My not quite winning flash story!

I dashed off a flash story for a competition when I first started blogging, thanks to KateM.

I didn't win but it was nice that the competition holders mentioned my story and gave me a really nice and helpful critique.

The site will publish the short-listed entries here over the next few days or so, starting tomorrow.

Sorry, just me doing a blatant self-publicising thing. I'll be really glad for any feedback! Only if you want to of course.

LOL!

Let us know when the story posts. I'd love to see some of your writing. I'm immersed in critiquing manuscripts and repairing my manuscripts these days. Got any tape?

Congratulations! And do self-publicize away! I look forward to reading the story.

Kea said...

Remind us - I'd like to read the story, though can't offer any constructive criticism.

You might not have won, but congratulations are in order anyway, IMO!

Awww I used up all my tape trying to fix mine! LOL!

But I'm sure you don't need any! Oh no you don't!

Take care

Congratulations!!! I am looking forward to reading your story. A mention is recognition and that is a win in itself. You should be proud!

If you can't self-publicise on your own blog, then what is the world coming to?!

Will have a look - congrats on getting shortlisting!

Somehow my last comment was missing a verb! I shouldn't respond late at night. Looking forward to seeing the story in full.

Hi Katem

Don't worry!! I remember leaving a comment on KarenG's site. I meant to say "hear, hear!"

Instead I wrote, "Here, here".

:-)

Have you read the winning entry? Wasn't that good?

Wow.

Take care
