Challenge Twenty-Six : Horror Flash Fiction

See full details here!

But here's the skinny:

In 500 words or less, write a horror flash fiction--which, by definition, is a whole story in only 500 words!

Is is difficult? Is it challenging? You betcha. But is it crazy fun?

Hell yeah.

So, this, as you can see from the link above, is inspired by a contest that is open to all authors--published or not--and there are even cash prizes. For the sake of the Guild, you don't have to submit, but if you get one done, why not? If you need any help on what to do should you want to, feel free to contact either myself or Slinky, who have both done this process for a little while now.

Deadline: The link says July, but for this challenge, how about the end of Feb? After all, the earlier you get it in, the better.

Happy writing and viva la quill!

Winter News: Upcoming Vlog, Challenges, and More

I hope each and every one of you enjoyed your holiday, followers of the Quill. In order to revive our precious Guild, your friendly Guildmasters have planned out a jam-packed Winter.

Guildmaster, Kimmi Gray, has talked Patricia and me into a Youtube vlog--can you believe it? In the vlog we shall be recognized by our nicknames Blitz (Kimmi), Squeak (Patricia), and Slinky (Ariyana--that's me). The first video will be a quick intro, but from there we'll be updating with helpful hints for fellow writers, challenges, and useless off-subject nonsense. Videos will be posted on a Guild channel, then, likely, uploaded onto the blog. Hope you all enjoy.

Upcoming challenges will be issued soon enough. For the original fiction and poetry challenges, we'll be listing publishers as well who might be interested in your content.

What's the "More"? Well, how would you feel about updates on our publishing successes and failures? We're also planning to provide you with info on some of our favorite Indie presses and useful websites.

Until next time,
Viva la Quill,
