Here's a secret for you all to keep:

Last year, I was a judge for this competition. Out of the 50 or so stories I had to judge I can honestly say that a lot of the writers on this blog (judging by the settings and the 100-word stories appearing) would have a very good chance of reaching the final, or even winning it! Please folks, get entering and you might scoop first prize.
