It’s ever so warm. We sure do hope your inspiration stations have air-con. Or some kind of wafting device. Because it’s time to put our writing trousers on!
This is our twenty-eighth round of QuickFic (*small party trumpet*) and we’re sure you know how it all goes by now. But if you’re new round these parts – hello there! we’re absolutely delighted to have you – or the heat’s made your memory go a bit muddly, let’s have a quick recap:
At 9.50 each Friday, we give you a prompt. You write a story, of 250 words or less, inspired by that prompt, give it a title, and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You do that by 2.50pm this very day, because that is the deadline.
At 3.30pm, we announce the winner, and the winner wins books.
So, let’s get this show on the road, shall we?
This week’s prompt is this opening line:
Oooh. Where’s he off to, eh?
You tell us, and we’ll see you back here at 3.30!
By entering our QuickFic writing competitions, you’re granting us non-exclusive worldwide permission to reprint your story on our website should you win. The winner will also get a chance to win a place on one of our Start to Write one day courses, because at the end of the year we’ll be choosing our favourite of all the winners – the champion of champions, let’s say.
