    Hi all

    Its that time of year again where thoughts of getting over the christmas and new year by trying to write some prose.

    Im hoping to run it for a fourth year (time goes quick).

    To enter you either PM it to me in 2 or 3 pieces or email me (PM me for my email address). The limit is 750 words.

    The theme this year is going to be freestyle (as ever from me) but the passage must contain or start with "I was sitting at my desk".

    Deadline will be Sunday 22nd February in which i will post all the entries up and members then vote for their favorites.

    Any queries please do PM me - it is usually a very enjoyable competition 🙂

    Maybe I'll even start early to avoid the near-inevitable last minute scrambling for an idea.

    Maybe I'll just flap my wings and fly to the moon, too.

    🙂

    What if we wanted to write it in the third person? Could we say "He was sitting at his desk"?

    You'd better have 'our desks' then, otherwise it will be a tad uncomfortable.

    Can we have "he/she/it/character name was sitting at my/your/his/her/it's/character name's desk"? And can we use any tense, or just past?

    This is a real can of worms 🙂.
