Being Busy and Molly Keane

Life has been very busy lately. In May I finished up a three year stint back in college. It was a fantastic experience, but exhausting. I remember when I was 18 and my first college experience, I had all the time in the world. This time, there were four kids, a very understanding husband and a book to be written. All at the same time. So, while it's nearly October now, I still haven't quite recovered! But in the middle of all the stress of final projects, there was a lovely treat when I learned that my short story "Perhaps The Flames" had won the Molly Keane Short Story competition. It was a complete honour. And though I had an acute attack of imposter syndrome - really, me? The winner? Never! - the day down in Lismore where I got to read my story and was present with my prize, was a wonderful experience. Many thanks to the lovely people of Lismore and the Waterford County Council Arts Office.
