Oh my word - talk about leaving it till the last minute - sketched out a plan for the story yesterday morning but only finally started the actual writing at about 8.30pm! Finished the first draft last night & then have spent today trying to edit it into something half readable! The closing date is Monday so I am just about to hot foot it to the Post Office to send it!
I am quite excited as at 2379 words, it's easily the longest thing I've ever written - I have paid the extra for a critique so will let my readers (all 2 of you!) know how I get on when I get that back. The winners are announced at the end of March so I suspect the critique will be back around then too - am not at all hopeful about any prize, but am quite pleased to have actually written to a deadline. Finally.
Well, better not speak to soon - have to rely on Royal Mail now so best dash right out now the printer has stopped it's spewing.
