This award about absent emotions is due Sunday 3 February 2019
THE NEVER BEEN PISSED AWARD
Emotions help us understand how we feel about a situation, person or thing. Without emotions to guide us, how do we make smart decisions?
Is logic enough… Is rationality even worth a damn without emotion to feel haooy, sad, content or disappointed about the outcome?
In this award we’re asking you to consider a character who can’t feel either specific emotions or all emotions in general.
How is their experience of the every day world?
Where do they struggle, or does a lack of emotion give them an advantage?
In the Never Been Pissed Award we ask you to consider all this and more when you write your story.
All genres are welcome and encouraged.
575 words max. No minimum word count.

A cover image is no longer a prerequisite, but we still love them. All cover images must be in 4:3 format landscape (not portrait). Most photo editing programs give you that option. If you’re using your phone, try the Snapseed app, it has lots of cool features as well. Another recommendation is Pixlr.
If including a cover image, ensure that you own the rights to that image or that you have permission, or that the image carries a free license. Make the filename of the image the name of your story and include a backlink to the source in the body text at the bottom of your story.
