A Liver Birds Eye View
This was a short narrative written for Liverpool's Capital of Culture Year (2008). The entry could be no longer than 500 words, which is roughly the size of an A4 sheet of paper - so by the time you've set the scene and introduced your first character you've used 487 words! My inspiration came in the form of a Liver Bird...what if it could speak? What would It say? I imagined that the iconic Liver Bird would have a typical scouse sense of humour. My Liver Bird made it to the final - just narrowly pipped to the post. Can't win 'em all hey!
