Harper Collins, in conjunction with Indiblogger, held a short story competition. To enter, one had to submit the idea for a story and get people to vote for the idea. I can honestly say I enjoyed the challenge. There were some good discussions in the forum. Here's one - a discussion on "short stories" by the editor of Harper Collins, India.
The competition is almost drawing to a close - just a week to go. My story idea titled, A Fait Accompli, was well received and I read some
amazing ideas from others. Will definitely buy the book when it comes
out in the last quarter of 2013.
Last minute votes for my story idea welcome here
