My sister sent me this link for an online writing contest called The Rule of Three. There are small prizes for the winners, but the thing I found most interesting is that the contest has some distinct similarities to the Friday Challenge.
All of the stories must take place in a town described by the three authors running the contest. The contest will run in four parts, one part each week. A series of prompts are provided, one of which must be used for that week's story. Overall, the story must feature three main characters with a different one of them taking center stage each of the first three weeks. The fourth set of prompts will be used to wrap up your story. There are no restriction on genre. Everything about the setting other than what the contest creators have provided is up to the individual writers. Finally, the authors have put a soft length limit of 500 words on each entry. Entries close on October 3, so go sign up now if you plan on entering.
This is a good chance to stretch your literary legs a bit and get some feedback from others outside of the Friday Challenge. If you don't have a blog site, don't worry, there are plenty of places where you can get a free blog site. Just ask if you aren't sure where to look.
