I've been kicking around some ideas for a new contest recently. Sorry I haven't started one, it's just been crazy recently in my personal life. I know, I know excuses excuses.

Ericka- those are some great ideas but I know for a fact I wouldn't be able to host something weekly. If other posters were willing to get involved and run some of them it would be awesome.

Sweet! Why don't we brainstorm in here?

Also to let you guys know I'm thinking the next writing contest will be a personal essay. I'm just stuck on the theme. I want something interesting but vague enough that we won't have six essays describing the same ol' thing.

In what vein would the essay be?

Non fiction hasn't really been tried before. This could be interesting. :drool:

Thomas- I'm thinking a personal narrative. I was listening to Run DMCs My Adidas earlier and I thought it might be fun to do something similar-- like "where have your shoes taken you? Describe a particularly important event in your life from the perspective of your shoes". and then the writer can take that as literally or creatively as they want to.

But I dunno. What do you guys think about that?

I could probably participate in something like that. I'm not much of a fiction writer, but I was nicknamed "Miss Essay" in 10th grade. :D

Oh stop it. You're a woman who actually likes role playing, pirates, video games, action movies, anime, SF, and the movie 300. Oh, and you're a badass cook! Do you have any ****ing idea how rare you are?

... when did I ever say I like video games? I suck at video games, the only ones I play are Guitar Hero, Rock Band and DDR :lol:

I just did that "25 things about you" meme on Facebook, and trust me, I have a hard time coming up with things to talk about :P

Honestly, the biggest detraction from this contest for me is that I really don't have the time to write anything until May. I'm not even applying for grad school yet because it involves essay writing :P
