Default Writing Competition!

This is an extract from a UK newspaper, the "Mail on Sunday". Each year they have a Novel Competition where you submit the opening lines of a novel. This year the details are:

"To enter this year's competition, write the opening lines of a novel - between 50 and 150 words - introducing into the story or setting the word "tip". It could be, for example, a tip-off, tiptoeing, the tip of the iceberg - whatever fires your imagination. The winner will receive £400 in book tokens and a place on an Arvon writing course; the runners-up will get book tokens ranging from £150 to £300. The judges are novelists John Mortimer, Michael Ridpath and Fay Weldon.

Send your entry with your name, address, telephone number and email address on the same page as your opening lines, to arrive by 15 October 2007, to:
The Mail on Sunday Novel Competion
PO Box 200
Kent ME1 9AH"

Good luck

Thanks for the tip-off!
