I have been a very bad hedgehog. I entered a blog competition and I forgot to post about it here so you could all join in. It was over at Free the Princess and we were invited to write a story in ten words or less.
If you like flash fiction then you might want to pop across and have a look. All the entries are in the comments on this post and the results are here.
What makes it embarrassing is that I was one of the two winners. Matthew Delman, the blog owner, generously offered any book of the winners' choosing as a prize. If only I'd posted earlier.
It took me nearly a week to come up with my eight-word entry. At that rate, an eighty thousand word novel would take over 200 years. Maybe I'm not cut out for novel writing.
