Finalist! Again!
Monday, July 24, 2006  4:25:00 PM

by Robyn M. Speed

Two years in a row with two different manuscripts.

Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust Unpublished Manuscript Award 2006 - Finalist!

I submitted my visionary manuscript, The Key, to the Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust Unpublished Manuscript Award 2006. It is a very different manuscript to the one that made the short list last year. And it came as a huge surprise to receive an email today to say that They Key has been short-listed!

I was, and still am, extremely excited--to the point I am finding it hard to think straight!

To be short-listed two years running with two different manuscripts is hugely satisfying. And I am hoping that this will help to persuade publishers that I am worth taking a chance on!

If nothing else it will demonstrate that I am committed to my work and capable of producing. I am not a one book wonder.

I am currently working on a new novel which I hope to enter into next years award, providing I can keep it within the word count and finish it in time. If I can achieve that I believe that that work, too, has a good chance of making the short-list.

Where I sit, here at my desk, I look up to see the framed finalist certificate and merit award certificate from last year, for Dimension's Doorway, and that has served to inspire me. After August I will be able to look up and see yet another framed finalist certificate. It would be nice to win the big award and the cash, but I honestly do not mind if I don't win. To be a finalist two years running with two different manuscripts says a lot!

Writing is such a solitary activity, fraught with self-doubts, fears, and rejection letters. To be recognized, to have your peers say 'this is a good', well, huge sigh of relief more than anything else.

The awards function is 18th August. I will keep you posted.
