150 word stories about random topics that are hand picked and judged by an independent and hopefully impartial adjudicator.
Query: over the last couple of Briefs I've spotted that some entries are 'missing' key grammatical words (poss through typo?) - am I being nit-picky in thinking that they're not 'really' 150 words in that case???
They're most likely accidental typos that have slipped through the net. Sadly we usually only get a short time frame to get the entries posted so the attention to detail when we copy them across isn't always as good as it could be. In the spirit of the competition though, we ought not to judge typos too harshly - it's the taking part that counts!
LOL - yes, I agree, I'm just being a bit pedantic aren't I?!?! It's the proof-reader in me!! (Puh-lease don't let there be any typos in mine now!!)
