Did you know this week is National Crime Writing Week?!!? Oh yes it is! In the UK anyway!
Here is a link to 16 year old Claudia Hynde’s winning short story in the Young Crime Writer’s Competition! It’s suitably dark and a really good story too! Yay for her!
I only mention this because she’s young, she’s obviously creative and talented and she uses her local library – she had to, to know of the competition! So double yay for her!
I am using her triumph as my response to the current hullabaloo whipped up by a certain article about how kids can’t handle dark stuff in books. Theresa Milstein has a great post about it and all the links too.
Speaking of naughtiness!! My little bar of Thornton’s Dark Chocolate has the words “Unwrap me, eat me, love me” across the packet. I say, amen!
Charlie says: I bask in the light.
Peace and love to all!
