Even in the most frustrating weeks there are things to savour.  Last week it was winning the Slingink Shorts 2011 competition.  The anthology will be titled after my entry, 'Communication' and it will also contain my two other entries, 'Still' and 'Combat'.  Of course, there'll be lots more to read in it too.  I'll post the details as soon as I get them, or you can read the top three entries online at www.slingink.com.
The competition's run annually for mini stories of 140 words plus a one word title, which is a luxurious amount of words for anyone used to tweeting.  Another market for a similar length is the annual Binnacle competition run by the University of Maine.  Check out the website at www.umm.maine.edu/ultra-short-competition.html.
