Short Story competition
The weekend before last I won the inaugural NZ Chinese Association /Listener short story competition, topping up my earnings from writing so far this year by $1000. I got to read my short story to an audience of around 150 people, which was a huge buzz, especially as some of them responded quite emotionally to the story. It reminded me again why I write and what I write for.
