Sweet Success for Members
The week started off well on Sunday when we had our on-line Writers Abroad meeting chaired by Jany who set an interesting writing exercise on characterisation - using the Easter Bunny for our inspiration! Although none of us have yet dared to share our thoughts, I'm sure we've had many ranging from the pure loony to the very dark and mysterious.
Then three of us were notified that we had been short-listed for the Flash Fiction 500 competition run by writer Lorraine Mace. Alyson, Jill and myself have been selected amongst twenty five for the next stage. All of these stories had been critiqued by Writers Abroad members.
Then today we end the week of just perfectly, with Nicola winning the Writelink 'Lighten the Dark' competition followed by Jill who came second!
Other recent member news includes Rob who has had a short story published in the latest Jam publication, Jany won a 'best in Germany' poem accolade and Lynne has had two queries accepted for Writing Magazine.
All in all not a bad success rate, so rock on Writers Abroad!
What a great end to what I had thought was a slow week. Also, don't forget to check out my latest article on Home-made Chutneys for Suite 101 and a book review on Louise Charles All He Ever Wanted by Anita Shreve.
