I won! I won!

I’m just a little bit excited. My story, My Princess Wears a Superman Cape won the Princess Parade Flash Fiction Challenge.

OK, so I’m more than a little excited – I have been telling anyone who will listen. Not bad for a last minute, first draft of a piece I wasn’t sure that I’d write down!

That post is currently the most popular post on this blog. It’s been shared around Facebook and a lot of people who haven’t commented before have now added comments, encouraging me to develop this to a kids book.

My challenge with it now is to work out how to do that… there are bits that people like, such as adding the laser to her stash of weapons, that might be better told in pictures, but I don’t know about taking it out. Then again, if it’s more a story book than a picture book, I could leave it in?

Looks like I have some work to do here…

The other reason I’m so excited is it’s been around 15 years since I won a writing competition, making this even more special.

A huge thank you to Rebecca Fyfe for running this challenge, I had fun writing my piece and reading what everyone else has written.
