Short fiction contest - win a £50 Amazon gift card or PayPal prize

This post was last modified: 17 May 2014 08:51 PM by TechnoHippy.
I've setup a short fiction contest on my blog. I'm hoping it will become a regular feature, but let's see how this first one goes. The contest is to write a story of no more than 500 words based on the selected image, visit the competition page on my blog to find out more:

I'm hoping some of the talented writers we have here will take part!DecemberOnly

What a fantastic idea, Michael, not to mention generous! The picture is right up my street too. I'll get my thinking cap on.

I probably should have mentioned that there is no fee for entering.

The word limit is a maximum, not a requirement, so you could in theory submit a drabble.

Michael, this is fantastic. And as Dave says, it is most generous. Count me in!

You can interpret it as you like.

Can I also ask that people help spread the word? Cheeky I know :-)

Right-o!  Course I'll spread the word.  I'm just a bit busy right now but I'll tweet and blog it some time soon.
