I recently came across a really cool online contest called Midnight Road, hosted by Jason Evans in his blog, The Clarity of Night. This is a great way to get those creative juices flowing. Based on a photograph, you need to write a 250 (or less) words story (or scene) in any genre you please. Nice, huh? Take some time to check out the entries, you'll find some very neat stuff. While you're at it, check out my entry, a little flash piece called Silhouette. And if writing is your thing, what are you waiting for? Give it a try!
