Jason Evans, of “The Clarity Of Night” fame, hosts a short fiction writing competition on his blog every few months, and I try and enter each time so I can exercise my fiction writing muscles a bit!
How it works is he takes a picture that entrants must use as inspiration, and all entries are limited to 250 words. You can write in any genre. He has some pretty groovy prizes up for grabs, and whilst my entries are nowhere near the caliber of most of the entries, I like to try and stay within the guidelines of the competition. And 250 words is a challenge believe me!
For anyone and everyone who entered the last time, there’s a new one coming soon and this time there’s a twist- the number of entries is limited so once its announced be sure not to procrastinate!!
