Thanks for the link, Emma - are you going to enter as well? I always say I will, but never get round to entering short story comps. Perhaps this is the start of actually submitting to them.

I didn't know about this one, so thanks for the link :) Perhaps I'll get an entry together if a bolt of inspiration strikes in the next couple of days.

No, sadly I just do not have the time to enter this one but it does look very good. Best of luck with it Tanya if you decide to enter
