Just got back from a week’s holiday in the Harz mountains of Germany to find that microhorror.com accepted and published my flash fiction ‘Love is…’ The site is well worth checking out if you like flash fiction and horror stories. Big thanks to Laura Eno for making me aware of the site. 

This acceptance comes hot on the heels of my winning 2nd prize in the Winchester Writers Conference Short Story Competition. The list of winners can be seen here, though the page erroneously lists my story as written by David Powell. Thankfully the limited edition pottery trophy I received last week has the correct name upon it. Here’s hoping they update the page with a correction sometime soon.

As for what’s next, the closing date for the miniWORDS 2009 Writing Competition is this coming Monday, 10th August. If you have a 50 word flash fiction knocking about it’s worth entering it on the competition webpage. I’ll be putting the finishing touches to mine, along with commenting on the #fridayflash posts from last week and this week that I have missed due to being afk up a mountain.
