Albino Angel Apes and the Unashamed Gloat

Received my WotF certificate today, and very handsome it looks, too. I’ll have to see if I can polish up and rescue the actual story in question — it features albino angel apes, so I can’t give up on it yet. 

The other piece of good news is that Daily Science Fiction have revealed their October schedule, and my flash story “Amy’s First” is slotted for e-mail distribution on Wednesday 19th October (sign-up – it’s free!), and then featured on the front of their website a week later. This makes me both excited and…nervous! Flash is not my natural form — I’ve always struggled with burgeoning wordcounts and invasive infodumps (and too many damned adjectives) — but maybe the discipline it requires, in knowing what is vital and what to omit, is something I should extend to all my writing now…

"The Right Honorable Mention"


    1. It demands framing! Now I just need to shoot off an e-mail to see if I can get a Semi-Finalist version. I received a critique, but no certificate! (See how easily I’m turned into an obsessive collector…)
