Here’s another of my short stories that I entered into a writing competition with no success. Competition was called The Thunderbolt Prize. Sadly I have yet to crack the competition egg! Please enjoy my award winning thriller/suspense story… The Early Beach Runner. P.s. I really suck at present tense so I do apologise in advance.
I entered this piece into an Overland Literary Magazine writing competition (a bit ambitious I know!) Of course it failed, but hey, you’ve got to be in it to win it right?
So in this one I attempted to step outside my comfort zone and create something completely opposite to what I would usually write. So here is my non-magical short story written in first person, present tense. It’s slightly disjointed and who knows if I kept up the present tense throughout the whole thing. Here’s to failing at writing competitions!!
