Friday Fun Competition & Writing Prompt

Friday Fun Competition

It's Friday.

I've got the stinky, stoopid flu and badly need to do something fun!

So, I've decided to have a Friday-afternoon-I've-got-the-flu-and-need-some-fun Competition :) 

The prize is a signed copy of my novel Dear Dylan, and the competition is to write a poem or piece of prose that makes me laugh so hard I forget that I've got a temperature and my head feels as if someone's drilling inside of it!

It doesn't matter what it's about - or how silly it is - the one that makes me laugh the most gets the prize.

Please send your entries to: contact[AT]siobhancurham[DOT]co[DOT]uk

Thank you. Cough. Cough. Sneeze.

Writing Prompt

For those of you who like writing prompts - here's a picture for you. One day, this beautiful carving just appeared in the field where I walk my dog. 

Take a good look at the pic and then free write about it for ten minutes and see what you come up with.

I hope you find it inspiring - and I'd love to see whatever you end up writing...

Till next time,

Happy writing!

  1. Wow! I can't wait to enter the competition - and the picture is pretty inspirational too! One question: do you want us to include any contact details in our emails or will you just ask the winner(s) for those?

  2. How long is this open for?
    Marian :D x

  3. Hello! So sorry for the delay in getting back to you - I was offline in bed this weekend :)
    Allie, no need for contact details until I announce the winner (s) and so glad you like the pic
    And Marian - it's open until this Wednesday 14th November
