Would you believe it?! After wrestling with my short story competition entry yesterday and forcing myself to sit down to try and finish the damned thing, I discovered that I had completely missed a crucial part of the brief! Any story should be inspired by nature…mine, well, er, mine wasn’t. It was inspired by one of the celebrity judges because I thought it would be right up her street. Now, I’m sure this is a case of do as I say, not as I do, because I recall I had a rant a week or two ago about how pointless it was trying to write something you don’t feel.
Oh and just an aside, it doesn’t even have to be a short story, poems are also accepted. I can’t seem to get off the poetry train, every time I try, something keeps dragging me back in!
