    LITERARY MANEUVERS
    The October Challenge


    A reminder of the prizes awarded to the winner of the LM.
    Their entry will appear in the WF Newsletter, which is a good chance to get your work widely circulated.
    Now we are also offering a Friends of WF (FoWF) subscription free for a month to the first place winner!

    So, do your best.





    Another round of LM begins! And this time, it will not only be our hands that will be exercised, but our palate as well. Our prompt for this installment, courtesy of Hawke, is:


    It happened in a mere moment
    In 650 words, write a story where the central action takes place in a mere moment.
    This is open to some interpretation.
    If you read back on page 206 of the LM Coffee Shop you can find some discussion on the matter.






    The judges for this round are as follows: elite, bazz cargo, Anna Buttons... and me (Like a Fox).
    (To the judges, send your scores to me via PM - and if we could aim to have them sent a week after the closing date that would be awesome.)

    Now a recap of the rules:
    1. The word limit is 650 words not including the title. If you go over - Your story will not be counted.
    2. You can no longer edit your entry after posting. There will be a 10-minute grace period, if you want to go in there and edit a typo or something, but really, you should approach this as if you were submitting your work to be published and paid for. When you submit, that should be your final work, the work you are happy with.
    3. And of course, there can only be one entry per member.
    As always, there are two ways to post your entry:

    You can opt to have your entry posted in the LM Workshop Thread which is a special thread just for LM entries in the Writer's Workshop. You would put your story here if you wish to protect your first rights (in case you want to someday submit the work to a magazine or whatnot). Take note: If you have elected to put your entry in the Workshop thread you must copy the link into this thread or else it will not be counted.

    If you aren't too concerned about your first rights, then you could place your entry right here in the LM Challenge thread.

    Everyone is welcome to participate. Judges are welcome to participate, too, but their entries will not receive a score.

    This competition will close on "Sunday the 16th of October".
    To avoid confusion I will close the thread at 11:59pm (Sunday Night) LOS ANGELES, USA time.


    This will make it 5:59pm on Monday the 17th for me in Melbourne Australia
    It'll be 2:59pm on Monday the 17th for Fuhrer in the Phillipines
    For anyone in Baghdad it'll be 9:59am on Monday morning.
    If you're in the UK (London Time) it'll be 7:59am Monday morning.
    If you're in New York it'll be 2:55am Monday morning.

    Daylight Savings may make me wrong here... if so, get it in an hour early to be safe!

    I hope if I haven't covered your area, you guys can figure out when it'll be for you.
    The world clock kind of does my head in.


    No comments, please - Only competition entries (or links to) to be posted in this thread.


    Now that all's set, let the writing begin!
