This month's issue of Writing Magazine arrived in the post today, and I was shortlisted in the Tight Situation Short Story Competition!
I'm particularly pleased with this result, because the story I entered went through a development process I'm planning to cultivate more often in my writing this year. I worked on it in several stages, giving my subconscious crew plenty of time and space to come up with ideas. Then, I sent it to a couple of people for feedback, and revised the story further, based on their comments.
So, it's good to know the process works and makes my work more likely to succeed.
