work in progress

So far I've completed 539/2000 words for my entry to Company/Galaxy/LBD's short story competition. How's everyone else doing? I'm sure most have been written, edited and sent by now! I'm not leaving myself a lot of time, although I'm quite pleased with what I've written so far.

My idea's quite quirky and I do like it, although the whole short-story idea gets me so nervous! I've never written a short story, ever ever or ever. I'm hoping to get it finished and sent off by tomorrow, with only the chance of praying that it gets there on time!

How many people have entered? I don't know what's made me enter this year, I nearly wasn't going to until an idea popped into my head whilst on holiday. It gets me back into writing though, which I'm pleased about, although I'm guessing I won't have time to do much of anything after uni starts again next week.

Good luck to everyone that's entered and I hope we get more success from this fabulous magazine compared to you-know-who!

I entered. It was too good a comp to miss. I worked on an idea for about a week and got just over 1000words and then on Tuesday I completely scrapped the story and started writing something else. Don't forget they only take hard copies (something I didn't realise until last week)

Good luck!!

I need to get off my increasingly growing backside and do something like this. Hope you succeed!
