Not the solution

Thanks to Alyson Hilbourne (who previously came second in one of their competitions) for telling me that Solutions Loans are running another free to enter short story contest. First prize is £200.

As you may have guessed, I'm a big fan of free to enter writing competitions. The same cannot be said of loan companies. If you find yourself in financial difficulties there are better (in my opinion) ways of dealing with the problem than accruing more debt at incredibly high interest rates. Please talk to your bank, if appropriate contact a charity or support organisation connected with your personal circumstances, or seek advice from somewhere such as Citizen's Advice.

I haven't tried any contests or written anything short in a while. That's what I should do the next time I'm in between projects!

More debt is never the answer.

An important message at this time of year.

Was going to enter this but when I try to go to the website, my McaFee anti-virus throws up a red warning page and tells me it's a VERY risky page to visit. So, I won't be clicking through or entering the competition. Just thought I'd warn people - don't want you opening your PCs up to a load of possible trouble!
