Orange Fiction: Paragraph Competition with The Guardian

The Guardian are running a great competition for any budding writers.  You need to write the first paragraph (150 words max) of a book with the title of Just Ourselves.

The competition and details can be found here.  The top ten will be short-listed and then Kate Mosse will pick out a winner and two runner's up.  The top prize includes a trip to the Orange Fiction Awards, a hotel stay, the short listed books and a HTC Desire Black Edition phone.  For a bit of guidance last year's winners can be found here.

Entries must be in by the 24th May leaving only 8 more days to enter.  So you'll have to be quick for this great opportunity.  I had a go at writing something yesterday during my lunch hour but think I will use this as an entry to the Writing Buddies anthology instead.  I think I will try and write an opening paragraph for a project I have had in mind for some time and who knows, even if it doesn't win this competition it may encourage me to get more ideas on paper.
