Greetings, Insecure Writers – WRiTECLUB19 is just around the corner. In fact the official announcement was made on Monday, so anything I’m saying is announced at DL Hammons’ website far more authoritatively.
What is WriteClub19?
I thought most of my insecure writing friends might like to take advantage of the opportunity to submit one or more short stories, max 500 words. You send them in under a pseudonym. They will be judged, they will be voted on. And the thirty best will go forward, FIGHT CLUB style, to a knock-out round to decide the winner.
Even if you don’t submit a story, you can vote!
March 4th – WRiTE CLUB contest official announcement
March 18th – Submissions period opens.
April 14th – Submission period closes.
April 29th – 1st WRiTE CLUB bout
I have taken a step forward, and volunteered to be one of the initial readers. We vet and vote on all the entries. I’m not open to bribes, so don’t bother, and anyway I’m only a small cog in the decision process.
So, come on friends, get a 500 word entry together, and go forth and spread thy insecurity!Submit one or more short stories, max 500 words. Send them in under a pseudonym. They will be judged, they will be voted on - and the thirty best will go forward, FIGHT CLUB style, to the knock-out round #writeclub19 Click To Tweet
IWSG Question of the Month
This is my post for the Insecure Writers Support group’s monthly blog hop. You can sign up here Insecure Writers Support Group, and also sign up for the monthly newsletter which tells you, among other things, the theme for the monthly post, should you choose to follow it. And the question is….
Whose perspective do you like to write from best, the hero (protagonist) or the villain (antagonist)? And why?
Do I prefer to write protagonist or antagonist?
Well, it depends on who they are. Mostly I enjoy my protags, but I must admit, I don’t mind working with Kaa Birith’s perspective – he’s one slimy b******d. I suppose he helps me get out my frustration with politicians.
What do you think?
