Saturday a.m. saw me signing and returning a Client Agreement form to a London agent. A milestone on a long road.
Sunday a.m. saw me reading all about the Willesden competition on Page 3 of The Sunday Times.
Very exciting. And although I didn't agree with much of what was said, it is fantastic that the topic is getting such an airing.
I don't see how poor Zadie Smith saying that many entries seemed to be copycatting her own work could be called 'racist'... but there you are.
Point to add to the list of don'ts when entering writing competitions: Don't send in something similar to what the judge writes. They live with that all day, every day. Give them something fresh.
