  • Halloween Benderspink read contest

    I was thinking of a summer contest butt I'm too lazy to host a contest.

    First place prize for the Halloween writing contest is a fifty page read.

    Second place prize for the Halloween writing contest is a ten page read.

    Third place prize for the Halloween writing contest is a ten page read.

    Plenty of time.


    Good Luck

    What???? No Independence Day contest (Fourth of July for you non-Americans)?

    And no National Donut Day contest (always the first Friday in June - Darn, we already missed it)? No flag day contest? No Fathers Day contest? No Eat Your Vegetables Day contest? No Take Your Dog to Work Day contest?
    (and we're not even into July yet!!)

      Are there any Rules?
      Entry page count, or genre?
      Or just go for it?

        Minimum 72 pages; no more than 120 pages; in three acts. Correct screenplay format.

        Must also have two lead characters who are female and who have a dialog with each other about something other than a man, (for example, SILENT HILL).

            I think those are Mark's butt cheeks, a clip taken from his infamous YouTube sex video.

            Generous offer! I guess Halloween isn't that far away...

              I need to go find an animated avatar with real barely-covered a$$ cheeks of the male persuasion so my fellow lady-writers can have equal-opportunity jiggling/ogling.

              Except that might get me labeled "unprofessional"......

                I'm just offering prizes for the contest. I hope the real hosts ( the adults ) around here will host the Halloween contest. I could host but I'm too lazy. Plus, right now I don't have reliable access to the internet.

                  Whew. I was afraid I missed another contest announcement and only had a weekend to throw up something average. Nice to know I still have a few months to do that.

                    I've heard about that one, but I think folks around here would walk it!

                      @ Mark/Mr Earth, I've been swallowed up by life but hoping to be about for Halloween. It's been nice to have a break and checked in only once recently, in weeks and weeks, but anyway... good to see some activity down here.

                        The most anticipated, participated, sometimes defibrillated, but hardly constipated writing contest in the world ( Well almost ) is upon us.

                        The Halloween Writing Contest.


                        Prizes are now:

                        First place: A full script read.

                        Second place: A fifty page read.

                        And third place is also a fifty page read.

                        Now we just need someone respocible, and capable of spelling to host this.


                        Good Luck.

                          Are we going to stipulate one entry per contestant this time around?
