Had some great news in my inbox today – I was longlisted for the Fish Flash Fiction Prize! I know it’s a long way from being a winner (and it’s a very long long-list) but I’m chuffed to bits all the same. This was the very first piece of flash fiction I ever wrote, and I entered it without expecting any kind of recognition, so it means a lot to me. Congratulations to John Mulligan for winning both first and third prize, and to Mark Fiddes from England for coming second. I’m having a very long glass of Pinot to celebrate πŸ™‚
