As you may have heard, November is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), where you sit down and write a 50,000 word manuscript in 30 days. While some of you may be up to that challenge, and indeed at it already, some of you may be just too busy to write a 50,000 word novel in a month. That’s where Lulu.com comes in!
This month, Lulu.com is running a short story contest, where you write a 600 word short story and publish it on Lulu.com. From Lulu.com:
“Throughout the month of November – all the way to December 1st – anyone can participate in our Short Story Contest and take the pressure off the creative process. Better yet, we want to help folks see their creativity available to the public as quickly as possible too, so we’re gonna help you create an eBook out of your short story that’ll go live in the iBookstore and on Barnes & Noble’s NOOK.”
Did I mention the prizes?
- First – Barnes and Noble Nook and $500 cash (plus free publicity!)
- Second – Barnes and Noble Nook
- Third – $100 Barnes and Noble gift card
All participants get a 20% off Lulu.com coupon when they enter, good for up to $100 savings!
With all this good stuff involved, why not put that imagination of yours down on Word and give Lulu’s contest a shot? 600 words will flow before you know it (in fact, one of my previous posts was just over 600 words long). Hop to it! There’s still plenty of time. As a bonus prize, if you read this post, enter the contest, and rank in the top 3, let me know and I might just feature you in a post! That in itself makes it worth entering, right? 😉
