A prize in store?

This free entry writing contest offers a £50 book voucher as a prize. They want hallowe'en stories  of between 350 and 3,000 words, which mention self storage in some way. UK residents only.

I do like a competition with a theme or a prompt and I'll have finished reading all the books I already have sometime in the next couple of decades, so I think I'll be giving this one a try.

Update. I contacted the organisers to ask whether it would only be winning stories which they'll share on social media. They've replied to say other stories may be used as well.

Self-storage? That could be really creepy...

My little office is a great self-storage unit, and there should be some good stories coming from there, if only I had time.

This is so tempting - no fee, books for the winner and a theme that's already sparking some ideas - but will I be able to squeeze in another deadline this month? I can but try!

Magic pumpkin seeds perhaps, Hilary?

Patsy said...

Certainly could.

Patsy said...

Not mine, Mac - just some I photographed. Maybe I can get some?

Patsy said...

There is a tight DEAD line, Oscar.

Patsy said...

Hope you - and I - manage it, Linda.

Patsy said...

Good luck!

Not yet. I intended to do something quick and short, but it ran away with me! Still got a few days left.
