Remember the Readers' Digest 100-word competition?

edited March 2018 in Writing
It was ages ago. In fact, I'd forgotten all about it.

Here's the shortlist of 3 (chosen from thousands):


Hmmm. One seems to be playing the political card, one doesn't seem to be a story and one seems very familiar...

Any thoughts?


  • I thought they were ok. None of them were mine though so that went against them. :)
  • I wasn't teribly impressed with those.
  • I only thought one of the adults shortlist deserved to be there, was very disappointed.
  • It was so long ago I can't even remember if I entered or not!
  • I did (or maybe I didn't. No, I think I entered the Daily Mail 100-word one).

    Did anyone recognise the third one? I am sure I have read that before somewhere.
  • I also entered the Daily Mail comp (and thought mine was better than the winner! :))

    None of these three look familiar. The idea of a beginning, middle and end doesn't seem to matter any more, except in No 3, which I like.
  • I voted for no.3 as that was the only one that was reasonable.
