I was amazed and thrilled to hear that my short story 'Say It with a Cake' had been selected for National Flash Fiction Day Anthology.
I was so genuinely amazed that I ignored the email for a few days and even when I opened it and read it I was slow to catch on that I'd been selected. It's a mega honour for an interloper writer such as me and sure to help me over my phobia with words, specifically my words in the public domain. I am grateful to the judges*, who normally scare the daylights out of me (just the word judge).
All the stories are flash fiction and very short so they were able to select a high number. The other selectees can be seen here as well as the micro competition winners and highly commended stories that ran alongside and will be included in the anthology. They are all wonderfully written original stories. The anthology will be published in June.
