Writers Do Laundry Too + writing contests

All About Writing Courses' February Challenge (South Africa)

Deadline: 28 February 2013

(Note: Winners of Allaboutwritingcourses.com 's writing challenge usually receive R200 book voucher from the independent bookshop of their choice. See the previous contests here and here. Let us know if this has changed.)

For our February Challenge, we have this:

Write a 150-word story on the day that changed everything for your character. For good or ill, after whatever it was that happened, nothing would ever be the same again.

You could make the incident tragic – or life affirming; hugely dramatic or comic. It’s entire up to you. My guess is that what you need to avoid is being too obvious, too on the nose. And remember to show us what happened, rather than tell us.

Deadline for this is midnight of February 28, 2013. So you've got just about two weeks to compose the story of the decade! Have fun. Send your entry in via email pasted into the body of the email.
