.My first short story for ABC Open's 500 Words, a writing project giving a voice to everyday Australians, was called Twenty Hours. It was first published on 5 December 2013.
The words tell the unfortunate story of my relocation from Murrayville, a small town on the South Australian / Victorian borderline, to Port Augusta, my current home.
I really like this story. It doesn't really make me gag, like some of my older stuff. It comes from a confusing life stage for me, so much promise mixed with so much ... not promise, disappointment and anxiety.
Twenty Hours has the most comments out of any of my stories published on ABC Open and 133 views is decent.
