4 thoughts on “The Duets & Duvets Award Part 2

  1. If we didn’t enter part one, do we use another writer’s shortlisted story from part one? 🙂

  2. Does part 2 have to be a date or tryst as well? Or just from the perspective of the second person involved in the first story, even if time had lapsed?


    1. HI Charlie,

      You’re right, it doesn’t technically have to be set at the same time as the first part, but it can be.
