Sex... Ok, now that's I've got your attention...
The entries have trickled in the past three weeks since I first announced the contest on this blog. It has reached the point where the Land's Edge judging team meets to read and rate the stories only to end up hopped up on strong coffee, stuffing our faces with Apple Fritters and Boston Creams. Not a pretty sight...
This will be the last announcement for the contest (except for maybe a passing remark the middle of this week) so click on the link above to connect to the contest information, rules, etc (pay special attention to the 'non-spitting on judges rule'...though if it helps on getting more entries I say..."spit away, my friends"...just give me a bit of warning to throw on a rain slicker, rubber boots and ski goggles...)
The lure, of course, are the three novels available to the top three entries. These are books of varying topics of different sizes and shapes. You can link to the prize information here. Remember that anyone can enter regardless of gender, religion, left or right handedness, wearing boxers or briefs or going commando. I'm hoping that the lack of entries is an indication that you all are hard at work polishing your stories to a fine shine just waiting until moments before the Sunday, June 20th deadline...that's my story and I'm sticking to it!
The days are counting down, so get the stories entered. Consider it a public service to keep myself and the rest of the judging staff out of the Tim Horton's. If you're too busy to pen I story...we understand totally. We've all got kids,
I'm asking everyone, though, to advertise the contest to 'deepen the pool of stories'. Mention it on your blogs or, for those of you using the Evil Twitter technology, please Tweet the contest to your followers (I've only got 32 followers, where I know that some of you have hundreds...) I'd like to thank those of you pimping the contest if I haven't done so previously. Networking is good.
Wow, I've really rambled on here...reaching to the limits of unsightly begging. Pffth! I'd wear a fez on my head if it would help. This secondary topic has gotten kind of long-winded, leaving little space for the main topic. I guess I'll post that one another day.
