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.
