It's a funny time of year, isn't it? Some people take time off writing now as they have family commitments or are otherwise extra busy, some are enjoying a welcome break from work and using the time to get lots of writing done, and yet others are just eating cheese, reading and aren't 100% sure what day it is.
How about you? Are you writing? Have you made any writing related New Year resolutions or plans? Personally I'm not writing, but I am doing writing related admin and making plans for 2022 – and eating cheese, obviously!
Sadly it seems that Seven Days magazine will not continue. It feels like we're one step forward and two back with womag markets, doesn't it?
Free entry competition news
OK, it's not really news as I think I've mentioned all these in previous posts, but here's a bunch of free entry writing competitions. I think that should be enough to keep you busy until 2022!
This competition offers paid publication, plus lots of other stuff for science fiction of up to 8,000 words.
You could win an Arvon residential course with this short story competition.
The prize for this fable writing competition is £500.
Why does nobody ever offer cheese as a prize? I like cheese. And cake. And cheesecake.
