Passage by Ravi Subramanian:
What the hell is going on between my husband and that bitch?’ Maya’s patience was at its lowest ebb and she was ready to burst.

Sanjay knew that she was serious. ‘Look, Maya. There is nothing going on between the two of them. Just a little bit of healthy flirting, I’d say.’

‘Flirting? Healthy flirting? Really Sanjay . . .’ she rolled her eyes in disgust. ‘That’s what you men call it? There is nothing healthy about flirting, Sanjay, not for a married man.

Healthy flirting is a term introduced by perverted men who want to lend legitimacy to their extramarital dalliances. Flirting invariably has a sexual connotation to it.’ She got up from her seat and walked around the room gesticulating and muttering something to herself. Suddenly she stopped, turned back, looked at Sanjay and asked, ‘Did my husband sleep with her? You are his friend. Did he ever tell you anything about it?’

(Passage from Ravi Subramanian’s The Bestseller She Wrote)

  1. When is it going to take place again because this time I missed it but next time i would like to try.

  2. I had submitted my entry. When are the results due?

  3. 1. About the word limit i.e. maximum of 2500 word. That means approximately 10 pages. Am I correct?
    2. The passage by author should be used. Should it be used as one block or I can break that into multiple and used in the story?
