Micro Memoir

As part of a writing festival at my local library in November, they're running a short story and poetry competition.  You don't have to be a resident to enter, just an Australian citizen, but they are offering extra prizes for local residents.

I stumbled across the information for the competition quite by chance as I was renewing my library books and thought it might be a good opportunity to see if I could actually finish a piece of writing for something that's not this blog.  

So for the last week I've been working on a little story inspired by the tales of my childhood and after having a lovely (and trusted) friend give me feedback, this afternoon I've finished it and entered it into the competition.  As an added bonus, the story forms a completed chapter for the book I've been toying with for the last two years.  Hopefully this will be inspiration to keep plugging away at that.

In any case, it's a good feeling to have finished a piece.

Let's see what happens.

Well, I didn't win, but the friend who gave me feedback decided she'd enter too and she was shortlisted for the story section and won the poetry section!
