Caption Winner!

I was amazed to receive an e-mail from Cafe Direct yesterday letting me know I had won their Friday Fun Caption Competition.

The photo and all entries can be seen here

My caption was In the Cafe Direct musical statue contest Chrissie opts for the “I’m a little teapot”.  I have won a lovely set of Cafédirect goodies, a Bodum cafétiere, two Cafédirect mugs and some gorgeous Divine chocolate with raspberries!

This has really cheered me up as I never expected to win and even though it is only one sentence it's so nice they chose mine.

I have to admit since starting this blog even though it has only been a few days it has really fuelled me into action and have managed more in the past few days than the last two months.

Yesturday I managed to e-mail off two stories I wrote last year.  I have no real expectations of anything happening with either of them but I can live in hope.  All I can hope is to create opportunities for myself and eventually it may come to something.  I also managed to print off a story I haven't finished, it is presently 3000 words long.  I plan to be very ambitious and enter it into the Bridport Short Story Competition so the end product will be nearer to 5000 words.  This is what I plan to work on presently.  I have also found out about a a local art cafe which has me very excited - will tell you more about that tomorrow
