August 2011 CONTESTS - Part II

The Jacob Wonderbar Funny Writing Contest Spectacular Happening Event - Happening now.  Contest closes 8/11 6pm pst/9pm est. Can you write funny?  It's tough to master.  Submit 350 words in the comments section of this post.  It can be any 350 words - an excerpt or a single piece of micro fiction.  You can win critiques from the legendary former agent/current author blog master Nathan Bransford.  

Miss Snark's August Secret Agent - 2 submission windows on August 15th.  If you read my blog, I KNOW you read Miss Snark and know about Secret Agent contests.  But I have to post about contests I know about.  It's a compulsion!  As always it's the first 250 words judged by a secret agent.  Recently I entered one of her contests and her email response bot is tough to get by.  It REALLY has to be in a plain text email or it counts all the HTML code as words.  For some reason, it kept saying I was going over even after I switched it over to plain.  I hope you have better luck!

  1. I know what you mean about Miss Snark's response bot. I wonder why it's so challenging to get past it?
