My son won a writing competetion!!!

Hey everyone,

Great news; my son Jeremy is the winner in the online story-writing competition run by Author’ They have announced it on their Facebook page!! We’re all very excited here, as you can imagine. The competition was held in June this year and the story had to be upbuilding, with a positive message.

It had to be 5000 words or less. Jeremy wrote a Sci-fi story entitled ‘Dreams and Dust.”

If you go the facebook page of AUTHORSPROMOTER.COM you can read the announcement that Jeremy Szal is the winner. He was just 17 when he wrote it.  He was amazed to find out he had won. Coming first means a live interview and promotion so we are just waiting to hear the details, then will let you all know about it.

I’m so proud of him, especially since he beat me!!!!!!!!!!!

I wrote in an earlier blog that I had entered the competition, remember??? [ My story was called  “Janek, a True Story,” about my father-in-law’s early life in war-torn Poland.]

Well, I have come second, after my son and I’m REALLY pleased about it because of course, as a mum and teacher, I want my son to be the best that he can be and to try his best at whatever he does and to do what’s best!!

So, congratulations Jeremy! we’re all proud of you! Well done!



About loulouszal

Hi, I have always loved stories, from Dr Suess to Enid Blyton, to Roald Dahl, as a child and on to Jane Austen as a teen and adult. I love writing stories and poems too. I think writing and reading fantasy is a great way to travel, in your head and visit places you might never otherwise see. they can be as wonderful as you want to make them. I kept writing as a hobby all through my teen years and then as an adult, married with children ,I wrote stories for my family and read them out aloud as we traveled on long car trips in foreign countries. "The Diary of Arnmore" is one of these stories, followed closely by "Hungry Mr Croc." Two very different stories, aimed at completely different age groups, but both definately worth a read!
