Last week I was invited to my first podcast as a writer. I accepted with glee and was later interviewed in Carrick-on-Shannon by Breifne Earley. It was a great experience and I was delighted to be on the excellent Leitrim Daily podcast. It was my first time being interviewed as an author so that was particularly exciting!
So you can listen to the interview right here, or on the Leitrim Daily website, or wherever you listen to your podcasts normally! Let me know what you think in the comments below!
During the podcast, I was telling Breifne about taking part in the NYC Midnight Flash Fiction competition (Read more about that competition here) and he offered me a challenge! I had to write a short story with the prompt of:
- Genre: Slasher
- Location: Manorhamilton
- Object: A Keyring
As you can see it’s a very unusual group but I made it work! You can read that right here! Click here to read The Woman in the Shawl! After you’ve read it be sure to return here for the competition!
Of course, not content with just me having to write under pressure, Breifne asked me to offer his listeners a challenge in the same vein, so here it is!
- Genre: Romance
- Location: Leitrim
- Object: A broken teapot
