WRiTE CLUB 2012! (a contest)

Kind of stoked about this:


I'm new to writing contests but I'm about to give this one a try.  After all, I have a few story ideas so why not take a break from editing?

To my understanding, interested parties will submit a story of no greater than 500 words (this is less than a page for you laymans / laywomans).  Then DL Hammons will pick two at random to square off anonymously and be judged by readers and the winner will move to the ... Just click the link and read what he says about it!

Upside:  Winner gets uber-exposure and no gold coins.
Downside:  Not every submission will even see the light of day...

I want to write a story about a [I must remove this text as it breaks a rule of WRiTE CLUB!!!! I'm sorry!]

First rule of write club...


  1. Cool! I'm definitely interested in reading your submission. Sounds intriguing.

    Thanks for the follow! I'm here to reciprocate. :)

  2. You'll have a good time with it! The first round had some great entries.

  3. I'll cheer for team David from the audience :)

  4. @Dezmond, thanks!!

    @Hart, this will be my first try at a story this short... I'm noticing how quickly one runs out of space in only 500 words! :(
    I'm coping by drastically compressing words and sentences. For example, that last sentence would have read: I'm copallyessing wordences.
    Pretty good, right?

  5. This sounds like a great competition. I wish you all the luck and success possible. Thank you for following my blog.

  6. Intriguing...I am curious about this one, too! Flash fiction is quick...I haven't done it, but you really have to condense it, I guess open in an action scene ;D Good luck!
