As I mentioned all over the rest of DoW except, probably, the right place, I received an email this morning to confirm I have not only won Pennine Ink flash fiction comp 2018, but my other story was placed second. Can you believe it?
Anyway, as asked I have posted the link that contains the winning story below. I can’t believe it is the one that so closely resembles my current wip – perhaps I’ve found my niche 😉September 11, 2018 at 10:44 am #979JulesParticipant
This is brilliant, Janette. 1st and 2nd place. Grinning from ear to ear 😀September 11, 2018 at 10:44 am #980SandraParticipant
Just read it – told with your usual heart-warming warmth, salted, as always with human reality. Excellent.September 11, 2018 at 10:45 am #981DaedalusParticipant
Fantastic, Janette. Delighted for you. What a lot of power you’ve packed into a few words. Cracking bit of writing and a well deserved winner.
Any plans for the second-place piece?September 11, 2018 at 10:53 am #984JanetteParticipant
I’m going to go with the advice given and submit it to another comp, this time with its original title ‘The Grandmothers’. If it sounds familiar, it is because it was an old comp entry over on Cloud but which I polished up a little, this one set in a Celtic village (yes, rather like my other wip *blushes*). As I don’t want to compromise by publishing it, I’m reluctant to post it here, but will plonk it somewhere ‘private’ perhaps.September 11, 2018 at 11:11 am #989KazGParticipant
First AND second – that’s just amazing, Janette! I remember your story well – I loved it when I first read it, so deceptively simple yet powerful, without a hint of sentimentality. Just like this one. Very well deserved win, I’m SO happy for you 🙂

So, so pleased for you – to get placed once in a comp is awesome, but to be placed twice in the same one? Out of this world!
