Wanted: Judges for 2011 Fun Writing Competition

We’re looking for judges for either contemporary or paranormal/historical/science fiction stories. There are no perks in this assignment such as kissing the judges, in case you were wondering. 🙂 Last year the Fun Writing Competition was a success even though it took some would-be writers a while to get going. You all had a great time critiquing the final two entries and…

Fun Writing Competition – Extension of closing date

I mentioned in my weekly update last Sunday, July 11, that I was disappointed with the number of entries submitted for the Fun Writing Competition so far, and I indicated at that time I was considering either cancelling the competition, or extending the closing date. I thought it would be unfair to those who had already submitted their stories to cancel without giving the competition a chance, so I have…

Fun Writing Competition

Tam gave me the most wonderful idea when she sent me a gerbil shifter (or maybe it was a hamster shifter) story that she had written. It was so good I thought, why don’t we have a fun writing competition this summer? Instead of going to the beach, lying out in the sun while someone oiled your body as you read a book, you could take your computer with you to the…
