So, in the comments of a recent post writer and friend, Ian Sales, challenged me to “friendly” race of sorts. The reasoning is to get both of us writing more short fiction this year.
1/ Contest runs between January 1 and December 31 2013.
2/ Each writer gets one point for a story completed and submitted for publication for the first time.
3/ Each writer gets one further point when a story is accepted for publication for the first time.
4/ Loser buys the winner dinner at 2014 Eastercon here in Glasgow (which at least gives us both a better than decent chance of a proper feed at the end of it all).
That’s all there is to it. We’re going to update the comments of this thread with a running total (although I note, wistfully, that it may take me a little while to get into it what with all the long fiction stuff I need to complete).
