Illustration Friday: Scary
I'm pleased that this week's Illustration Friday theme is "scary". A small scare is good for the soul.
I've just written a mildly scary story for the Spectator's competition number 2721. The brief is to write a short story (150 words maximum) containing the following juicy words: rebarbative, solipsistic, lapidary, consequential, plangent, and gibbous. Mine is about a surly jeweller who doesn't believe in werewolves. If you want to have a go (or give it to your English class for an exercise), click here and scroll down for instructions. You could win 25 pounds.
