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 (4)

Don't waste time writing needless background that won't appear in the story, or doing research that you strongly suspect to be irrelevant. If in doubt, do the research whilst you are writing. This is a particular problem with science fiction and fantasy, but happens everywhere.
