I’ve submitted a story a wrote a good few years ago to the Mumsnet and Walkers competition this year.
I had sent the story to a couple of publishers back when I wrote it, but don’t have the confidence or persistence to keep trying.
Do when I saw the competition I thought I’d give it a go.
I had to edit the story down significantly as the word limit is 1,500 but I managed it without the story losing too much of what I actually like about it!
Reading the terms and conditions did make me pause for thought. If it wins, I give up all rights to it. To my own story… My baby… I really mulled this over for a bit. But then, I reasoned, better to do that than leave it languishing on my laptop for another three years. So I’ve entered the competition.
Wish me luck! I would love to see my story in print.
If you want to enter there is still time. Just. Closing date is tomorrow, the 6th of January 2014.
