I joined Vocal Media in May 2021 and since then I have been pleasantly surprised at a number of achievements in my writing.

I know I have personally grown in all areas of my writing since joining Vocal Media and I’ve made a number of great friends. There are many very talented people on the site, so anytime I earned an achievement, I was always very surprised.

Here are my major achievements since joining this platform :

My First Top Story

20 July 2021 — Creatively Re-use And Re-cycle

This poem was written as an example of how I will attempt to re-use and re-cycle items that are destined for the rubbish pile.

My Fiction Piece Chosen As A Vocal + Fiction Finalist

14 August 2021 — All In A Day’s Work

Even though this piece of Fiction was written and published in August 2021, I was able to enter it into the Vocal + Fiction Challenge. I was over the moon when, in January 2022, the finalists were announced and this piece was one of the finalists.

This means I will receive a year of Vocal + membership for being chosen as a finalist.

There were 1,025 finalists chosen from a pool of over 13,000 entries. The 25 winners will be announced on 25 February 2022.

Will my story be chosen as a winner? I highly doubt it, but being a finalist is enough for me.
