"Ascension"


It's that time again!!

Starting Wednesday, January 7th, please join Jason Evans at The Clarity of Night for his tenth, community-building short fiction contest.

Stumbling upon Jason's "Halo" contest a year and a half ago was a great gift, and very instrumental in establishing my own blogging presence. So I always look forward to seeing new participants, and touching base with the veterans who share in my enthusiasm. It's a wonderful chance to give and receive feedback, and to maybe win some booty (yes, Jason is upping the booty--$50 worth for first place!). Most importantly, it's just damn fun.

So if you're inspired by Jason's "Ascension," compose an original work of 250 words or less, any form/genre. Let's all rise to the challenge! January could use a lift. :)

Thanks Sarah. I think I will give this a try. An idea just popped into the old noggin'.

David, I was hoping to turn someone on to Jason's contests. Can't wait to see what you come up with! :)

Thanks Sarah. :) Contests are something that immediately became popular on my blog. And a good number of people have made big time friendships by participating. (Ahem.) ;)

Thanks for spreading the word!!

Sarah Hina said...

Jason, indeed. :)

I'm happy to spread that word. It's how I heard, after all! :) The contests really are so much fun--all your hard work is definitely worth it.

I'm looking forward to reading your piece, Sarah! :-)

Scott said...

I'm excited too. I hope I can think of something though. Same as every time I stare at the blank page--something always pops up. Cya on the funny pages.

Sarah Hina said...

Vesper, I can't wait to read yours, too. :) I always look forward to it!

Scott, your entry for "Running Wind" was fantastic. I'll be interested to see what pops up this time around. :)

I am in writer's block hell right now. I usually enter a poem, but I would like to do a flash piece for a change. Oh, well - if nothing comes to me - I will enjoy reading at least!!! Thanks, Sarah!

Aniket Thakkar said...

Thanks for guiding me to such a splendid event... Cant wait to read yours!

Sarah Hina said...

K, I hear you. Big time. :) Maybe it has something to do with the after-effects of the holidays, but I find that my own writing brain is being pretty stubborn.

I can't wait to see what you do come up with!! I loved, loved, LOVED your poem last time. :)

Sawan, I will. Promise! :) Not until next week, though. Thanks so much for your interest!

Aniket, I'm so glad you're participating!! I enjoyed your story. :) These contests are a lot of fun.

Hey thanks for the comment on my story...have you posted yours?

Sarah Hina said...

Ceedy, mine will be up toward the end of the week. :)

Thanks for your interest, and great job on your story!!

Scott said...

Sarah - I haven't seen yours yet. Hurry, time is running out!

Aniket Thakkar said...

Well Sarah, I have a feeling that you are the "Guest Author" Jason has been telling about... Isn't it? :-D

Sarah Hina said...

Scott, never fear! I'll be there. :) Can't wait to read yours! There's a lot of catching up to do today.

Aniket, our lips are sealed. ;)
