There are old people roaming the street, ringing doorbells. They are in pairs, wearing gingham and tweed and they look quite frightening. My dad is huffing and puffing for no particular reason. I wonder if they are connected.
Maybe they’ve come to take him away….Or maybe that’s just a good place to start a story.
As I’ve been away for a bit, I thought the best place to pick up again would be to have a writing competition.
And so here it is: Ta-Daaaaaaa!!!!
You should know by now that all good stories have a strong opening hook which makes the reader read on.
Your mission, dear friends, is to write the first four sentences of a story that people will want to read. You can go scary, mystery, lovey-dovey, erotic, chaotic…the choice is yours.
The GOB competition is open until the end of June and the person who writes best opening bit will get a £30 (or exchange equivalent) Amazon Voucher to spend on what they want.
How do I enter the GOB writing competition?
The competition is FREE to enter.
Just write your entry in the comments section below as per usual. You can enter as many times as you like. Remember, you only get 4 sentences per entry to entice your reader…
Once you have entered, and this is important peeps, Tweet your followers about the competition and include the hashtag #GOBcomp.
Who’s going to judge the GOB writing competition?
I dunno yet! Okay? I’ll find someone…maybe not someone famous but…definitely someone who’s still alive. I’ll update soon with a name (not one I’ve just made up).
