We get the keys to our new house today! Eek – exciting. Good job we’re not actually moving until next week though because it is POURING with rain and has been all morning (and for about the last 4 days). Ho hum….
Yesterday I took my Dad to the dentist again and availed myself of all their lovely magazines while I was waiting.
The latest Reader’s Digest has got… the RESULTS of their 100-word short story competition! But you don’t have to rush out and buy a copy – you can look on their website here.
The Adult winner is…er… well, different! See what you think.
Reader’s Digest are printing one ‘commended’ story every day on the website (but as each one is accompanied by a photo, I assume they will contact you to let you know and ask for a picture, first). It’s not clear whether there’s any payment for that – but if they publish your entry in the magazine, they will pay £70, which is definitely worth having.
Reader’s Digest is a jolly little magazine, I’ve decided. It’s quite cheery, with all its jokes and ‘human interest’ articles. Apparently (I read), it’s not good for you to read a newspaper first thing in the morning because it can depress you for the rest of the day but something like RD is quite uplifting.
This sounds like I’m on commission doesn’t it? (Although I did return the ‘YES’ envelope for one of their cash prize draws lately, so it’s best to stay in their good books…!)
PS: There’s still time to put a quick comment on my Complementary World Book Night post here. I’ll be drawing the winner at 6pm tonight!
