Short Fiction Contest

I’m a little behind at catching up with my writer friend’s blogs and I’m glad I did some reading today. Seems fellow Pennsylvanian and friend, Jason is holding another short fiction writing contest at his blog, Clarity of Night.

Jason does a wonderful job keeping writers inspired and this contest is no exception. He’s using a beautiful picture for your writing inspiration. Go check out his contest.

I’m inspired and I found it just in time; there is still a week left before the deadline. Now we’ll see if I’m as good at whipping out the words under deadline as I am at weilding the whip at the freelance contest participants. Good luck everyone!

Not sure I'll make this deadline, I'm overloaded with book reviews right now. LOL Thanks for the luck, though.

Short fiction has never been my forte - I'm much too long winded for that! Give it a roll, Joanne. I'll bet you come up with something good.

I'm longwinded too, Betsy...as you can tell by my blog posts. LOL Never did get anything written for this; there never seems to be enough hours in the day.
