Clarity of night writing contest

Okay this is my third or 4th post in one day so I will make this short and sweet.

Are you done laughing at that comment now????

It's okay I can wait.

(enter Jeopardy music here)

Okay, just to let anyone that may be interested know, Jason over at The Clarity of night is hosting another short fiction contest. I myself have taken part in the last two, and find them to be quite interesting. The idea is to write a short story of no more than 250 words, based on a picture that he has posted on his site.

"Just 250 words" your saying?

"Then BD, how in the HELL did YOU participate" your asking?

I know, I know what you mean.

Apparently hell did freeze over on those two occasions and the pope took the day off cause yes indeed I DID manage to stay under the word count.

There were even unconfirmed reports of pigs flying on those days, but who knows if they were true or not. I myself am leaning towards 'yes'.

Anyways, click the link above or over on my sidebar if this interests you at all. Even if you don't participate, come check out the stories, many of them are quite good.

Shutting up now, for the day.

I'm glad you saw the pigs too. I thought I was going to have to go back on the meds.

My but you've been unusually chatty today!

BTW... I'm a member of the nation of Islam so I don't see pork.

BD, I read the rules, and I think you're in luck. Titles do not count against the words total.

Michael Thomas said...

I may even get to join this one.

Didn't I see the pigs hanging out with the little pink elephants, or is that just the flashbacks kicking in again?

James Burnett said...

Sounds like fun. I'm gonna check it out. BTW, I think I found the pigs you and Mist1 saw. They were delicious.

And Happy New year, BD. Keep up the good work here.

Thanks for the mention, BD!! Yeah, that word limit is tough, but it's amazing how much punch you can craft in 250 words. ;)

Mist: not only saw them, talked to them. Not only talked to them, they talked back! something about "yeah we are pigs and maybe we do stink, but you are an ass....at least we can take a bath!,,,,,,,,we won't but we could."

Bice: can I quote you on that "unusually chatty" that would seem to imply that I am NOT normally as wordy as some people like to suggest that I am when it comestomakingapointor tellinga story that has struck my fancy at the time I am sitting in front of the puter. Uggggh, never mind, no quoting necessary!

Sarc: you may be onto something.....so what do you think of the title 'once upon a time there were three little indians starving to death........................................and after recounting the minute by minute details of his life the indian died at the ripe old age of 133?"

follow it up with "the end" and I am in like flynn. Hmmmmm I remember hearing where that phrase came from but it escapes me now. Prolly for the better.

Michael I hope you do. Pink elephants? now that is just silly!

JB: Did you bring home a donkey bag by chance?

Jason: My pleasure. I wouldn't recommend it if I didn't really enjoy them. Thank YOU for the work you put into them.

No you may not quote me. The quotation marks on either side of me makes me claustrophobic.
