Paleo Hidden Veg Pancakes: 3 Ingredients, Super Healthy and No Sugar!

The idea of these paleo hidden veg pancakes might sound strange, but bear with me!  We adore eggs in my family.

UK Writing Competitions: Flash Fiction, Short Stories and Novel Extracts (2019)

This weekend I submitted two pieces of flash fiction to UK writing competitions. I’ve also been beavering away on a 5000-ish word short story. It feels sooooo good to be writing again! I spent hours looking for competitions to enter, so thought I’d write up a list for others in the same boat.
 Please note: 
Always thoroughly read the guidelines before submitting your entry. I’ve only included comps open to unpublished writers.
 I shall update this list as and when new competitions are announced. Best of luck! UK Writing Competitions ending February 2019
