Longlist and a month to go

I was pleased to make  the long list for the National Flash Fiction Day anthology with my story ‘Kite’. Thanks to Valerie O’Riordan and Calum Kerr who were the judges for putting it through. I really like this story (as much as you can become attached to 275 words!) so I hope it makes the book. I originally wrote it as a 100 word story for another competition but was never quite happy with it but expanding it out has made a big improvement.

We’re now a month off the Day itself and I’m planning to be at the Oxford event in the evening. I’m really looking forward to meeting some of the people I’ve become friends with on Twitter in the last year. I’ve now written something new for the night which is the writing equivalent of buying a new suit for the evening! I’ve never read my work out in public so it’s going to be a bit weird. But it’s going to be even weirder for everyone else trying to understand my Bolton accent!
