Do you have a sneaking weakness for those naughty adverbs? If so, Christopher Fielden – creator of the slightly mad but entirely fun To Hull & Back humorous short story competition – is running an Adverb Writing Challenge.
Entry is FREE and the brief is to write a story of up to 100 words ‘crammed with as many adverbs as you can’. A guilty treat maybe! All stories will be published on his website, on a dedicated page if he receives 20, but if he gets a hundred entries he promises to publish them in an anthology. There is no deadline since, if he receives a flood of entries, he’ll start again with the next hundred stories.

Why not let rip with that purple prose – knowing Chris, the more purple the better.
