I’m honoured to receive first runner-up. Woohoo! (The last time I made the top three, I was second runner-up. Which means that next time… 😉 )
Thanks for running another great contest, Wyrm…ians(?)
My day was filled up with family obligations and freelance work, but I made time this evening for a few minor changes (one typo, some of the usual endless prose style nitpicks I do) and… whoops!
I always forget the gauntlet ends before midnight!
Well, I’m still pretty proud of what I turned in. 🙂
Looking forward to seeing the results later this week.
Got my entry in! That last scene ended up being twice as long as I intended. Go figure, right?
I hope to be able to polish it up and resubmit tomorrow, but the version that’s in now is finished, at least.
Good luck, Red and Dimitra! 🙂
FYI, I don’t think it really matters but the submit page says this at the top: “Just as a reminder, here’s w…[Read more]
Nice work, Dimitra!
I have one scene left to write, but opted to take a brief but also spooky detour this week. Now that’s out of the way, I’m looking forward to finishing up my entry here.
Plenty of time left. 🙂
How are the rest of you doing?
I haven’t had much time at all this week what with work and my parents visiting, and various other of life’s little curve-balls. But I managed to snag some hours for myself today and got out a good chunk of story first draft. Whew!
Hope everyone else’s writing is going well, too. 🙂
(But, you know. Not too well.…[Read more]
By the way, anyone writing for the challenge may be interested in this call for submissions, which pays 8 cents a word and closes on November 3rd:
A New Collection of Horror Stories Edited by Mark Morris (“…one of the finest horror writers at work today” – Clive Barker) After
Sundown is an eclectic, vibrant collection of t…
Just as a note, several of us are in the same online writing group as Erin and she knows the challenge for round 3 was to critique her story. So there is a non-zero chance she might potentially see responses here. 🙂
I really enjoyed this story, Erin! I especially liked how the language of the story matched Alrun’s…[Read more]
Like, literally literally or literally literally?
That’s it! My entry will be about a terrifying horror that strikes fear into the heart of writers everywhere: a world where literally literally means literally.
(More seriously, this is going to be a stretch for me. I don’t read or write much horror.)
Sounds busy, Dimitra!
I’m less sure about the validity of interpretive dance in a Gauntlet entry, but then, I haven’t seen it yet.
Here is a live preview:
Don’t try this one at home, folks. I’m a professional.
(Note: I am not a professional.)
How’s everyone doing with this?
I’m nearly done–largely because I will be out of town tomorrow so I need to upload by this evening or I won’t be in at all.
Of course, I might have been done already if I hadn’t decided to present my honest-to-bog opinion through the means of interpretive dance.
Which reminds me. Does anybody have a…[Read more]
Thanks, and congrats to the other round two contestants! I look forward to
your inevitable defeat at the hands of my neural networktesting my mettle against yours for the next couple of weeks!
Hope Steven recovers soon–even if he’s still a sick man afterwards. 😉
