EPEOLATRY CONTEST 2011
2011: On the Chopping Block
[The following was originally posted on LiveJournal. Yes, I’m an anachronism.]
Writers! Write a short story (600 words max.) using at least THREE of these words slated for deletion from Collins dictionary* by 5:47a.m., September 16th.
Bonus points for stories containing steampunk, sci-fi, and/or erotic themes because I’m a sucker for such stories.
I’ll post the top three with proper attribution and linkage by Mabon, and winners will each get a handmade gift from me. ♥
Feel free to post your submission as a comment below, or if you want to remain a nony mouse, send it via pm or email with a pseudonym you’d like to have me use instead.
In case you have trouble with the link, these are the words to consider for your writing:
*I’m a satyr; I love this word.
“Untitled” by Damashita [Please note: this story is erotic in nature]. Prize: hair fascinator.
“Temptrest” by Wytchcroft. Prize: purple hand knit scarf with knitted silver rose.
Honorable Mention: Betsy Bogert, who spent her time editing my work for Mutation Nation, due October 1st, instead of writing her own story. Prize: amethyst necklace.
