And the 500-word challenge for February is…

 

…‘spotlight’.  Write up to 500 words around the theme ‘spotlight’ and send them to waxings.blog@gmail.com by midnight 4 March 2011 Australian Western Standard Time (GMT+8).

You’ll be in the running to win One Year To A Writing Life: Twelve Lessons to Deepen Every Writer’s Art and Craft by Susan Tiberghien and the glory of being only the third winner of the Waxings 500-word challenge.

Not bad for a free competition huh?

Our guest judge is now poring over the entries for January’s ‘night’ challenge and I don’t envy her job one little bit. Again, the entries were diverse and very creative takes on the theme and all skilfully rendered. It’s going to be difficult to pick a winner.

Thanks to the Waxers who have already taken the 500-word challenge. You’re a talented mob and I hope you continue to play. To everyone else, take a moment to check out the ‘night’ entries, then get cracking on ‘spotlight’! I’m looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

And just a quick reminder when you visit the site:

Waxings is all about sharing our work, getting feedback and providing encouragement to each other. Please have a read through some of the material in whatever category interests you and tell us what you think.

Was it written well? Was the story/poem compelling? What was your reaction? Would you like to read more? All constructive suggestions and advice welcome. Even just a quick click on ‘like’ if you thought it was good but can’t think of anything specific to say. It all helps.
