HG Wells writing competition demands handwriting, no science fiction; no one applies – Boing Boing.

Handwritten manuscripts?

No Science Fiction?

Please. No wonder they got no entries.

I handwrite as few things as possible anymore. I broke my wrist about ten years ago and I lost some legibility. NOT that I would be doing things differently today without that event, but it did push me to drastically doing more on the computer.

That idea of creative writing being linked to writing by hand is a bunch of bunk. I write because you think. I think because I write. Writing on the computer is still writing.

And then there is the no science fiction. uhhhhh a contest in honor of H. G. Wells with no sci-fi entries? That’s just wrong.
