I was cleaning out my email inbox earlier today and saw a notice about the Mid-Michigan RWA Best Banter Contest. The contest, which closes in a few days (September 10th), is for published and unpublished authors. The requirements are simple: enter a scene (up to 1,500) words, along with an optional non-judged lead-in for the scene (up to 250 words), with your best banter.
“Do you have a scene with witty, fun dialogue between your characters? Show off your best story banter . . . enter the Best Banter Contest.”
The contest sounds like fun and I have just the scene in my mystery manuscript that I think will fit the bill. Now to get it spruced up and submitted before I forget. Again!
Meanwhile, this has been a short work-week but there is still one more day (or less, depending when you read this) to go. I have lots of things on my ToDo list, including a few walks in the park with the four-legged friend who is currently visiting. After the work is done and we’re back from our walks . . .I’ll probably stare into space for a while . . .but once that’s done, it will be time to pull out the old pen and paper and get some words on the page. I think I’ll start by giving today’s writing prompt and random words a try.
