I didn’t win anything in a recent writing competition, nor was I ‘highly commended’ or even ‘commended’, but I did at least make the ‘shortlist’. I think they capped it at 100 entries, so making the top 25 isn’t too bad. I particularly like the third place entry.
Not much left in NaNoWriMo: the penultimate scene brought me to 49,650 words exactly. I was in Walsall this morning, but got back in time to write a fair chunk this afternoon, finishing off after the theatre this evening. Tomorrow is all about the ending, as well as a title! I wanted to call it Nutcrackers and Fireflies when I started, but that turned out to have nothing to do with anything, so perhaps not. Given that I have a fair idea what’s going to happen in the finale, the title might cause me the most problems tomorrow.
