Our latest competition

The Theme of the Competition is Human Weaknesses. Take one or more of the seven deadly sins: gluttony, sloth, lust, wrath, pride, envy and greed then weave a story to intrigue us all. It can be of any genre - romance, crime, zombie etc. But make the sin the centre of the story. Casual reference to it along the way will not be appreciated. You could take more than one sin, attach them to different characters and look at the consequences. Prizes will of course be awarded for excellent writing as well as relevance to the theme.

This Weeks Writing Tip (3)

Social networks are good for publicity but bad for writing. Estimate how many words you write posting to Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, and online forums and then think how far you could have progressed your MSS instead. By all means use them, but not as a substitute for your 'real' writing.
