A novelty

Thanks to my cousin Christopher, for sending me this link for a novel writing competition. There's a £20,000 as the prize. Entrants must be unpublished, so sadly I can't try this one. Christopher thought that maybe one of my blog readers would like to try.

I considered illustrating this post with an embarressing photo of him - but then remembered that could go two ways, so I've picked on another member of our family instead.

What do you reckon to my chances of getting away with this?

Hi Patsy - £20,000 would be very nice! Your cousin could well be right ... let's hope someone picks it up and wins. Is she called Candy ... to match the candy floss she's eating .. ? Fun photo - and yes you'll be just fine with this one ... cheers Hilary

Impressive prize.
Now hopefully that family member doesn't share an embarrassing photo of you!

Cute sweater! Reckon you'll just about get away with it.

You'll get away with this one, Patsy. The novel is another matter.

Looks interesting but I've failed to link to their full terms and conditions which you have to state you agree too ... has anyone had any success in finding these?

Maggie May said...

Yes Tracy, I typed in www.dailymail.co.uk/novel comp My auto type won't let me type novel comp as one word, but otherwise it works.

Patsy said...

He he - you wouldn't suggest that name if you could see him now, Hilary!

Patsy said...

He doesn't look at my blog, so I'm safe, Alex.

Probably.

Patsy said...

That would work, Mac. It'll be my course of action if I get found out.

Patsy said...

My Granny knitted it, Christine. I expect I had a similar one, though I don't have a photo of me wearing it.

Patsy said...

Ah well - can't win them all.

Patsy said...

I couldn't see it, Tracy.

Thanks, Maggie!

They've added the address for the full terms now- and it's interesting. Hope this link works:

Just copy and paste the link and you should be able to read them.

I think you're safe, Patsy. Just about.

Patsy said...

I seem to have got away with it so far, Frances.
