This regular competition looks like fun. Each quarter three random words are selected for entrants to include in a 500 word story. Shortlisted entries will be published and narrated by actors. The winner also gets $100.

For the competition starting 15th July the words are oxidation, love and alphabet. Don't waste time trying to work out what a towel elephant has to do with any of this* - get writing!

*Although there's a 100 points in it if you can come up with a convincing explanation.

    1. Well spotted, Suzy. I had put ending not starting - and so had they on one part of the site. One comp (with different words) has just ended and another has started. I'm going to blame the heat!

      Like your elephant explanation which is better than mine. A lot better!

  4. I love the power of association - I initially read the post as '...random words are selected for elephants to include in a 500 words story...' As for those elephants , in Thailand I saw elephants painting so why not writing as well ?
