How many did you get right?
Now you've seen that just one sentence can get a reader thinking, you'll realise it's quite possible to tell a whole story in 100 words. Luckily I've found competitions for exactly that.
Becoming a finalist in this competition will get your story included in an anthology, an extract of your novel read by Curtis Brown creative (who'll provide written feedback) and the winner will be given a place on the Curtis Brown novel writing course.
The winner of this one gets £1,000. You'll have to allow RD to publish your entry even if you don't win, but I shan't let that deter me from having a go.
