Oops – Did I perhaps just spent the twenty-odd pounds I was going to spend on a pair of toasty Muji Earmuffs ( http://www.muji.eu/pages/online.asp?V=1&Sec=5&Sub=129&PID=5281) on entering the Mslexia novel competition (http://www.mslexia.co.uk/whatson/msbusiness/ncomp_active.php) ?
Yes. Yes I did. But the competition is being judged by Sarah Waters this year. Perhaps, if Kilea gets past the initial readers, Waters will be sympathetic towards the supernatural/psychological elements of the novel?
If you have a scarf you’re planning on purchasing, or a good pair of winter boots, consider joining me instead in a ticket to the literary lottery. Perhaps it’ll be a milder winter this year.
