Helen Yendell is running another of her fun short story competitions. She's provided word prompts; key, planet, soup, sardine, six. And there are prizes of £25 and £10 Amazon vouchers.
I always try these. Usually my efforts end up way over the required word count, but that's OK as it means I've 'won' a story idea, even if I don't actually enter.
I know what you're thinking - the moon isn't a planet. You're right, but it's where the soup dragon lives and he could be the key to winning this.
