Finding Something Friday on a Saturday Night

I'm not going to make a whole bunch of excuses about missing Finding Something Friday. I'm just going to dive into what I found yesterday (but didn't quite get around to sharing.) And I'm going to thank Beth Cato for bringing this contest back to my attention.

You know how I love the contests sponsored by Writer's groups. This contest, sponsored by the Ligonier Valley Writers, is a particular favorite of mine. And not just because I won a little Fortune the last time I entered it. I love this contest because it's Halloween themed, and the winning entries are read at a bookstore and at the local library in conjunction with a Haunted Storytelling Time. So, if you win, it's Fame and Fortune! I'm getting a little tingly just thinking about it.

This year's Flash Fiction Contest wants a little something, something about shapeshifters or werewolves, 1,000 words or less, and delivered by August 15th. No entry fee, too. Check out the Ligonier Valley Writer's website here to get the rest of the details. And if you want to read one of the winning entries from last year, you can go to Beth's website here for her take on zombies and breakfast foods.

So, time to start writing that creepy Halloween tale now! No, um, excuses.
