You are all probably sick to death of the letter combination NaNoWriMo. Sorry! Just know that by talking about it here and having your encouragement I just might actually achieve the goal, something I would’ve though impossible a mere six days ago and would be without this blog.
Anyhow, there are a couple writing opportunities I came across in the past couple days I thought you might want to know about. The first was found on Endicott Redux, Endicott Studio’s excellent blog. There is a call for submissions from Cinnamon Press for poems that “that tell any kind of story – old and new, real and imagined, fairytales, myths, urban legends, about people, places, artifacts – in fresh ways” for their upcoming anthology In the Telling. I know a few of you write poetry, so I figured you might want to give it a try.
Secondly, Jason over at The Clarity of Night is hosting another one of his excellent contests starting Monday. He provides a photograph and entrants are asked to provide 250 words inspired by it. I even earned an honorable mention the one time for my story Hungry like the Wolf. I’m gonna enter this time, even though nanowrimo is going on. I think I can manage 250 words :). Anyhow, check back there tomorrow.
Oh, there was one more thing I wanted to tell you all about. I found a hilarious Terry Pratchett short story yesterday titled Troll Bridge which stars our favorite barbarian Cohen the Barbarian. This story is hilariously fantastic. Trust me.
