Following The Rules  May 14, 2007 - December 1, 2007

Reading and Deliberating


So many people don't seem to read the submission guidelines before submitting their works...

Create a poem or story decribing 'a day in the life of...' one of the following:

- Purple kettle
- A monkey with a migraine
- An empty tea cup
- A cat with no tail
However I want you to try to make it so I can't tell which one you choose until the last line.

You must include at least 3 of the following ten words:
- Catnip
- Water
- Sleeping tablets / pills
- Table
- Dragon
- Crystal
- Bell
- Jungle
- Vodka
- Drum

Please do NOT use any swear words or anything of a sexual nature

Being English I cant give cash prizes so instead the winners get to choose a book of their choice (that I can find in England) to the value of up to �15
The runners up can choose a book of their choice to the value of up to �10
(If you are a winner in England let me know the book store you shop in to claim book vouchers to the same value)
