1,000 words to tell a tale
Best magazine and now am considering entering the short story competition. Not having new ideas I am editing a story I wrote when I attended a creative writing course some years ago. I had to take out several hundred words to get it down to 1,000 in total. That's what I have been doing this afternoon. It is the only suitable story I have and I think it has been improved by editing but whether it's a winning entry is another matter. Still, it's a free to enter and I have nothing to lose, so I shall send it once I am happy that the edit works. I'll leave it for a few days so I come to it fresh again.
