    Thanks Seagreen (and to Newbie as well), reading it back, I'm thinking I've been watching more episodes of Outlander than is entirely healthy!

    Hi Sandra, thanks for your kind words and I think The Phone has convinced me of what I knew all along - if something is well written, all writing competitions come down to the subjective view of the judges liking it or not!

    Re competitions, 'subjective' has to be so, even though I was a bit disappointed not to have my Here & There story selected by the Scottish Arts Council, since it was set in Orkney and one of the best I did :(. Just have to try elsewhere. Orkney is where I am at the moment; passed through your neck of the woods yesterday, making a long trip from Bloody Scotland.
