Announcing the 12th Annual Clarity of Night Short Fiction Contest. If you enjoy writing, this is a great way to flex your writing mucsles and get those creative juices flowing.
Pop over to Jason's site http://clarityofnight.blogspot.com/ and have a look. Contest rules are posted here http://clarityofnight.blogspot.com/2010/01/silhouette-short-fiction-contest.html
The basic idea is to write a piece of short fiction, no longer than 250 words, based on the picture that Jason posts. This contest is based on the picture shown here, titled "Silhouette".
My brother and two sisters and I have been entering this contest for a while now, and it's great fun. The anticipation is delicious. It's a very supportive environment in which to spread your wings.
Go on...submit an entry...you know you want to!
