Spring Writing Event…. DEADLINE EXTENDED 

For the writing event I have only had two entries so far so I have decided to extend the deadline by one week until the 19th of March incase anyone else wants to submit a story. Rules are below. 

The theme for this one as it is the first one that I wanted to do and because of the time of year will be Spring. 

If it is popular enough, then I will hold other events in the future. 

This is open to anyone who wants to take part it can be any genre (horror, erotica, Sci-Fi, crime, thriller, etc. Anything you fancy)

The format can be: 

Short stories (Max word count 7,500 words)


Flash fiction (Max word count 2,000 words)

If you want to take part send you entries to Scottish_legend@hotmail.com. Also, attach any images you wish to be added into the entries. 

If you include your details and I will link them to your blogs as well.

I will post the submissions on my blog and notify each person who enters on when their submission will be published. 

All I ask is that if place a pingback on your page to spread the word about the Event.

    I’m really hoping to have something ready for this. Been a bit manic for me over the last few weeks, so thank you for extending the deadline. It’s wonderful that you’re hosting it, especially knowing what fun AC Elliot’s Halloween event was. I’ll share on WordPress, and on Facebook and Twitter. Hopefully it’ll pick up some more entries for you.

    Also double checking that you’re happy with entries being posted on writers’ own blogs after they’ve appeared on yours.

    1. Yeah that would be great thank you. I figured it’s been busy time for people and I haven’t written anything either.

      Yeah absolutely once the entry has been posted can post it on other blogs with the request of a ping back to the post to spread the word and get others seen as well

        Excellent – thanks! I’ll spread the word.

        You’ve certainly got your hands full right now, but I’m confident you’ll get something written – and you have that wonderful advantage of being able to give yourself until the day you post to get yours done! Perk of the job! 😊

        1. Thank you so much. Yeah. The little one is keeping me busy she is a handful and pretty sure she’s starting teething.
          Thats a good point I never thought of that I can wait until the end 😁

            I’m full of useless information like that! 😀

            Good luck with the teething! Just keep her gums as cool as possible, and Calpol and baby Bonjela to hand.

            1. Hahaha thanks. That’s the plan. She’s only 12 weeks but it’s happening, I think. She is a very advanced baby ☺️

    It’s wonderful that Colin is prepared to take this on. Please consider sending in something for the Spring event – these are such fun, and it’s great to be able to support other writers and bloggers.
