    Thanks @katemachon and @raine.

    I have no idea when the shortlist will be announced. I didn’t even know the longlist was out until I saw someone twitting about it! There are so many great and experienced writers on that list I’m really chuffed I made it that far.

    Thanks Philippa, Thea. Not much prospect of me progressing but I’m sure Elle is in with a chance.

    I know I’m incredibly talented, Daeds, I’m just pretending to be modest.

    I’m delighted, thrilled, stunned and generally, totally chuffed that my entry for our own Room with a View writing comp has been given a highly commended in the Michael Terrence short story comp. There is also a teasing mention of publication for a selection of the highly commended stories on the MTP webpage but no confirmation, as yet.

    MTP short story comp

    As if that wasn’t enough, a comic strip I scripted is being published in Futurequake, a small press comic of impecable credentials. 1 March is the date for my comic debut.

    This story (in its various drafts) got rejected eleven (11!!!) times before it finally found a home last month with Barren Magazine.

    Oh wow, what a story @philippaeast. Suspense and pacing tight as a drum, cool and utterly unnerving. Brilliant!

    A great reminder that if you keep on battering your head against that wall, sometimes it cracks! Congratulations Philippa. I’ll go and enjoy the read.
