Sick note

£300 is on offer for this sci-fi competition, with the theme of medicine, health and illness. Personally I'd have thought that was three themes, which just goes to show what I know about science fiction.

In the future, sea urchins will be trained to roll in medicine and then over sick people. This will provide both medicine and an acupuncture session ...

What do you reckon, with characters and a plot could I be on to something?

  1. Interesting theme. I think that with characters and plot, a good writer can pull off almost anything. ;-)

    1. I agree - sadly I don't actually have characters and a plot for this one.

  2. I don't know...but they wouldn't make cuddly pets

  3. Sounds a good theme but don't know if I could come up with anything!

  4. That would put all those little Oriental people out of business.

    1. It would, Oscar. Just one of many downsides, I suspect.

  5. As a scuba diver who has seen lots of different sorts of sea urchins, you've got me wondering how to write a story about them!!
