Enter the Writers Bureau Poetry and Short Story Competition and win up to £1000 in cash!

June 18th, 2010

First, thanks to Sue for last week’s guest blog.  I was away for a few days walking in Pembrokeshire.  The weather was great and the combination of sweeping headlands, masses of wild flowers and some of the best beaches in Europe was unbeatable.  Still a bit cold for swimming but I got plenty of paddling in!  I have a love/hate relationship with seagulls (predominantly hate) after one nearly ripped my finger off attempting to steal my hard-earned sandwich.  As my husband pointed out, only the very brave – or foolhardy – would attempt to get food away from me after a seven-mile hike.

Writers Bureau Poetry and Short Story Competition

It’s surprising how much more up-beat you feel when you’ve had a break.  And, as I’ve said before, one of the most optimistic freelancers that I know is Nick Daws.  His  blog is always full of interesting and useful information, plus he’s an excellent example of someone ‘juggling plates’ to ensure that he has enough projects on the go to provide a healthy living as a freelance writer.

Two things to remind you of this week.  First, this month’s Writers Bureau 21st Birthday competition.  You could win a copy of our Novel and Short Story Course by sending in the first sentence of your novel.  Sounds easy!  But remember, it has to grab the reader’s attention whilst still giving some indication of the genre and content of the novel.

And finally, don’t forget our annual Novel and Short Story Competition closes on 30th June.  So you’ve still time to enter and win up to £1000 in cash.
