Great minds think alike? Sarah at Fallen Formulates Fiction is also holding a writing contest to celebrate hitting a followers milestone. Choose from a list of six writing prompts, write a flash fiction piece (up to 750 words) and submit it by Friday, March 26 for a chance to win some pretty fabulous prizes. Read about the details HERE.

If you need a little more lead time, my Eleventy-one Followers Celebration Writing Contest has a deadline of Sunday, April 4. Submit a dialogue-driven piece, up to 700 words, that involves negotiation and persuasion. Novel excerpts are fine, if they can stand alone. The genre and content is up to you. I only ask that you keep it clean: Please no erotica, horror or R-rated language. I'm giving away critiques or copy editing (I edit professionally for a scholarly journal), as well as some pretty awesome books. Click HERE for more details.

And don't forget my microfiction challenge! It's a fun way to join the ranks of the published!

Are you considering my contest, but feel a little low on ideas? Would some writing prompts help get the juices flowing?

  4. Lots of great contests are hanging out in the blogosphere right now. I wish I had time to write something to enter, but I've set a strict guideline for myself for Book #2. I don't want to lose my mojo!

  10. If we have our entry for your contest ready, would you like us to send it along now or wait for a little while longer? I hate to seem pushy. :)

  11. I'm planning to join in but haven't gotten down to business, yet. Too much coffee shop confessing and eavesdropping!

  12. Sarahjayne: Feel free to send it whenever you're ready. Others have done so, so you wouldn't be the first.

    Mary: just 12 more days till the deadline!
