My novel is longlisted for the Mslexia Novel Competition for unpublished women writers.
This is stunning, and has caught me with my draft in a mess.
I sent in 5k, and have to now send in about 85k by the 30th of Oct (Of this year!).
As you can imagine, it’s going to be an insane caffeine-fueled waking nightmare. (I know I won’t place– but this is a great opportunity to show my MS to some very esteemed judges, and I don’t want them coughing hairballs. Besides I get to polish my novel in a very short space– what’s not to like?)
