I received confirmation by e-mail today that my short story submitted to 1000words is up on their website, having been accepted by them. Check it out here, including the photo which prompted the story. Really nice to know it was appreciated enough to publish.
For those interested, 1000words began as a project in response to photographs published on a Pinterest board, with a number published as a result. The website remains open to submissions, with flash fiction accepted on an ad hoc basis i.e. as and when accepted.
Hope people enjoy the story!
