MWC dialogue sprint

29th September 

Maximum 200 words, but can be under. Imagine two strangers meet in a bar and strike up a conversation, however they are either famous characters or dead. William Shakespeare meets The lone ranger, Sherlock Holmes meets Del Trotter, Robin Hood meets Danny la Rue. Get the drift? It is your choice to pick your characters, but the judges will be looking out for well known and consistency in dialogue. No narrative will be accepted.

You have until midnight BST 1st October to get your entry to Fire-fly http://www.mywriterscircle.com/index.php?action=profile;u=5870




Prize:  How to Write a Children’s Book from WCCL

Judge: Thatollie and Ma100

Does the title count in the word count for the 100 word dash?
