Blake Butler/Lamination Colony is not not doing a neat (and free) contest involving words and fun prizes.
I will be using this as an excuse or occasion to write a story, which I can apparently only do if I'm under a deadline. And the deadline for this thing is not not a week from Friday. Between 1-2000 words. OK. I think I can make that work. I have a feeling I'd have more success with stories if I always just focused on word count, rather than character, plot, setting, whatever. Those "elements of storytelling" always fuck me over.
Information is here to be found.
