The Day Came ...

edited July 2010 in - Writing Tales
... when I actually WON a WriteInvite competition! Yesterday, they announced it. And almost a year to the day since I last got shortlisted. Viv and Lou and SilentTony have already been there and done that, but it's my first time and since it's the only story I've entered for WriteInvite this year, I was very pleased to have flown the flag for TeamTB

  • [quote=Patricia Lesley]What prize did you win? [/quote]

  • Patricia Lesley - money. And very timely money too: I've just spent it on HKC3's vet bill, he's been a Very Sick Cat since last Wednesday. I thought I'd lost him on Saturday, but he's creeping back to life now. (That'll teach the little sod to eat HedgeRow Takeaways that have already been eaten and warmed up by some raptor or other)
    ANd I just sold yet another WriteInvite failure, this time to My Weekly.
    Try it, guys and gals, all your entries that don't make the grade with Rob might be expandable into paying-market stories
  • Blimey - well done, ceka! For Write Invite AND My Weekly!

    Hope HKC3's feeling a bit better today.
  • Congrats Ceka. As I've said all along, keep at it and eventually you'll get somewhere. :)

    I would have a go meself, but I don't have a paypal account. Yet.
  • oh Ceka, that's brilliant - congratulations.
  • Finally came back to this thread to read your story, Ceka and enjoyed it very much! So much in so few words - brilliant.
