Quick Writes

Nothing fancy today - just a note that Jason Evans' Clarity of Night contest is open for business.

Write 250 words, using the given photo as a prompt. Check it out here.

There's prizes!  I'm going to be throwing something in for this one, as I continue to finish up a few shorts in preparation for throwing all my effort behind the novel soon.

I just had some excellent feedback from another writer on one of the stories, and tried to do the same for them in return - though it's always a somewhat prickly situation to offer critique to another writer - especially if they're a friend. My own critical style comes from the way I was critiqued during a recent college creative writing course. It's a little blunt at times, but I found that it helped me immeasureable.

Hopefully, if an excellent story comes of it, then it's all worth it.

Keep writing.



  1. Good luck with the contest, Chris. I'm sure whatever you come up with will be super.
