Royal Commonwealth Essay Competition
I was doing some file housekeeping, and I found the essay that won an award from the Royal Commonwealth Essay Competition, which I wrote in 1989 at 15 years old. The essay topic was to “write a short story in which a grandfather, a tree and a musical instrument are the main elements.” Let’s just say that my love for fantasy started from a very young age! I didn’t make any changes at all, the essay is as is – straight from the mind of a fifteen year old. See that entry here.
