I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who read my Flash 500 piece and commented.
I have been given some amazing advice via here, text message and Twitter. A writer cannot move forward without feedback, so I appreciate all of your comments.
It was such a nerve-wracking thing to do, to put my piece up here for all to read. Plus, I have never written in first person before. My current novel is in third person, which I find so much easier. So, it was a learning curve just to try out writing in first, so thank you all for letting me know the little mistakes i made and also about me not showing enough and simply telling too much. I plan to enter another competition soon, once the WiP goes off to the NWS, so I shall put everything into practise and let you all know how I get on.
And also, I want to re-direct you to my Amazon page once again, but this time to read my review on The UnTied Kingdom by the lovely Kate Johnson. I absolutely loved this book. I read the MS last year, as a reader on the tasting panel for ChocLit, so I have been waiting for this to be released. I loved it then, and I still love it now. Yes, I know I have probably over-used the word ‘love’ but there are o other words for it – It was fantastic. Perfectly written. Kate is a very talented and skilful writer and I’m already looking forward to her next one…..
