Wedding gifts

Solution Loans are running a free to enter short story writing competition with the theme of 'the wedding gift'. You have 1,500 to 2,000 words and until the end of May. The first prize is £200.

This advice can be found on the site –

“As a writer, it’s worth remembering that your first idea for a story may often be someone else’s too, so it might be a good idea to dig again more deeply for a different or more unusual idea?”

My uncle had these badges made for my wedding and handed them out to qualifying guests. I'm reasonably certain that's not something that's ocurred to many other people!

Love the idea of the badges. Perhaps your uncle should set up a Writers' PR business.

Sorry, but I cannot enter a comp for a loan company. I cannot support these sort of companies as I find it morally unethical. Loan companies make money out of people's poverty and suffering.

That's a good idea. Now, how do I talk him into it?

Patsy said...

It might be satisfying to make money out of them? But if you feel that entering is supporting something you disagree with then you're right not to have a go.

Hi Patsy - great idea from your uncle ... fun thought - and perhaps a few sales ... cheers Hilary

Kelly Steel said...

Ha! Your uncle sure had a neat idea to do this! Cool!

Patsy said...

It was a fun idea, Hilary.

It was very clever of him, Kelly.
