Last year wasn’t impressive on the competition front. I didn’t even receive many rejections – though that was largely due to concentrating on my novel.

This morning’s post brought another thumbs down, for my entry to Writer’s Forum Short Story Competition. HOWEVER, the story involved, Party Girl,  was at least placed on their shortlist, suggesting it had something going for it.  So – being a hopeful soul – I’m dusting it off and sending it to Mslexia for their current short story competition.

Despondent? Never!
