“A blank piece of paper is God's way of telling us how hard it to be God.”
WritingRaw’s First Contest Winner is… Charles Sanchez! Stop in and read his winning short based on the word: WIDDENDREAM
NOVEMBER CONTEST: Write a 500 word or less piece using the following outdated phrase: "The cat's pajamas." The deadline for this will be October 23. The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate from Amazon.com and be posted on WritingRaw.com.
NEW COLUMN: Writing To Set Criteria by Raine Voss. An interact creative writing lesson. She provides the title for the piece (writers choice as to genre but limited to 600 words); 2 settings (place, emotion or both); 7 key words (all of which must be used); 3 randomly chosen numbers; and a colour... and YOU send the finished piece to her and she will choose the one which shows the best (and least forced) use of the criteria. Come on, give it a try.
COLUMNS: We would still like to offer space for columns - but these MUST be related in some way to writing or books. If you have an idea, please contact Weeb and check with him.
FLASH FICTION REVIEWS: Send us your flash fiction book reviews - no more than 250 words per review. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org
We are sure there is tons that we haven't hit on in this rambling piece, and we will update things throughout the month if need be. Until then, dive in and discover a new and emerging writer. We are sure you will enjoy this issue.
