A minor success!

A few weeks ago, I received a card saying that my entry for a short story competition had been highly commended and had been included in a published anthology. I'd forgotten about that but then this last week, I received my copy of the anthology and there it was, my short story on the printed page. What's more the secretary of the competition had sent me a letter and making an amusing reference which led me to understand that she had read the story and that it had some resonance with her. I found that as encouraging as having the story published.

I've been very lax about blogging of late but we have been busy decorating before Christmas and I am finding it hard to be motivated at the moment. I will take up my pen after Christmas - promise!
