Five Minute Fiction is here!
EDIT: THE WINNER IS NICOLE WOLVERTON @NICOLEWOLVERTON CONGRATS, NICOLE!
Leah Peterson (my publisher-sibling at DMP) hosts a contest on her blog every Tuesday called FIVE MINUTE FICTION. The idea is to take a prompt and write a short based on the prompt for FIVE MINUTES ONLY. Then you post it and either Leah or a guest judge decides which are his/her five favourites. Then the community votes for the winner among those five favourites, and the winner… wins!
Only tomorrow, the contest is migrating HERE!
Yup, that’s right, the Five Minute Fiction contest being hosted by me. Cool, eh?
So how does it work?
Tomorrow, at 1:30 EST, I will edit this blog entry. Yes, this blog entry right here. And I will edit it so that underneath of this explanationy stuff, there will be a ONE WORD prompt and a PICTURE. But I won’t do it until 1:30.
It’ll be up for 15 minutes (5 minutes to write, 10 minutes for life/technology issues, etc.). At 1:30, you can start to write. Then at 1:35 you have to stop and post your short in the comments section below. (I’ve turned off the moderating comment feature for the day).
When it hits 1:45, I will pick 5 finalists out of the participants. Sometime in the next 24 I will put up all 5 finalists and a poll for you to vote for your favourites. On Wednesdy, a winner will be announced!
The prize for winning? KNOWING YOU ARE AWESOME.
And of course, check out the other four rocking hosts for the 5 Minute Fiction Blog Tour.
