Sci-fi?

Fancy having a go at Sci-fi? There's £200 on offer for the winner of this competition. The competition is intended to highlight new, unprofessional writers (check the rules as it means new sci-fi writers. Sales in other areas probably won't make you ineligible)

Do you know what the photo is of? As a clue, I took it on our trip to Scotland. 103 points to anyone who gets it right.

  1. I think it is the Loch Ness Monster disguising itself as a shipwreck :-) x

  2. I think it's an alien spaceship, looking for life underwater, because obviously life can't survive out of the water. (Their home planet is a water world.)

    Well, we were talking Sci-Fi, right?

    1. A logical deduction, Sheila - and I hope to read the story soon, but that's not what it is.

  3. It's the remains of a building that was once there before water covered it over. No doubt that's wrong too. :)

    1. You're right, Carol ... except for the building part.

    1. Oh good! You'd best get something ready then.

  5. It's a haggis submarine - an underwater craft created by the Loch Ness monsters (obviously there has to be more than one!) to help their little friends the haggises escape from those nasty haggis-hunters.

    1. Some parts of that are true, Linda. You can have thirty point.

  6. It's British Navy ship of WWI that has mysteriously risen from the bottom.

    1. That gets you about seven points, Oscar.

  7. Thanks for the sci fi tip, but I've got to keep a laserlike focus on my WIP. I'm going to guess a shipwreck, even if my first though was a submarine. Have a good one!

    1. My first thought was to give you some points, Fundy ... but nope. Good luck with the WIP though.

  8. It's the end of a pier that either burned down or blew away in the storms. But I'm not after any points.

    1. It does look like the remains of an old pier in this picture, Maggie - but it's a good thing you don't want the points.
