Write Club Fight Club

It’s that time, ladies and gents! Approach the center of the ring for your instructions.

Now, fighters, this is all of our first official fights. Remember to start prompting your fans on when to vote for you and the working title of your story. On Fight Day, only your title will be displayed. This way, the casual reader will have an opinion motivated solely by the title and the work itself. Your training is done as of September 20th. After that time, get your stories to me so I can look them over and set them up for Fight Day. NO EDITS will be done by me, only copying and pasting, so train well.

Now…the fun stuff. For your fight (this goes for everyone) you must meet this criteria:

The story must center around REVENGE.

  • The lengths, extent or interpretation of that word is solely up to the writer/fighter.
  • Revenge…

Calling All Writers!

I am certain we have all seen or been tempted by the idea of a collaboration with another writer for ideas or expansion into another genre beyond our wheelhouse. This is not a collaboration. This is combat. Literary speaking combat.

I am looking to those out there that may have interest in being part of a club. We will choose a topic/theme/genre or word and two authors will “battle” by writing a short story or teaser roughly 1500 – 3000 words in length. Fans, readers and participants can vote on which story prevails. Think of it as Epic Rap Battles meets Poetry Slam meets Fight Club with a pinch of Thunderdome in there.

The Club will not start until October 1, but I want to get a potential list going by early September to start pairing writers up against one another (and yes, I will have my hat in the ring as well). I want to find at least 10 interested writers (I have already heard interest from 2 before I started this post) and can take up to 20 initially. Depending on the Club size, we will post a battle weekly if not semi-weekly. We will try to implement a bracket once things start rolling. Each work is not going to be published, will maintain basic copyright laws and is mainly for fun and to get your work/name rotating out there.

All writers are welcome to apply, whether you’re published, unpublished, Indie, poets, bloggers or the occasional writer. Time commitment is up to you, but if it’s your first time, you’ll have to write. Simply email with a link to your work, or a portion of your writing (I won’t open attachments, sorry).

Now…Share, Share, Share! Get the word out to everyone.

It’s coming…



Jeyna Grace {Showcase}

This Thursday, I am showcasing one of my very first bloggers that I actually followed. Jeyna Grace is a fabulous author and blogger, releasing weekly posts of her work. She has a wonderful fan faction piece for Harry Potter (CHECK IT OUT). Additionally, she releases periodic short stories and has recently started one entitled Battle for Oz: Exitium. Oh, did I mention she is currently offering the first of this series for free?? (Better CLICK HERE)

Check out her page for all the wonderfulness she provides and, as always, you can thank me later. (Oddly enough, nobody ever thanks me…)

I’ll throw this out to the Twitterverse as well since it links back to free stuff. Oh and she’s awesome, let’s not forget that.
