Runner Up for Project REUTSway!

A few months ago I entered a competition run by REUTS Publications called Project REUTSway, the theme of which was mythology. Each week we were tasked with writing a short story inspired by particular world mythology. The two stories I entered, for the Egyptian week and the Celtic week were named runners up! REUTS are currently doing a Runner-up tour in which they post all the entries that were runner up on their blog. Today my Celtic short story was posted. You can check it out here.

It’s a short retelling of the King Arthur legend from the point of view of the Lady of the Lake.

I’ll post another link when my other entry is posted later in the tour!

Coming Up This November!

Once again this November is going to be a busy one! NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) is happening again this year. The idea is to attempt to write 50,000 words in one month. It is quite a challenge but even if you don’t reach 50k it is still great for motivating you to write.

Also this November is the second year of REUTS independent YA/NA publisher’s short story project and competition Project REUTSway. Every week there is a new prompt for which you have to write a short story. This year’s theme is World Mythology, focusing on Egyptian, Celtic, Asian and Eastern European cultures. The best stories will be selected for an anthology.

More information can also be found in their other blog posts.

These are some great opportunities to get you writing this coming November!
