Are you tired of writing a blog for only clicks? Here’s an opportunity to win $50 cash for posting creative writing. I’m sponsoring another writing competition at the
Here is one of my favorite stories submitted by Daniel during my most recent literary project:
Consider this project as an opportunity to have your ‘blog – writing’ critiqued, reviewed and judged by a literary genius and forum regular Old Mack
Here’s what I’ve asked writers to do:
Create and develop a character based on the names of the remainder of the storms in the 2007 Atlantic Hurricane Season.Submissions may only be posted during the hours in which a powerful storm is beyond the tropical phase– when meteorologists consider ‘he’ or ‘she’ as a “Category 1 storm” or above. All entries must be made in the craigslist writers forum under the submitted title of the named storm, when there is an eye with winds above 74 mph.
Only written ‘dialogue’ from previously described character- storms may take place in the plot as the season progresses. (For instance, it’s already too late for new participants of the project to write the character of Dean into their short stories.)
After each storm has faded from Hurricane status, no longer may the characters be ‘described and developed’. No words outside of quotes may be written about that storm– only conversations with new characters in the development stage may occur in forming plots.The trick to winning is– characters developed during hurricane season must be connected through dialogue and a common plot. The best overall plot wins a soaking $50 in cash from me. It’s not much, but it’s better than a poke in the eye from a thunderstorm.
A minimum of three characters must be created by participants during the Atlantic Hurricane Season.Post your submissions under the name of the storms during appropriate times. Writers will have to register at the craigslist forum so that I can appropriately verify the winner via e-mail address.
(Unanimous posters will not be considered for review by the contest judge.)
If there are no more storms this year, then I keep my $50!
