Sometime in late November I ever so casually submitted a short story for the 2011 UTS Writers' Anthology. AND well, my story has been shortlisted for the publication, which "showcases the best new talent from UTS"!!
This is potentially my first publication since my high school magazine published my short story about crashing into a rock face on a flying fox.
I'll be working with one of the anthology editors for the next few weeks to polish it up for final selections and then who knows I could be at Gleebooks and then the Sydney Writers' Festival sipping champaign at my very first book launch! I may even get up in the middle of it all to start thanking my various fans (mainly mum and Mat) for always believing in me (sniff).
