More acorns

I was pleased to be 'mentioned' along with several writing friends in the recent Little Acorns competition.

I'm even more pleased they're running another competition this month. All you need do is write 300 words. Actually it's a bit less than that as they've provided 6 to get you started. You have all month to do it, entry is free and there's a £20 prize.

Commiserations on missing out a February win. Thanks for the link. I may give this a go, except I can only find 5 words in the list of 'must include'. Maybe it's a trick? Or a test?

They're written in green in the blog post, Beatrice.

You motivate me to keep going!

Spite, deliberate, choice, garage, triangle
Still only counting five. I'll email to check and will report back.

Patsy said...

Ah! I misread your comment as well as miscounting the words. Clearly I need more tea ... and cake.

Hi Patsy ... At least you're still writing ... but I can only see five words, unless "6" is included ... did you miscount - yes more tea .. and now it must be time for coffee cake ...

Good luck and cheers Hilary

Congratulations, Patsy!

Frances Garrood said...

Patsy, your energy is an inspiration to lazy people like me. And well done on the mention!

Patsy said...

They've now added a sixth.

Patsy said...

Oh good, Carole!

Patsy said...

There were five, but they've added the missing one now, Hilary.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Alex.

Patsy said...

Thanks, Frances - although I'm quite lazy myself.

Thanks for this, Patsy. I've promised myself not to be distracted by any other writing until I've finished my current project, but I do like flash fiction, and it is only 300 words ...

Sometimes doing something a bit different can help with the main project, Linda - as long as it doesn't distract you for too long.
