I thought I’d take the bull by the horns and submit some of my stories and some poems for a couple of competitions. While there being considered, rules state they must not appear anywhere else, even a personal blog. I have removed a few pieces from here for a while.
I’m really not sure why I’ve done it. There’s probably more chance of me meeting Brad Pitt in the toilets in Subway, than having a shot at winning, but I thought what the hell. Plus empty pages should spur me on to keep writing, although jeans that don’t fit should spur me on with the diet, but they don’t!
Thank you so much for all the brilliant comments people had made on the posts, in fact it’s all your fault that they’ve gone. The Community Storyboard has been fantastic for letting me showcase my stuff. A great big fat thank you to you wonderful guys.
I’ve only been seriously updating the blog the last 4 weeks or so and have had a non-fiction piece being serialised in totally4women, two shorts being published in an Anthology coming out in September, being declared link of the week on the Dead Homer Society, had a story featured on http://tipsylit.com/ and one on Austen in August . So chuffed is a little understated.
Here’s to September being more of the same. Or else my names not Claudia Schiffer, oh hang on, what’s that you say? It’s not, Oh damn……………
