Grants for the Arts

I spent all of last night doing the form and I really think that they do give out money... they just make the forms really hard and difficult to understand so they can bin them whenever they come through the postbox.
How Shit.
Anyway, I need to add a peice of prose about 1000 - 2000 words long and a scene from a play.
Any thoughts on what fodder to give them? no point in adding toyland BTW cos thy have a link to it in the proposal.

What about a chapter from your novel? OK, I have only read chapters one and two (which were probably ten drafts ago now!) but they were really good.

And I think a scene from Sing Sing would be good, as it is more developed.

Hey, can you take a photocopy of your grant form before you send it off, so I can look at it (in order to write my own?)

Only problem with this is which chapter? Toyland is chapter 6 of my novel so perhaps I could just let them have that? and its like 5000 words long rather than 1000! I wrote a short story the other day and i recon i might send tham that... is it ok if i email it to you lucy and you have a look?
