Will I never learn? For ages now, I have drafted all posts in Word and then copied them. Today I decided to cut corners and write the post directly on WordPress. Inevitably, I had all but finished it when some ghastly gremlin, grinning gleefully, zapped the whole thing.
If you like reading fantasy in general, and about dragons in particular, the above link will provide you with a feast. The contest has produced a fascinating variety of writings about dragons. Do try and read as many of them as you can, and provide feedback by liking or commenting on the ones you like or want to comment on. Not only is there a section relying on readership reaction, but no doubt this will also influence the decisions of the six judges regarding their general choices.
A link to my own entry is provided in the © illustration above, taken from the cover of my Forest Circle Quest. I found a section which is on the topic, reasonably complete in itself, and exactly on the 1200-word maximum. The only trouble is that it could act as a ‘spoiler’ for those wanting to read the book. Extracted from Chapter 30 of 40 chapters, it gives away several of the surprises, but I decided to take that chance.
P.S. As I tried to post this for the second time, the Internet went down. It transpires the lines had been worked on, so my connection had to be reconfigured. Not my day!
