What a year!!

Wow! A rollercoaster of emotions as I placed 15 submissions into this competition and then...the wait begins. Countdown to August - did I make any finalist...YES!!!

Stomach churning, crying uncontrollably with joy and pride, and then...Another long wait for the Longlist...Will I, won't I...YES!!!! and now for the next round...Can I be that good? Will they like my story...? YES!!! I made it to Shortlist and now I wait again for the winning ceremony. Stomach churning, biting nails and skin from nerves, jittery, unable to sleep, but so much needs to be done! Life cannot stop just for this competition...Or can it? Should it? Will this decision change my life????

I await the next email with bated breath! Fun though, eh?!!
