Perhaps you could send your newborn. There’s a story there, I’m sure!

Time has clearly started to speed up. It feels like only last month I sent in my last submission. Anyways, I have a half idea for a story, and if I can put it down on paper to start with; I might well send it in.

What they are really going for is something that will translate well to radio, so make sure you read it aloud several times before you click send, smooth off any rough edges.

I didn't have time to write anything new so I'm cutting the words of an old story I wrote and sending that one in instead.

I actually entered this for the first time in years. I ended up shearing 300 words off something to fit it.
Looks like there were 2,300 people in ahead of me.

I got a story in with twenty minutes to go while being very drunk. Doubt it will place in the top ten at all but still worth a shot and always important to keep up the yearly tradition.

I had half a story and was getting stuck in yesterday. Thought the deadline was next Friday.

Going to keep going and use it for Wild Atlantic Words.
