Firstly, there is a poll over at [livejournal.com profile] crackwhore_muse about a possible prompt marathon and opinions are much appreciated. Don't know what [livejournal.com profile] crackwhore_muse is? Just ask and I'll tell you all about it. It's pretty awesome if we can get more people involved.

Okay. That's out of the way, I thought I'd share a bunch of links for places accepting submissions, hosting writerly things and also a few awesome blogs.

CALLING FOR SUBMISSIONS:


Tornado Relief Flash Fiction Challenge: Have you ever seen the rain?

All you have to do is write a flash fiction (under 1,000 words) about rain, post it somewhere, give Daniel the link and he will donate 5 dollars to Red Cross. HURRY! DEADLINE IS MAY 7TH

Seattle Review has changed their focus and will now only publish long form poetry and novellas. Poems between 10-30 pages and stories between 40-90 pages. Submissions close on May 31

Toasted Cheese's A Midsummer Tale
Midsummer Tale is open to non-genre1 fiction, creative non-fiction, and hybrids thereof. Ideally, stories will take place during a warm time of the year, and this element will be an integral part of the story.

The theme of the 2011 A Midsummer Tale writing contest is: water fire earth air. You may use one or more of these elements, literally and/or metaphorically.

Length: 1,000 words minimum; 5,000 words maximum.
Deadline for entries: June 21, 2011.

SORRY. THAT'S ALL I HAVE. TURNS OUT, THE OTHER ONES I HAD BOOKMARKED HAD ALREADY PASSED DEADLINE. :((

FUN WRITERLY OPPORTUNITIES


[personal profile] sholio over at [community profile] three_weeks_for_dw is hosting a Original Fiction Comment Fest

Drop prompts for fun, take up someone else's claims for even more fun! There are some pretty awesome prompts over there already, but it could always use a bit more.

Toasted Cheese daily prompt calendar. Pretty damn cool.

BLOGS OF INTEREST TO WRITERLY TYPES


Better Than Renting Out A Windowless Room: The Blessed Distraction Of Technology

I say, yes, you can rent out a hostage pit. You can also close your browser. It's called willpower...The Internet is not to blame for your unfinished novel: you are. People write novels in prison, for chrissakes.

"How not to bug the fuck out when writing a novel

Chuck Wendig is sort of my new hero in life. ♥ There is nothing he says that I don't agree with 100% (so far).

Why you should steal from other authors

and

How to steal like an artist and 9 other things nobody told me

I don't know what to make of there being two blogs toting the idea of theft in artistry. They do make valid points and were interesting though. The Austin Kleon one was entertaining and I was curious about him after reading. I discovered (he alludes to it a few times in the blog) that his artistry is making poetry out of blacking out newspapers and magazines, which... I guess is sort of cool... but yeah... IDK.
