I have just found out that my Au Revoir short story, which I entered into the Global Short Story Competition back in September, was one of six short-listed. This story grew from a creative writing exercise I did with my creative writing group where we wrote a short story using the following prompts:- moving house, a funeral, starting a new job and the end of an affair. In my usual gloomy style I chose “a funeral” as my prompt. They patiently listened to me read it out and gave me valuable feedback so thanks! The story can be found under the short story section of this blog.
