Competition time.

Well, I gave up on the freaky fable story, I missed the deadline. Well I would have if I had carried on. I started with Goldilocks being a warrior princess who kills three members of a bear cult. Then I scrapped it because it was tosh and not what they were looking for in the first place. The idea is to take a story and write it in such a way that it reads like a horror story, and not change an existing folktale into a horror story. My own fault, I should have read the guidelines properly in the first place.


I didn’t like the story anyway.
Whatever, it’s history, let’s move on Gingerboy, as they say in Angola.

On my manuscript I have to admit to being very lazy recently, I’ve hardly achieved anything.
In my defence, I have been writing lyrics; that’s translating German lyrics to English and scribbling down my own. I’ve a couple of good guitar riffs that I want to write some lines for as well but that will have to wait I’m afraid.


I entered a competition a couple of weeks ago; I can’t believe I haven’t told you. Anyway, it’s had a nice reaction from the other contestants, (some not so unbiased, thanks Rich from www.StrugglingAuthors.com ) which doesn’t mean it will win, but it was good for my flagging ego.

The competition itself is run by www.linkedin.com and the link to the page Competition itself is:

But I’m not sure if you have to be a member to read it.

Click on the link and you’ll find out soon enough ;-)



Yeah, and that’s it for now.

Right, back to the lyrics then.

You sound busy though with the music and translations. Well done you.
I did sort of join LINKEDIN but the link you show didn't work.

Lawdee lawdee ....... that was an awesome piece of writing me ole fruit cup. I take my hat off to you.
Your brilliance will find recognition one day, I feel sure.

I personally think you could try that horror-fairy-tail short story nevertheless... some day, when you least expect it, the perfect one will come up twirling in your mind.

I think those kind of contests ideas are always coming back on again. Playing around with fairy tails it's a common trick.

Hugs,
Vanessa.

Thanks Tee, your compliments are winning me over and I'm starting to believe you, lol.
The thing about the horror-fairytale is that I haven't anything in mind at the mo and it doesn't really appeal to me right now. I have to shorten my manuscript and I'm way behind schedule.
Whatever, I'll probably write one tomorrow I'm so indecisive but today it ain't on the agenda. :-)

I wonder what Anonymous was trying to say?

Lets hope it improves for you eh?
