A Twist In The Tale - Part I

Well, the entry forms for Gateshead Council’s short story competition are out for 2007 already. I’ve written an entry for this for the last three years — one of which I actually sent in! Unfortunately the judging panel, despite being made up of writers, critics etc didn’t know good writing when they saw it (or at least didn’t spot any in my piece!) and so I didn’t win a prize.

What a swizz. I mean, the top prize was only £150, which would cover my hosting for a year, but it’s not exactly going to allow me to pack in the day job while I launch my new career as a bestselling writer, is it? Still, it ought to have been my £150…

So, if you live, work, or receive full time education in Gateshead, you’re welcome to enter. At least, according to Gateshead Council. However if you’re over 18, you’ll be directly competing against me, so I’d rather you didn’t, if it’s all the same to you. Anyway, the basic idea is that you’ve got to write a story up to 1500 words long with an unexpected ending.

I dunno, maybe the butler didn’t do it…?

If I get round to writing any entries for it, I’ll post any here that I decide notto submit (as part of the conditions is that it’s never been published before in any format).

…oh, and BOO!

Was that surprising enough for ya?
