  1. YAY!!!!! I’m so excited!!!

  2. Reblogged this on The Quill Wielder and commented:

    Check it out people!!

  3. I will reblog your post. I can’t wait to post my story and read all the scathing remarks ( only joking ) i hope they know its my first story 🙂

  4. Reblogged this on Evolution.Of.Insanity v2 and commented:

    Yo everyone! I’m currently entering a writing contest, no doubt I’ll lose because there are far better writers out there than myself but feel free to join and also lose… or win! w00t!

  5. A short story on any stuff? 🙂 Can’t wait to get started!

  6. Well, there’s no harm in trying. I just hope that none of the judjes are homophobe. Don’t worry, there’s nothing explicit in my story.

  7. Di you get my story DJ i sent about an hour ago.

  8. Good luck everyone. It’s going to be so great seeing what style of writing people have and what their imaginations can come up with.

  9. Reblogged this on Cheapass Fiction and commented:
    I am always up for a writing contest, but this comes at a particularly good time. I’ve been trying to claw my way out of a slump since putting aside my last project, and there’s nothing like some good old competition to get me moving!

  10. Reblogged this on isleofbooks and commented:
    If you heart desires, enter. I’m so excited to be one of the judges!

  11. I yet to submit my story…got jitters lol

    • Don’t be Nervous Vee… Your Amazing Soul Shines through anything you ever Write


      • Awww, thank you so much for your sweet encouraging words DJ. I needed that.

        • You’re Welcome

          Never over think things like this… That is a Human Trap

          Trust me… Confidence doesn’t just come from Success, it also comes From Doing/Action

          So do, and do, and do, don’t think about it… You’ve got enough Mind Power to operate in Neutral, and still make Smart Decisions… Following Passions is a Matter of The Heart and Soul… Leave The Mind Behind… It’s just there to Support The Rest… It is not the “Soul Ruler” of who we are


  12. Hi,

    I was going to submit one I wrote for BBC radio (rejected) but it’s too long at nearly 2,000 words. It’s a shame because it funny! I’ll see if I have time to write something before the 14th,

  13. Hi DarkJade, I sent you an email with my entry yesterday 🙂

    • Hi Anna, I’m glad you Replied here… I’m having some problems with WordPress, I currently can’t Reply to other People’s Blogs (I replied to your Post yesterday and it wouldn’t go through) Also I can’t seem to be able to Create New Forum Threads, so I can’t ask for Help

      I didn’t Receive your E-mail, so I’m not sure if I’m having E-mail issues as well, because there were many E-mails I should have gotten today from WordPress, that I didn’t

      If you could Re-Email me your Submission to My Main E-mail Addreass DarkJade68@gmail.com, I’d really Appreciate it… Also send it to JadeBlue68@yahoo.com as well… Those are My Personal E-mails, so hopefully they’ll work

      I’m so Glad You’re Submitting an Entry, You are a Brilliant Writer, Good Luck


  14. Oh lovely! I have something, that I planned to use for another contest, but got confused and of course missed the last possible day where I could submit my story. I will read and maybe edit it again and give it another try here! Thank you for that opportunity!

  15. I just saw this DJ and now you have me thinking of trying out 🙂

  16. Hi,
    Can we submit more than one entry?



  17. Question-Does an entry get disqualified if the story is over 1200 but under 1500 words.

    • Yeah, we try to keep it at 1,200 or less… There are a few that are a little over… Remember, it can be a “Short Story” or “Part of a Story”, so don’t worry about Including the Whole Piece… I can also let people know it’s just Part of the Story

      Good Luck
