- Very happy to be second in the Life Plus 2m 2 competition:
- Being highly commended in the Michael Terrence publishing short story comp meant I’m in their anthology, ‘A Tail of a Mouse’ – to me this is a win!
- The Monkey Collection’s next volume of stories will contain my story, ‘Forgetment’
- Ink Tears
- The Just Write/Writing Magazine creative writing competition:
- Hour of Writes
Sit down to a blank screen with just a glimmer of an idea and see what comes out… You’ve got one hour. But you do have a few days to think about the prompt. My name on this site is ‘Seaside Scribbler’ Here’s a link to my entries page, including ones that won: Please bear in mind these were written in an hour start to finish with no planning and are full of errors!
A bit like Hour of Writes but harder. You get half an hour, and you get the prompt there and then. Brilliant fun! Here’s a couple of mine that won:
- Flash 500
Fancy something a bit longer? Flash fiction is great for focussing your mind. It’s amazing how few words you need to tell a story…
And the judge’s report made me smile:
