My short story Out of Her Misery is one of five to have been shortlisted for the Circalit CircaChallenge Short Story competition with Ether Books. http://www.circalit.com/news/
It’s one of the few stories I’ve written recently where I’ve drafted it in longhand before typing it up and editing it on my laptop. I used to write all my stories longhand – it was only really during my first attempt at NANOWRIMO that I started doing all the composition directly onto my PC because there simply wasn’t time to do it any other way. Now I generally always work like that. But Out of Her Misery just seemed to demand being written down first. I wonder if it does make a difference.
