Call For Submissions!

Ahem...I would like to ask my readers to begin contributing for this week's Free Write Fridays.

There seems to be a bit of confusion about this, so let me just explain:

I will post on Wednesdays, usually doing something other than explaining the procedures like I'm doing now...you know, like a "This is how revising works" or a "boy, editors can go screw themselves" or a "Hey, sa-weet, I got an interview at Master File on Tuesday morning, it's sounding promising and like it may work well with my school schedule next semester, tan-fastic!" followed by an explanation, rounding off with a concluding statement, then a PS in which I will ask for suggestions for that week's Free Write Friday.

Understand that at some point I intend to recieve several more than three suggestions per week, and I would like to be able to go to one place to find them, rather than to the comments sections for a couple of different posts for the suggestions.

Basically, what I am saying is, hold your suggestions until I ask for them. It may even come to pass that there will come a week in which I will not be doing a Free Write Friday (I'm looking at the last weekend in June, which may be free of all regular blog features...I'll do a clip show or rerun a classic or something), so don't jump the gun...MOTHER...although I liked your suggestion.

So yes. That is how things work around here, and I apologize, I should have made that more clear.

Hey, Steve from Master File called me today and I've got an interview scheduled for Tuesday Morning. Woot!

Please leave your FWF suggestions on this post.

So Long, and Thanks!

Short story, a young man - you name him, the conversation in his head on how he determined that on the way to his wedding reception would be a good time to tell his bride all the deal-breakers :)

short story, Harrold (45 year old, single male), he develops an itchy viral rash and must determine how exactly he contracted it, and who he may have given it to. Go.

I'd also like to make a suggestion, however, to your idea of free write fridays? Can we also suggest a "style"? I mean, it's entirely up to you whether or not you decide to use it. But what if wanted a short story, featuring Lila the vanilla flavoured jelly bean, and her fear of being eaten, and I wanted it to be a horror story? Would that be too much to ask? Perhaps.

What about a short story featuring Gene, the 60 year old parapalegic who has multiple personality disorder in which one (or several) personalities are unaware of the fact that he is paralyzed from the waist down, and I wanted the style to be stream of conciousness?

Damn, maybe I should have been a writer! Ok, well hopefully those absurd contributions will at least give you a good laugh.

OH, I also realize that as it is Friday here in N-Zed, that means it's Thursday in the South. Sorry I probably already missed your cut-off date. Well, perhaps I will have to resubmit my ideas next Wed instead. : )

How about this, a play featuring Anna, a young authorette, defending herself in court after being accused of taking grammar enhancing drugs after writing the great american novel :)

I love the wife's suggestion! Have you thought of creative writing yourself?
