite my writing group thinking it stood a v good chance. There were thousands of entries apparently so I don't feel too despondent. Anyone know somewhere good where I can sub a 100 word dark, literary flash?
The hit - I found out yesterday that one of my stories has been shortlisted by a very well respected, high paying ezine for one of their themed issues. Won't find out if the story makes it to the final publication for a good month or so but this is the first time one of the stories I've subbed there has made it to the shortlisting stage so I'm pretty chuffed (will be even more chuffed if it actually gets published!)
