Hey, Everyone, you’re not going to believe this but I’ve actually got some good news.
I entered a writing competition a few weeks ago and I got Highly Commended.
It was the Eureka Street Reader’s Feast Awards based in Victoria. I had to write an essay about life 20 years in the future. I rambled a bit (you know me) and there was the possibility I hadn’t written a proper essay – more like a story – and I actually thought when I sent it in that they might not consider it because it was more fiction-like than essay-like, but they really liked it. And it’s going to be published on their website. And I’m even getting paid for it. Well, blow me down.
You can see my name in lights here under the Eureka St/ Reader’s Feast Awards.
I think the
story essay is going to be up on the site next week. I’ll let you know when.
I want to thank all of you for your constant support with my writing but I also want to say to my fellow writers – DON’T STOP SUBMITTING – you just never know when something’s going to be accepted.
And it’s a great feeling when it is.
