3rd in Rubery International Short Story Competition

Delighted to be 3rd in Rubery Short Story Competition – pity about the commas! (Though I don’t think I had too many – in fact re-reading the story between finding out I’d been placed and actually seeing the adjudication I noticed a couple of places where I would have inserted one!

Here’s the link to the adjudication – http://www.ruberybookaward.com/2013-short-story-winners.html

And here’s a pic of me with the rather lovely trophy – IMG_20131227_190731

Question for my readers – do you think the use of commas is a generational thing?
