Who is entering/has entered the WAYB short story competition?
3

I enter every year with a new story and never win Grin

I like that now there is no specific theme although it took me a few weeks to come up with something I was interested in.

I have a Friday off work so have been using every Friday for the past few months to get something written. I'm just revising it again today and actually had a little weep. Usually, I write something lighthearted, but this time I've gone for something simple but very sad. It's basically just a character sitting somewhere and reflecting on her life and life choices. Sounds boring but I've really enjoyed writing it.

Once again, i'm likely not going to be selected, but I do enjoy the nudge the WAYB competition gives me to do some writing. Just wondering if anybody else is entering and how hopefuly you're feeling?

Great thanks! I did try googling it but didn't get anything sensible. I've never entered a competition and find short stories incredibly hard to write, but who knows, maybe a brilliant idea will suddenly occur to me!
