sharpen your brains

a new short fiction contest at Clarity of Night!

from Jason:

"Whether you're an old friend, or new to The Clarity of Night, welcome!

Now that the curtains of winter are settling on the world (at least where I am), perhaps you need a creative spark to keep the fires warm. You've come to the right place!

Using the photograph above for inspiration, compose a short fiction piece of no more than 250 words in any genre or style. Send your entry to me by email at jevanswriter at yahoo dot com before 11:00 p.m., Wednesday, January 10th (Eastern Time, United States). I'd prefer attachments formatted in Microsoft Word or Word Perfect, but if you have something more exotic, you can paste the text into the body of an email. Each entry will be posted and indexed."

Thanks for the promo, Anne! I really miss you this time around.

Thanks Sandra. :)

sandra, i'm still recovering from the last one. :D no really, jason did all the work. and it's an enormous amount of work. i don't know how he does it.


jason, i'm going to miss not being involved, but i'm going to really enjoy watching from afar. :D
think you'll beat the old record of 100 entries? i'll bet you do.

jason evans said...

Oh man, I hope not Anne. The 100 entries we dealt with last time pretty much wiped me out. I'll take whatever comes though. ;)

I always loves these. The picture this time is a toughy. It will be interestiing to see what everyone does with it.

anne frasier said...

jason, take your vitamins. and nodoze. :D

jaye: i agree that's a tough image. one thing immediately comes to my mind, and it will be interesting to see if most people think the same thing -- or if they move past the obvious. i still think about your entry from last time. that was so good.

Thanks, Anne! I'm glad it made an impression. I'm still waiting for the kind of imspiration I had last time to arrive. ;)

Jaye Wells said...

Or "inspiration," whichever works.

anne frasier said...
