2013: This Isn’t Romance
Hooray, epeolatarians! We’re in our third year, I just had my second child this past April, and now I’m about to turn 35! What does that mean for you? The worst prizes ever to come out of a writing contest, most likely (have you ever tried to knit with a colicky baby?), but it means it’s another chance to flex your bulging, buxom, … wait. What’s the theme?
“Sexy, Not Sexy” or “This Isn’t Romance” or “I’m Not in Love”
Inspired by a list produced by the Calgary Association of the Romance Writers of America (CARWA?), you’re to take 15 words from their collection of the sexiest* words and write a600 word short story.
The catch? It can’t be sexy. No romance, no erotica, no sensual situations. Yep. 15 steamy words, without the salacious story.
