Updates… a BP logo & a short story

On the BP logo rebrand competition my entry came about joint 35th out of the 60 shortlisted, with a total of 29 votes. The winner got 2740, so not that close really, (although the fourth placed design got 505, so quite a rapid drop off from the winner) but not bad for an international competition…

Not unsurprisingly I didn’t win the Guardian short story competition either. The published winner and the 5 others published on line are here

Having now read them all however, I don’t feel at all disheartened and I will definitely try writing more. I think the story I entered has a weak ending and is a bit suburban/ cosy with little edge or dark undercurrent to keep you reading to the end. A stronger “punchline” is definitely required… so maybe I’ll start from the end and write the story backwards up to that..

Onto the next one….
