I came second in Mitch Lavender’s Grate Righter Bad Speler Conetest 2012!
This was an unusual competition because the objective was to write a complete story in under 100 words using the most atrocious spelling possible.
Unfortunately mine wasn’t quite good – or bad? – enough to win. The judge, a teacher, said that they really liked the story because it was “clear cut, with a beginning, middle and end and a twist, all in under 100 words” but that “the spelling wasn’t quite as imaginative as the winner, which placed it second using the composite score.”
So, I guess I’ll just have to get practicing my bad spelling for next year… 🙂
In the meantime, I look forward to wearing my ‘I read banned books’ T shirt and reading Mitch’s anthology Death Zone & Other Stories.
Oh – here’s my wee story, but I warn you, it might give you a sore head.
