My NaNoWriMo Word Count Widgets!

Bitmead Bursary....

.....was won by fellow Authonomite, Jo G, with her fantastic book Lacey's House. Third place was another fellow Authonomite, Andrew, with his book The Poet. And I rounded off the Authonomy 1, 2, 3 by coming second with Hospital Corners!

Obviously I'd have loved to win, but I'm over the moon with coming runner-up. It adds another credit to my writing CV (I can say I've come runner-up in 66% of the writing competitions I've ever entered!) and I'm hopeful that someone will eventually take it on. Legend Press will get back to me in the next few days with the judges comments and I'll take them on board.

I also finished NaNoWriMo with a healthy wordcount and will get busy rewriting and whipping Moving Meditation into shape over the next year. But first I'm going to concentrate on finishing off Agoraphobics Anonymous. I think it probably works better than HC as a "first" novel by an unpublished author, and I hope a lovely agent or publisher will agree with me! I start on the editing/rewriting tomorrow.
