I received an Honorable (sic) Mention for my latest entry in the Writers of the Future competition. Each quarterly round of this competition attracts more than a thousand entries, so I'm told. Just how many more than a thousand no-one is saying, but I'm pleased to have been placed amongst the top 10% or so.
This is an anonymously judged competition so names don't count and work does, which is of course a proper challenge. I was quite fond of my story this time, though I spotted a continuity error after I had submitted it, so I think I should consider myself fortunate that it did so well.
On we go to the second quarter, for which my entry is already submitted. I have some thoughts about quarter three, but still a couple of months in which to organise them.
