On Tuesday evening I was given the Andrew Waterhouse award from New Writing North as part of this year’s Northern Writers’ Awards. I’m chuffed and more than a little overwhelmed by it all. I won’t give a full caption of all of the winners above, but it’s fair to say that I feel honoured to be recognised amongst some amazing writing talent!
I now have to take this seriously; with many things in the pipeline and thanks to what I can perhaps best describe as validation, I feel galvanised to get on with the book and start calling myself a writer. The whole thing is a bit of a whirlwind so I will blog more thoroughly later, but I feel suitably justified in directing you to some head-exapnding linkage.
