First Friday deadline!

Any takers for this month's fiction-writing contest? The deadline is today.

The parameters are simple but challenging: 500 words; four ingredients: a setting, a character or characters, a conflict and a resolution; and no anthropomorphism of the birds.

For inspiration, peruse the previous winning entries!

Sadly, no one sent a story this month, Clare. Any tips for generating more participation?

I'm not sure Amy, I was hoping that lots of people would enjoy the challenge as I do. I found writing fiction and trying to fit a story into 500 words a wonderous exercise for writing. I thought maybe the "going to let the Canadian win again" statement would inspire a few people. Perhaps one of the writing blogs, such as Whorled Leaves might post something, to get others interested.

How about if I say "I OWN First Friday and there is no one out there good enough to knock me off".

That was awesome, Clare. My cackles of glee alarmed my coworkers.

Just to let you know Amy that the two books arrived today. They look wonderful, and I'm looking forward to exploring them more this evening.

Thanks again!
