My sparkling run of failures continues with my absence from the long list of the Over the Edge New Writer of the Year competition.
I thought one of the three I sent in stood a good chance but obviously I am no judge. Maybe I shouldn't have gone for rhyme. Some people hate it.
Not many familiar names on the list, though some of them are short story writers of course. Michael Farry is in there again - congratulations Michael - and Evan Costigan.
Oh well, maybe next year.
