Scotsman Orange Short Story 2006

So what's next?

In the real world - work.

In the world that really matters - a short story. The Scotsman Orange Short Story Award is up for grabs again. 3000 words. Deadline for submissions Friday 10th March. First prize £7,500.

Oh, and the theme this year is "Work". Something I do know a bit about (see my novel).

So, there's not much time left. Two days to think about it. Then get that first draft down as quickly as possible. Leave to simmer for a couple of days. Then polish like mad in the time remaining.

Should be a doddle now I've overcome my recent bout of writer's block.
