5 Minute Fiction Christmas competition

I have won 1st prize in the 5 Minute Fiction Christmas competition.  My story will appear on the website on 1 December.




www.5minutefiction.co.uk: Result announced

“Two Hundred and Twenty Million Seconds” came nowhere.  “Don’t Tell Me What It Is” came 2nd, and wins GBP 50. 

It would be churlish of me to comment on the abysmal quality of the other entries.


I have been short-listed twice in the 1st anniversary competition run by 5minutefiction.co.uk.

My entries are called “Two Hundred and Twenty Million Seconds”, and “Don’t Tell Me What It Is”. 

The final result is decided by public vote, and so please visit the website and vote for me.
