Computer problems and Writing success

After a week long struggle, my computer has bitten the electronic biscuit as it no longer registers the existence of the hard drive. Thankfully, most my important data is backed up on the external drive I asked for at Christmas. Feeling slightly psychic!

Included in those files, is a story I sent away to Almond Press  a couple of months ago. It is now in the top three of 178 stories submitted to them and one of the fifteen due to be included in their collection. I shall update once it’s all done and am looking forward to the publication of the judge’s comments! Those should be a good eye-opener into the process and how well I and others really faired.

So, some good news to balance the negative – Karma!! And remember kids…always back up your data – stories especially – even if it’s just by email. You never know when your hard drive will go poof.

What a start to 2013!
