Tips for Contestants

Writer Tip:

Are you running short of story ideas?

Here is a tip -- pick up a household item, something mundane. Now decide you are going to get a story idea from the item and get your imagination going from there. If you've never done this you would be surprised what can happen.

K.D. Reports that we have many good writers entering now and choosing the winners comes down to uniqueness of the story.

Illustrator Tip:

If you are having difficulty with an idea or the perspective for your art, go out and take a walk until you feel better, break away from the art for a bit. This can help you to re-focus.

Tomorrow:

I will publish the Semi-finalists and Honorable Mentions from the 4th Quarter.
Until then..... Joni

    Tips! Hurrah, we want more tips! Even better - get a whole 'how to' book out on how to approach short story competitions!

    PS: If you want original stories, then you're going to get two stonkers during the next two submission periods.
