Following on from my recent February win for my short story ‘freeze-frame’, I decided to add another entry for the March competition. I’ve already entered one story but you can enter up to three giving you more chance to win. The theme this month is superstitious. If you want to join in the fun head over to MorgEn Bailey’s page to submit your story. The rules are pretty simple, keep to the theme and keep your writing to 100 words exactly. Title is excluded from the word count.
