I can’t believe it! THE CRICKET’S LOVE SONG is on the Wattys 2018 longlist. There were 151,767 entries this year and this story made it to the top 784 in the longlist. Even without getting into the shortlist or winning, this in itself will be a memorable achievement in my writing journey.

Thank you, God. Yesterday, I had a big surprise. The Cricket’s Love Song is #10 in the Animal Kingdom genre on Wattpad . This is the first time any of my stories have been given a rank and I have all of you to thank for that. This wouldn’t be possible without your love and support and I am truly honoured.

If you haven’t checked this out yet, I hope that you do. It’s a short story about a cricket and his quest for true love. Clicking on the picture will take you to the story. Thank you all once again and God bless. 🙂

A Special Feature: Hans Christian Andersen

A writer whose stories have inspired generations

Today in 1805, a wonderful author named Hans Christian Andersen was born.

For many people (perhaps, even yourself), his well-known stories such as The Ugly DucklingThe Brave Tin Soldier, and The Little Mermaid continue to be favourites long after his passing in 1875.

His stories appeal well to many especially children and as we mature into adults, some of them grow more resonant with meaning.

Personally being a child who was often restricted from playing outside, his stories were always great company indoors. Fast forward to 2018, his spirit and stories now inspire me to write. In fact, his style of story-telling inspired my recent short story ‘The Cricket’s Love Song‘.

In honour of his 213th birthday, here’s a link for those of us who’d like to revisit his stories.
