Lost for words


I was surprised, but very pleased, when my story 'Forever' was longlisted for the

I was amazed and delighted when it appeared in the shortlist.

But when I heard it had been awarded 1st prize – that’s right, it WON – I couldn’t think how to describe my feelings. At least, not in plain English words that made any sense.

When I come back down to earth I’ll have a good look through my thesaurus.

Until then ...

                           Whoo-hoo!
 Wowzoozle!
 Wha-hay!

Many congratulations, Linda. I'm the runner-up for this competition and delighted that the winner is someone I 'know'! I've been away, so apologies for the delay in congratulating you. I've only today announced this success on my blog and I've also downloaded your story this evening. I'm looking forward to settling down to read your story!
