3 Competitions - from 250 words to 2500

Words with Jam have launched their short story competitions for this year and revised the format so there are three different competitions with varying word count limits. From what I can see the theme is an open one.

Could well be worth dusting off an old short story from your back catalogue to see if it will fit the criteria.

Good news: there is plenty of time to enter - closing date is end of October.
Bad news: there is an entry fee but it is less than the cost of two glasses of wine.

If you enter - Good Luck!

As 50 Sheds of Grey seems to be very popular at the moment I am sure we are all thinking about spicing up our stories.

This post by Angela Ackerman might well give you some hints on how to work some flirty body language into your work.

Point of view can bee tricky. Deep Third or Tight Third? First person or Omniscient Third?

Confused? I often am but here is an interesting post on the use of different points of view in writing from the folks over at i09.

How to write as an omniscient character if you are not actually omniscient yourself


Have a look and hope it is of use!
