  • Noir themed writing exercise... forthcoming!

    We're just in the process of thinking through a NOIR-based writing exercise, likely to be the usual 8 pages, and then it's all down to the entrants imagination -- as ever -- on what kind of noir it is you wish to run with, western, neo, old school, or something entitely new.

    I've been full of flu over the last week so just waiting for that to clear and will then hopefully set up a proper thread with FULL DETAILS

    Please start thinking about all-things-noirish, nightmarish, any other "ishes" that take you fancy, and by all means use this thread in the interim to post any comments.

    It'll help to warm this little event up and build expectation in the meantime.

          Plenty of animals in noir, so you'll be okay with that Richmond.

                          Good stuff, welcome everybody, and let's hope we get even more sign-ups.

                          Going to set this up very soon in a new thread, with specific details and dates.

                            Okay, as of today (a sunny Tuesday 2nd April in UK...) we're up and running and there's a new thread for the actual competition.

                            I've also put up an advert in the ANNOUNCEMENTS section. That should show up later today... once it's cleared by a MOD.

                            If anybody wishes to change their signature space (please see what Dpaterson, the co-admin in this compet. -- has written in his!) to show details of this exercise and spread the good word, that would be much appreciated, the more we attract the better.

                            We've got THREE WEEKS to play with, entries to be in by 21st April 2013, Midnight.
