Sci Fi London 48hr Fiction Challenge
« on: February 27, 2017, 11:26:25 PM »
Hi folks,

This competition has intrigued me. They send you a title, a line of dialogue you must use and an optional sci fi hook on 8th April at 11am and you have 48hrs to send in a 2000 word story.

Time on my hands makes me a terrible procrastinator, so a tight deadline and a head start sounds ace.

Thank you for posting this Dave. This seems really intriguing so it would be rude not to give it a go. If anyone else from this site applies we should perhaps post links to our stories on this page. x

Okay that's pretty cool. I'm in. Must remember to set up an account before the deadline.

Account set up took like 1min. I'm in but I'm away on a trip the bloody 9th in the morning, so since I'll need to rest, I'll try to make it a 12h challenge. *shrugs*
