Thanks to Sharon Boothroyd of Kishboo magazine for sending me the link to this competition fron Online Writing tips.
You have between 2,000 and 5,000 words to play with and until February for inspiration to strike, International entries are welcomed and there's no theme - so there's no excuse for not having a go. The rest of the site looks interesting too.
Talking of interesting sites, don't forget to read the latest issue of Kishboo (it's free online) and perhaps even think about submitting something for the next issue.
A review of one of my books perhaps ;-)
My writing tip - pointy end of the pen to the paper (or fingertips on keyboard) and get on with it.
