  • Halloween contest 2020

    Plenty of horror has been happening this year already, but this is the good kind, the entertaining kind, the distract yourself from reality kind.

    8 pages max, by close of day Wednesday 28th October. That'll give us 3 days to read the entries and vote. Why before Halloween? Because after Halloween, the spark of enthusiasm will die and everyone will wander away. Strike while it's still hot!

    Send text files, PDF files, whatever you can export, to dpaterson57 at gmail.com

    You don't have to use Halloween motifs and tropes if you don't want to, if straight horror is your thing, go for it.

    Indicate if you might be interested by replying here. The good old days of 20+ entries are gone, but who knows, we might get a quorum.

    Update: Will has generously offered to give a year's subscription to Done Deal Professional to the winner!

    Another update: for posterity, the entries thread is here and the results thread is here.

      I don't think I stand a ghost of a chance winning a horror writing contest but I'll give it a scream.

            Hit a bit of a stumbling block... Third attempt to break it out is looking like a viable idea for a feature

                  Just saying, 7 days left till deadline, including today.

                  Number of submissions received: 4 (updated)

                  And that came out of left field.

                        For what it's worth, I've sent one in. Thanks again.

                            Time marches on, 3 days to go till deadline, including today.

                            Still plenty of time to swing your bat and knock the ball out the park! (or insert metaphor of your choice here.)

                              Still hoping for another 1 or 2 last minute entries, to make this a broader and more enjoyable experience!
