Two pieces published

I am back after a lovely, "different" vacation, and before I write about my trip, and reply to comments on my last post, I want to share two writing successes with you.

My story "All that glitters" which I had entered for the Sunday Herald short story competition, won a special mention, and has been published here in today's Sunday Herald.

An article about the reasons behind rhymes was published in Friday's Open Sesame.

Hope you like them.

Enjoyed reading the short story - am mighty impressed by how the tiniest details in the story are expressed with such diligence.

But the article on Rhymes took me by surprise. Had no clue about such inner meanings in the kids Rhymes. I wondered what were they thinking when they sewed up such silly words together.Thanks for the info :)

Make the big announcement yo!! :D

Shruthi said...

Ano, Radhika, thank you!

Anitha, Thanks so much, Anitha :)

AlwaysHappyKya, thank you! You must do a search on google, then. You'll find so many fascinating stories about so many rhymes!

Peevee, heh heh, was just waiting for them to put it up on their site :)

loved the lotus sweet. Now I want one too, sugar be damned.
And horrified at Mistress Mary, quite contrary.
