Buy a Friend A Book Competition.
Today is Buy A Friend A Book Week as initiated by Debra Hamel on Deblog. To celebrate I am going to run a competition. It is a little late - more organised people have run their competition to end at BAFABW - but mine will have to start now.
Anyway, anyway, after deliberating over this for half a day I have decided now that the competition will be....
To write a story of exactly 101 words (not including title) written using words spelt exactly as you say them (e.g. I wint downt laik an got owt me buk. Twas gud buk. I cudnat stop reedin.) The theme is 'guilty pleasures'.
The prize will be a copy of RIDDLEY WALKER by Russell Hoban which I am reading at the moment and think it is one of the most extraordinary books I have ever read (the copy will be new, of course, because I am not about to let this one go).
The closing date will be Halloween.
Later note: Please submit entries to the comment box at the bottom of this post - leaving your email address so I can reach you at the end of your 101 words. I suggest you put this in the form 'clare AT claredudman DOT com' so as not to attract spam.
(Thanks to CrimeFictionReader for reminding me of this).
