WRiTE CLUB 2013

soooo...yeah...D.L. Hammons is hosting WRiTE CLUB again... have you heard about it?

No?

Well lets just say its a battle...not of fists,  not of martial arts crazy kicks, not of ninja stars, greased watermelons or even spitballs....it's a BATTLE OF WORDS!!!! Yeah, baby!

What? You still aren't sure about it...well let me tell you a few details then you can scoot over there and  check everything out:



  • The modest writing competition whose inspiration was derived from the movie FIGHT CLUB is ready to go another round, and this year it’s leaner and meaner than ever!
  • the winners are determined by fellow WRiTE CLUB members alone!
  • This year the submissions will be cut-off on June 30th. A panel of ten judges will read all of the entries we receive during that time and pre-select 32 of the best writing samples to climb into the ring. Those 32 participants will then be randomly matched to compete over the next eight weeks, each of them hoping to make it into the play-off rounds and moving towards the ultimate goal – WRiTE CLUB Champion. 
  • Again this year, the most exciting part is the winner of the final round will be chosen by a panel of publishing industry professionals! Agents, Editors, Publishers, Marketers, and published authors
So yeah....go check it out...maybe submit...maybe just follow along...either way - this is one title bout you don't want to miss!

  38. I wanted to comment on the previous post, but was afraid you'd miss it. What movie was it that you watched when you were sick? That interchange between the characters sounds so familiar. I agree, the part about "talk about what you love, not what you hate, it's boring" is a really great part. Nailed it. For one of those kinds of movies, lol! Happy blitz day. Hope you'll be back full swing soon! (Sorry about previous delete I screwed up post.) Faith

  55. Courtney, what a passionate life you lead, full of people and things you love. So many people miss that joy even when it's surrounding them. I hope your joi de vivre leads you right into that bookstore.

  109. Greetings human Courtney,

    My human got an email. He couldn't read it so he left it up to me. And thus, here I am.

    Although neither my human or myself would ever get involved in any of these challenges such as the one by D.L., we do wish all those participating, much fulfilment and thoughtful interaction.

    In the ideals of a sharing, caring blogging community, I say, a peaceful weekend to you, Courtney.

    Pawsitive wishes,

    Penny the Jack Russell dog and modest internet superstar! :)
