Latest Txtlit Competition
Competitions run every calendar month and each month we give you a new theme. You'll find the latest competition theme below.
Your competition theme for March is "Mismatch".
There are a variety of scenarios where we might come across a mismatch and each will create an opportunity for different emotions. A blind date perhaps, where the couple in question simply have nothing in common might trigger embarrassment or humour. A sporting event with one team outright favourites to win over their lesser competitors could have us cheering on the underdogs and expressing elation when they win.
Mismatch can be used as a verb as well as a noun. We could deliberately mismatch a number of things to create dramatic effect; to expose something or give an opponent a chance or just for fun.
What will your mismatch be and what will be it's effect or result?
