My recent blog posts are starting to feel like a series on 'genres what I don't normally write'. I have written Sci-fi* but I've done even less of that than I have children's stories. I might have a go at something for this competition though. There's plenty of time to work on it and the prize includes a sparkling trophy thing as well as books, paid publication and other stuff. I've never won any kind of trophy for writing (or anything else as far as I can remember and I think I would remember)
If you have something already written, or can come up with an entry by 16th December then this competition is worth a look. First prize is £300.
On a totally different note, Escape to the Country (US link here) will be free to download on Wednesday and Thursday of this week. Anything you can do to help publicise this will be greatly appreciated - and please do download yourself a copy if you haven't already.
*and it's had almost no adverse effects at all.
