Jan 2021 100-word competition prompt

Hello everyone. A quick note to say that this month’s competition prompt (Before the shot was fired…) is a sentence START.

One, two max, word/s before it is fine but not at the end (or in the middle) of a sentence. I’m going through the entries so far and some have been disqualified – including three from one author – for this reason.

‘sentence start’ is mentioned twice on the 100-word competition page (at the top and on the themes section), on the entry form, plus on the countdown right-hand strip (until it’s updated on 1st February). Sorry if it’s too late for you for this month but I thought I should clarify this to avoid any other incorrect entries.

Fiction Fodder Fridays – Fri 15 Jan

Hello. Here are your prompts for this week.  As well as these sheets every Friday, the lovely author assistant/editor/lady Friday(!) Caroline Vincent will be posting my Word Count Wednesdays posts so you can let us know how your writing’s been going over the previous week. I aim for 300 words a day which is an astounding 109,500 words a year and so, starting today, you could have that (or more) by this time next year!

These random sheet posts include the text versions together with explanations of any individual pictures so that anyone unable to see the picture and prompts will be able to read the text, or have to text read to them. It also means you can copy and paste the text should you wish to use it for your own writing.

Make of them what you will and let me know how you get on in the comments section below (or on FacebookTwitter). NB. just give us a summary unless you want to share the whole piece but if you post the actual writing, it’s deemed as published and you’ll be limiting where you can send it. So here goes…

  1. Win!
  2. Travel cots
  3. BIKINI
  4. ‘I’d rather have no news than bad news, as we still have hope’
  5. 15 August SATURDAY
  6. Laying it on the line
  7. Big stories on the small screen

Word Count Wednesday 6 Jan

Good morning. Yes, it’s that time of the week again already.

After a bit of time off (unfortunately not writing) I’ve been back at work, only returning to my monologues at gone seven last night but I still managed a decent 1,381 words. It’ll be a mix of work work and my own novel/s so I hope to have a better count next week.

Good morning. Uh oh, it’s that time of the week again.
